Not trying to bother anyone

If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

I'm scared out of my mind. Of 2 things actually. I'm scared of the MRI I am taking on the 24th and my doctor telling me I have lesions again or I have atrophy. Also the baby has me worried.

I just hope I can keep this bugger slowed up enough I can get to see my kids get older! I really don't necessarily think I am RRMS anymore so I worry more. I have tried to quit worrying about the whole disease thing. I saw a cool statement by Patrick Swayze where he said paraphrased, "I'm not chasing a cure. You spend so much time you miss living what you have. " I figured it is good advice. I have a whole MS clinic and numerous others around the world trying to figure this thing out. I'm going to let them worry about it for me, trust if anything changes I will hear about it from my doc, and enjoy the time I have left in whatever capacity with my wife, child, and extended friends and family. I may not be dying but I am not going to let a case of pancreatic cancer convince me of what matter most.

Good luck on the 24th. No lesions and no atrophy.

Chris that is wonderful news-congrats :-D :-D
Prepare for your heart to swell 10 times with an unselfish love u never knew u had.

I was a stay at home Mum for a few years there. My son is now in school and nearly 5.
If u don't mind advice I would:
    Enjoy just lying in bed watching your baby. I was too driven to sort everything.
    Have fun - I never realised babies are great fun, especially if u bring them swimming.
    Take lots of photos and videos. Print them off.
    Nap when your little lad naps - it will help keep you mentally and physically well.
    Get out every day- be it a walk to a park, visit to friends or a playgroup or art gallery (little babies seem to love galleries) you will feel great for getting out of the house.
    Don't go shopping without muslin squares / dribbles and most emergencies can use a muslin sq.
    Finally be really selfish about getting enough rest. U may feel guilty but if u are unwell everything falls apart.
Congrats again and lovely to see u back again.

Chris, you're going to be a fine father, so try to put those worries to rest. The only advice I give new parents is never to wake a sleeping baby. Thanks for sharing the quote from Patrick Swayze. Sounds like you're in good hands with the clinic and your docs. Best of luck with your upcoming MRI - plz let us know the results.
