Well, the days seem to be coming filled with momentum. Wholly macaroni. Whew! You are truly incredible, so I worry even more about you. Do take care, and vacations, and all the right food and wow, have ever so many depended on so few for so much? Too much stress.

But thank you from the bottom of my struggliing heart. My wife and kids thank you too. And all the frigging frigates and other ships at sea. Hoo, lawd. Hope I don't wake up.

Bless you.

I'm crying... tears of happiness and gratitude... and relief.

"Thank you" doesn't even begin to cover it, but it's a place to start.

Thank you for being there for us.

Thank you so much Dr. Sclafani. This really means a lot to me and to all the other MSers, friends, and family in the world. Your work is changing our lives in a way many of us thought was not possible in our lifetimes.

I wish you all the best for your work, and success in all you do. Thank you for reaching out to us patients.

I wish I could've been at your Michigan fundraiser yesterday, but hopefully I'll catch a later MS presentation in person!
