In loving memory of Holly. It's been five years ago today. My buddy drove me up there as that was well out of range of my capabilities. He would call Holly with updates and she would post here. Meanwhile my wife and two girls were back here, my future son was gestating in the belly, the future was a big fat question mark, nothing else. Down to my last three shots of Avonex, no real hope for symptoms as it was hot like it is now. Insurance running out in a few months and very little support system. Neurologist trying to prescribe different drugs for symptoms which did absolutely nothing.
And another kid on the way, with no idea how I would be able to work and support my family.
What kind of man am I that is so young and so dependent on others? I am just a burden to everyone.
Which is why we named our son Noah, because Noah is all about new beginnings.
This year, I worked 7/12's night shift, driving 50 miles to and fro. Did that for nearly 50 days straight. Then, rented a 31' RV and took the family up to Big Bear for 3 days. Fishing, pontoon boat across the lake, and lots and lots of stars.
We had help with Stanford, lots of it. Without that it would not have been remotely possible. Which is why I like to revisit this thread every now and then, it was so nice being in a strange place getting strange things done on a wing and a prayer, and people like Holly backing you up.
And its five years later and still going strong. Just holding on for the ride here....
