My Tysabri Diary...

WOOOOHOOOO......5 days after my Tysabri infusion Monday.....today being Saturday, 10/21...get this: I lifted my right foot about an inch off the ground by just thinking it to move, and I moved my left foot forward about an inch too! I started crying tears of joy as I had not been able to move my feet or legs at all since last year, 6/5/05! I could only do this one time, but THANK YOU GOD, I'LL TAKE THAT ONE TIME IMPROVEMENT!!!! I just pray I can do this more and more with each passing day. I'm making very small, slow improvements, but improvements just the same, WOOOHOOO!

Thank you all for your positive comments...I can hardly wait until my next infusion, YeeeeeeeeHaaaaaaaw! :)

(((hugs)))
Love, Lauren

    That's great!

    Your nerves are communicating to the parts of your body that you want them to.

    Even when its imperfect (lots of spasticity implies lots of systemic noise, which can be managed,) it is a whole lot more encouraging, isn't it? :-)

    Stay calm, cool and collected ... And wear a satisfied smile. (I'm smiling right along with you.)

    Interesting, thanks for sharing. I have been given option to start Tysabri, but have not made up my mind yet. Good to hear some stories. Nobody on my MS forum cares about Tysabri and nobody has been infused.
