Raven via Flowers4MS Update on Angela,
Angela had her MRI last week and it showed that the lesions in her brain continued to spread. They did another lumbar puncture to test for virus levels to see if the spread was due to PML or to IRIS. She was admitted to Johns Hopkins on Wednesday and began taking an experimental treatment for the PML on Friday. She has been speaking a little better this weekend, but is currently bed ridden. There is not much else to report. We are really in a wait and see period to see how she responds to this new treatment. Again thanks for your support and for the information many of you have sent our way. Each of these options had been discussed with our doctors and the medical staff here is in touch with many of the leading PML experts throughout the world. All of these treatment options are experimental at this time. Our doctors feel most confident in this particular anti-viral medication.
I saw Angela this evening. She is doing better, little by little. I really would like to do a more full report. She is talking a LOT more and even using her right hand to gesture as she is speaking.
an update on Angela Flowers4MS
Good news. Angela will be discharged from the hospital on Sunday. She continues to get better. She is walking more. She climbed some stairs today. She is talking more clearly and making jokes with everyone. I do believe in miracles. Thank you all.
