This is for Brenda who finally, after two years of Rifampin and flagyl, got her Doxycycline. She has been on it only for two weeks and today called to say: My grandchildren told me that I am walking better. I can lie on my back and draw my legs up and push them out again without cramps. I can turn over. Today I carried laundry out and hung it on the line. The feeling that I am dirty and have to get in the shower every ten minutes because my legs have movement under the skin, is going away (this was undoubtedly muscle spasms). I have lots more energy. AND .... her grandchildren came home with honor roll report cards. This report makes me dance for joy after the chance meeting with Brenda two years ago and finding that we share a debilitating disease, and now are sharing treatment. This is a very nice person who doesn't have a computer so I am posting her progress in the hope that one day she will join us.
