Nearly twelve years ago, I first posted a Blog entry announcing that having "struck out" in my attempts to find a physician who would prescribe the antibiotics for the Wheldon Protocol, I was "striking out" on my own. Not having any medical training, I did manage to put myself in the emergency room a couple of times, but my management of the endotoxins got better with time and I successfully completed the regime. Since then, I gained back just about everything the M.S. had taken away from me with just a few tiny reminders that I once had M.S. I retired last March and in a few weeks my wife will follow me "out the door". We are headed to a derelict catfish farm in Northern Arkansas so far away from anywhere that even Verizon's highly vaunted cell phone network can't hear us and that means I will disappear from all of the on-line communities that I have enjoyed over the years. Thank you for all the instruction, encouragement and support.
