It's been a couple of days since I last blogged, but it's been pretty busy around here this weekend and a lot has happened.  For one it is a lot harder to type because my hands are even worse...if that's even possible.  I can't feel the spaces on the keys and the range of motion is less.  So I'll keep this one short.

I have been taking Solumedrol intravenously for the past 4 days. Tomorrow is my last day.  It isn't helping so my doctor is going to call the neurologist tomorrow to let him know.  Basically if there was any inflamation on the nerves then this would help.  I was supposed to take it for 3-5 days.  Since it isn't working I will have to try more severe meds.  The doctor did tell me that this probably means I am at a different level of MS which is not a good thing, however I still don't know what it all means.  There are still lots of questions and new symptoms such as being very tired now and having issues with my taste buds.  One day it was lack of taste, now water tastes bitter, and coffee tastes like water.  What can I say?  Just praying that we find something that helps....soon.

  1. Hi Charis,
    I just read your blog today, and now my heart is so full for you. Just know that I will be praying for you, and asking God to touch your heart with His daily provision of courage, strength, patience, and especially His LOVE!

    I so agree with the verse you posted about how we will have trouble in this world, and it is especially true that Jesus tells us not to have fear, because He has overcome the world! Cling to that truth!

    Love & prayers,
