Ok, so there's good news:
* the "thing" that happened at the beginning of this summer was definitly not a seizure.
* the thing in my tonsil is done being treated, so I can start the steriods.
* the mri showed lots of new leisons, and the ones that are the same are much bigger than they were.
* it's a relapse, and I've been on Avonex for 13 weeks, so it should be working fully by now and not be having this relapse. She is going to evaluate in a few weeks, but I may be changing drugs.
Looking for the funny things:
(I'm trying to stay focused on the positive and look at the funny side of it all. Steriods give me an awful taste in my mouth.....like pennies. I said to the nurse about half way through, "can I have some cranberry juice and crackers to get rid of this awful taste?"
She said, "You are one of the ones that can taste it?"
I said, "Yes, can't everyone?"
She said, "No, just some."
My response: "Well then, arn't I just lucky."
