The best news was today with the neurologist. Two of them actually worked to confirm their observations, but they both felt and believe that I am showing neurological improvement for the first time in over 2 years. I have wanted to hear and believe that for so long, I just started crying. My feet are not showing much improvement yet, but my thighs were stronger, and parts of my leg that were previously dead to most any sensation, were showing signs of life again. They said that seeing improvement this early is very unusual, but that they were cautiously optimistic. The news was very encouraging to say the least, but it doesn't guarantee how much things will or may come back. For me it was just such a needed boost after all of this time.
They are going to try to objectify my results with some tests Friday morning, and I am hoping the machine proves them right. In the mean time we have had a chance to reconnect with some old friends here and we look forward to getting home Saturday. My love to all, Rick
