Catfreak's date for the testing and intervention

Alex called me today about Noon my time or 10AM Stanford time. She gave me a choice of Aug 24-25 or Sept 2-3. I spoke with my husband and we decided Sept 2-3 would work best for us since we are on vacation now and need to get back and get everything ready like flights and hotel.

She is still working on my insurance.

relapsing/relapsing & collateral vein formation

I know we think that the cyclical nature of early MS is due to the plasticity of the brain alone - recovering and finding new pathways to work around the lesions -

- but is it possible that an occlusion of the veins causes relapse, and the subsequent formation of collateral veins around the blockage permits a return to a more normal state?
