Hi everyone, just logged on here for the first time in months to be greeted by a lovely message from JBK asking after me and Rachael. I hope all are doing as well as they can and not suffering too many problems escpecially now the weather is changing and becoming a bit more warm. Rachael is doing really well, she has been on Tysabri now for 8 months with no relapses, she had a pseudo relapse a few months ago but this was due to having shingles and not a real relapse so Tysabri seems to be doing it’s job at keeping the disease at a steady level. She has been working in a nursery now for about 3 months and only missed the days she goes for her infusion, they have been very understanding about her taking 1 day off a month. Unfortunately she is still waiting on the DVLA getting back to her with her provisional, she applied for that in Jan, DVLA wrote to her neurologist in March, he replied she was fine to drive at the very beginning of April and she has phoned them several times but they are waiting on their medical guy to read the report before making their decision, I don’t know why it is taking so long as I think nearly 6 months to approve a provisional is a bit excessive but hey ho, it is what it is. Rachael was talking about moving out to live in a city about 30 miles away with her friend and both of them were applying for jobs there, her friend got a job in a nursery but so far Rachael has had no luck but was looking at flats for her and her friend to rent. This week she has changed her mind as she was a little fatigued and just wanted to sit cuddling me and needed me to reassure her, think the thought of having to take care of herself and the fear of needing me and my being so far away scared her so she decided this week she was not moving. She will probably change her mind again and it scares the bejesus out of me but I have to let her go as she says she may not be able to live by herself in the future so she has to do things just now while she feels so well. She is also going on holiday with her friend, one week in Ibiza, I am scared witless about this but know I just have to wave her off and hope she comes back the way she left, not pregnant, no other disease and with great stories.
