Well I haven't updated in awhile. That would be a good thing on this blog. That means I'm healthy and doing well. As you can see above, I have been living life to the fullest and having a great time.
Dr. Engel sent me a letter telling me that I don't have to email him until next year and that he is really happy about the progress I have made.
I have almost worked a full year of teaching, 8 1/2 more weeks. I have done great and been more active and involved in the students than ever. I do have the most trouble with the weakness in my face. I notice my eyes drooping, my face not perky, and my throat and speech a little slured and difficult to swallow. This could be because I am more aware of what is going on now, and know my body better. My large muscles are doing great, and I am throwing Haley up in the air, and chasing her around the house!
This time last year I was preparing for the Mayo Clinic. I found out on April 2nd that I would be headed North! I wanted to update because it seems that when you are sick, all you read online was the negative stuff and the sickness. It seems when people get well, they stop posting and all you read is the negative. I want some positive. So here is the postive... if you have MG or CMS, you can get better and you can lead a normal life. My suggestion is to pray and find our faith in God and he will guide you through all of your good and bad times in this life.
