Tomorrow is my widget counter birthday AND I may have some good news

Tomorrow is the official one month birthday mark of my little widget counter at the bottom of the page. Now I know blogging isn't about how many people read your stuff but I must admit that I am always bedazzled that anyone reads this drivel at all. And someone does because I only have about two friends who read this regularly and we've already established my family's view on my writing (stupid, waste of time, never get you anywhere) so we know they aren't reading this either.

So my deepest and most divine thank you's from the bottom of my wizened old heart to each and every cyber angel that comes to visit and then gets their cyber-wings at last! (In case that made no sense, that was a reference to a famous Christmas movie whose title is on the tip of my MS tongue, just out of reach.)

And shhhh... I'm gonna tell you a secret. Lean in close. Closer. Look around and make sure no one else is watching you.

(** Super sensitive secret material** I have procured an appointment with a new neurologist of my choice who offers Tysabri more than one day a month. I actually talked to their office today and they are sending me a bundle of paperwork to do in advance of my appointment with them next week!!!!! They also asked me to bring any films or discs of my MRIs with me so that the neurologist could look at them.

OMG! A doctor who looks at these super ridiculous pricey MRI materials instead of just reading the radiologist's report, can you believe that? And, get this, the office lady said I could see the P.A. or alternate between the the P.A. and the neuro, or thisisflippingunbelievable here, I could just see the neuro.

I am dancing and humming Christmas carols, my friends. With a smile on my face. Nothing is stopping this Flashdance moment. I feel on top of the highest mountain looking around and finally seeing some sunshine.

Free at last, free at last, I will be rid of Neuro #4 soon enough and that, dear readers, has brought me to the mountain top.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear widget!
Congrats on getting a new neuro. Let's hope there's no dropping shoe or candid camera dude jumping out to say "just kidding"!!!

I just replied to your comment on my blog.

Figured I'd give you the heads-up, since a.) it took me a few days to answer and b.) my blog doesn't notify people when they get replies to their comments.

Hope you are well!

Well I enjoy reading your blog, but I sure wouldn't call myself and angel...cyber or otherwise!

I am so happy that your happy! I will be hoping and praying that everything goes exactly the way you hope. I think you deserve it!

(I always get a rush when I see that someone from another country has read my blog. Makes me giggle!)

Thank you so much for continuing to read and comment and just be my "friends" that actually get it.

We know that people don't get MS, until they get it or some other life-long disease like this. We don't really have a fancy celebrity spokesperson or a whole special TV show asking people to stand up for MS. (Not that I am bashing that because I am not.)

This is just one of those under the radar diseases that mostly make you "look good".

If only they could see our brains and spines! LOL

Thanks again everyone.

Oh. My. God. Flashdance! I thought I was the only one who still loved that movie! I even have some sweatshirts that sit off the shoulder and some leg warmers. Now I will have to post my "Flashdance" pictures. Thanks for the inspiration!
