Just getting some side dishes ready for the feast at my sister in law's tomorrow. Wanted to update. There is still a faint whoosh (he can hear only in complete silence) and really mild headache, but Jeff says his energy and spirits are great. He didn't have a left jugular before, and now he does, so stuff has changed in his circulatory system. And Dr. Dake says his stents look perfect...he just has a weird left jug, but it's functioning now. He's outside chopping firewood with Henry now.
I asked him (when he was getting prepped to go for his 3rd endovascular procedure earlier this week) whether he regretted doing this procedure...and he gave me a big no. He is so happy to be energized and alive again, and has no regrets.
We've been answering hundreds of e-mails from around the world this week, mostly from Canada...and it's been a huge honor. People are sharing their lives, hopes, trials and dealings with MS. We feel so fortunate to be able to listen, offer some encouragement and maybe direction. We don't know if this is "the" answer to MS, but we do know there is a connection. We want to help get the fundraising going for more research, and are committed to doing that we when get back in southern California.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. We appreciate you all so much-
