A year ago you could never have imagined where you'd be today. You are both amazing and inspiring. Thank you so much for everything you've done! All the best as recoveries and discoveries continue. :-)

...am so glad to have found such a caring group of people. No matter what happens with my MS, I know I have found a new family.

Thank you, each of you, for being here!

Jeff's up at Stanford today for his one year check up!! He's had the MRV/MRI (said it's much faster than it was last year) and is meeting with Dr. Dake now. Will update when we know more.
can't believe how fast this year has gone!

W00T! He's coming home this afternoon. Stents look good, left side is still weird above the left stent (like it was in November), but the actual stents are great and so is bloodflow. No reflux, jugulars are working. NO NEW LESIONS, no enhancement, no progression --this is huge. Jeff had over 20 lesions at diagnosis 3 years ago--his neuro will compare his new MRI to his old one to see if there is lesion healing (too many for Dr. Dake to compare)

He'll try a no caffeine regimen to see if he can get some headache and whoosh relief (still an issue). Dr. Dake may go in again above that left stent someday in the future and try a roto-rooter routine, but that's for another day.
The good news is, Jeff's got f-l-o-w!
yippee-
