Brain Delay

Hello everyone, Sorry for the delay in my response. I know you believed I was starting my trial on February 16th. I was supposed to, but they cancelled that morning. I didn't want to write until I had a new day with confirmed appointments, which I do now. My new start date is Wednesday, March 4, 2009. I begin at 9:45am going over paperwork and signing consent forms. At 10:45am, I will have my new MRI, followed by an evaluation by my neurologist, Dr. Steven Beall. On Thursday, March 5, 2009, I will have a chest x-ray. This is all the items they need to do for screening the patients recommended for the clinical trial. Based on these results, they will decide if they agree that I am a good candidate for the study. I will update you after my screening process next week and as I learn more about dates and procedures. Thanks again for your support, patience and love. Hopefully this will be the last brain delay...

Brain Wash

Well, the trial is set to begin!! Yeah!! I hope I know what I am getting into. Anyways, the head of Research at Michigan Neurology called me today. I will be screened on Monday, February 16th at 10:30am. I will keep you posted as to what tests they do and how everything progresses. Please keep me in your prayers that this will help me and be an answer for me. The last few weeks have been a real struggle. I have been extremely exhausted and weak. I am losing my balance again, not to mention the double and blurry vision. So, basically no changes, just more frustration. Hopefully, that can be replaced with some hope now. My love and gratitude to all! Let the brain washing begin...
