Well, my phone alerted me earlier that my lab results came in. I had my mom read it for me... and I tested positive for the JC Virus... I guess, in the back of my head I was thinking that it was going to come back negative & I wouldn't have to think about the complications Tysabri could cause... but now that's sometime I have to take in to deep consideration. I'm of course, going to talk to my neuro about it.
I'm thinking that sense I've ONLY been on Avonex... that I'de like to try something else besides Tysabri first, unless my neuro thinks that my MS is too progressive for another drug besides Tysabri. I'de probably look into Copaxone, if I do have the choice. I've heard wonderful things about Copaxone... even though I know it's every day, at least I wouldn't have the change of contracting PML.
Ugh, this feels like being diagnosed all over again, except for the fact that my diagnosing neuro didn't really tell me my options of medication... he just handed me the intro packet to Avonex. So, I guess it's time to really do some research and look at my options.
On another note, Jason (my oldest son) is sick.... and now I'm not feeling well.. It's like GREATTT I'm not on Avonex... so I guess I can just hope and pray that I don't have yet ANOTHER relapse. Because that would just plain suck.
On a GOOD note, tomorrow is my 6 year wedding anniversary, so I don't know what we're doing exactly... but James has something planned up his sleeve. I've been in a lot of pain lately, I don't know if it's cause of the weather change we just had or what, but I feel like crap. Good thing is, I got almost all of the Christmas presents wrapped/bagged. Now I just have to remember what I did with a gift card I bough... cause I can't find it anywhere... Stupid MS. I probably put it somewhere, where I wouldn't forget it... UGH!
Well, I'm gonna go hang out w/ James by the fire :)
