I feel so guilty for not posting a blog entry for a couple weeks!  How rude!  Actually, I’ve been going through a bit of an MS flare-up.  A nice new lesion on my brain (I had an MRI a couple weeks ago) caused my right let to go a bit gimpy.  I was able to see my neurologist in Hamilton soon after the symptom started.  He ordered an IV steroid infusion for four days.  I had my last one yesterday and am noticing improvements today – yea!  I’m so glad we started treatment soon after the flare-up started.  I shall be back to frolicking about in no time!  The nice thing about the IV was that the nurse came over to our apartment each day and hooked me up for about an hour.  The line stayed in my arm, so at least I didn’t have to have a new one each time.  Little Mya typically kept me company during the infusions:

I decided to help out the nurse on the second day, by setting up the “fluids” on the IV pool before she arrived:

Unfortunately, the vodka fusion was a no-go.  Oh well, I tried!

The kitties have been their typical insane selves lately.  The other day I came home to the mitten drawer open, with mittens in all different rooms.  Abby enjoys hiding socks and mittens.  Needless to say, she’s very easy to shop for at Christmas:

The same night I made myself some vegetable soup for supper.  I went into the kitchen to get something and came out just in time to see Mya jumping off the table.  What a show-off:

I’m so glad I have everything all ready to go for Christmas.  I’ve had most of my pressies purchased and wrapped for a few weeks now.  I just have a couple more to wrap and I’m totally done.  Chuck and I will spend a couple hours at the apartment on Christmas morning.  We’ll open a few presents then pack up the rest plus the kitties and head over to my little mother’s house.  We’ll probably spend a few hours opening pressies, sipping Bailey’s then have our Christmas dinner.

So there’s my joyous update.  I will try to never allow such a lapse between blogs ever again!  *lowers head in shame*

Today’s symptoms:  Quite weak today just because of the long week I’ve had dealing with this flare-up.  Still, I’m walking better today and more coordinated.  I’ll sleep well tonight and feel even better tomorrow.
