It turns out the rental place didn't have a tutu in my size...

You have to read the last paragraph of my March 2011 posting for the subject line to make sense.

It was another recordbreaking day in Dallas.  The people who say global warming is a myth had been strangely silent for more than a month as temperatures climbed to levels that even the residents of Phoenix or Tucson would have found uncomfortable.  Worse for the Texans was that the humidity had not dropped to desert levels so being outdoors was like being slow roasted in a convection oven.  The deteriorating asphalt of the parking lot outside his neurologist's office that he had skipped across like a frog jumping between lily pads at the time of his last visit had melted in the heat and looked almost new.   

As in the past, the examination went quickly; evoked potentials, a quick walk up and down the hall and something that seemed more like a police field sobreity test than anything medical.  His balance was not as sure walking a line heel-to-toe has it had been in March, but the neurologist chalked that up to the weight he had added since the last visit and not deterioration caused by the M.S. which otherwise was quite stable.

So, this is going to be one of those boring posts where someone says they've done the Wheldon protocol (religiously for the first year and with changes afterwards that were clearly disclosed in my blog entries from the time) and have 1) stopped deteriorating and 2) gotten better.  Gee, who would have thought that getting better would be boring?      

 

Not boring, nor yet commonplace.  But, we few who have regained some function hope that we ALL can wear tutus and dance into the non-believers offices!  Thanks for a delightful commentary. 

By the way, the latest I heard on climate change is that "It is all political".  Stay cool.

Don't know about the tutu, but I could really use a red clown's nose at the moment.

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

The dancer in the photograph looks nothing like me.  My nose is nowhere near as large.

CAP for M.S. 8/2007 - 3/2009.  Twentieth pulse metronidazole + INH completed 3/12/2009.  Intermittent treatment thereafter until 11/20/2009.

On a different post you can discover whereHD gets his abx from.  Then it will make more sense!...........

My first college degree was in Agricultural Engineering.  What else would you expect?

I wouldn't argue with people who have big noses. My wife has a big nose. She always gets her way.

Here's a poem:

Doors bang

Your torch-song

leaves me cold,

fellow-traveller; we are waiting

on the platform to which no train

will come. Doors bang in the wind,

fellow-traveller. Hanging signs

no longer mean. You sing for

your own predicament. Around:

forever: doors bang in the wind.

Sounds like the poetry that my grandfather used to write (he commanded a regiment in Korea during the period of significant hostilities).  I didn't find out that he wrote poetry until after he had died.  At least your family can enjoy it now while they can talk to you about its meaning. 

By the way, my Dentist has started taking blood pressure readings before he does any work on a patient.  I was in for a cleaning and annual check-up.  My blood pressure was 110/78.  Thanks again for giving me my life back.
