Runnin’ Rough

I did everything that I could do to stay away, but the gravitational pull of the hospital obviously has a strong, unyielding grip on me, and this last trip to the hospital was just plain frustrating. This time I had to make the dreaded trip to the ER because I was running a fever of … Continue reading

Quite frankly, I’m friggin’ bored

A significant span of time has passed since I’ve provided y’all with a fairly comprehensive overview of my recent health status.

But, we recognize that some of you are not quite as plugged … Continue reading

The therapy is very costly, and the doctors don’t feel that that my limited response (thus far) is worth the expense, and the risk. I will receive two more infusions, but if I don’t … Continue reading

From the Trenches

Thanks to all for your enthusiastic and supportive messages yesterday (on FB). Will today prove to be  good day #2? I sure hope so, and I’m going to test it out by making an attempt to go mattress shopping today. For the past year and a half I’ve been sleeping on a cheap soy-based foam … Continue reading

Down for the Count

Yes, I’m down—both figuratively and literally. For the past three to four months I’ve been experiencing mild to moderate muscle weakness primarily in my trunk, neck and upper thigh muscles. At first the weakness was fairly minor.  After a couple of hours of sitting up, I would just start to experience an overall sensation of … Continue reading
