My Son's Military Service

After being a proud military mom for 5 years and 8 months.......I am so relieved to have my son home safely back from the Marines!  Jacob will go on to new careers now.

Everyone may have not have been happy at my house because the first morning Jacob was here.....I went outside early and saw this scene of poop by Jacobs car!  

Our 15 year old dog Pepper, left him a message.......we can guess what Peppers message was but I thought it was funny cause the old dog still has spunk!

My Baclofen Pump Maintenance

I had a baclofen pump implanted in my belly 4 years ago.  I have had great results maybe since I had taken baclofen pills for many many years. 

I was taking 80mg which is near the limit of 100mg, but after the pump it is only 57mcg of baclofen intermittently 24 hours a day.

It has relieved almost all spasticity which helps me to walk again with a walker.

The only maintenance is the pump has to be refilled every 6 months which means a big trip to Atlanta (happens to be tomorrow).  I take it serious since the results can be fatal if I do not get it refilled. 

Disclaimer:  I truly was relieved when Basic Home Infusion contacted me asking me to do a guest post on their blog.  Basic Home Infusion is the top nationwide intrathecal pump management service.  It is a relief to know of them since it could be very difficult to get to Atlanta twice a year for the rest of my life....all in all I have nothing to complain about!

Can You See The Lizard?

Amazing how well it blends in!  (top left if you need a hint:))

My Blog is on a Best Blogs List

My blog is on  Healthline.com:  Best MS Blogs of the Year!

I never started out to be a MS blog...... as you can tell with a title like I have! 

 If I had spent more than 2 minutes on the name of my blog back in 2008.......it could have been a little more creative.  

I was thinking I am not a writer so what would I want to tell the world?   Be thankful cause it could be worse in a heartbeat! 

Just look around....it don't take long to see someone in worse shape than you are.
