Maybe I could run (walk) the Iditarod

Here I am at  Day 5, post Flagyl the 14th.  My mind is clear, it is winter (NC  version. That is why we are here- it is like Texas with trees).  I am walking really well and yesterday walked 1/2 mile over rough ground because I could.  I had admirers with me-  our 4 dogs.  They thought it was a great idea!

 

The most amazing thing is that I am not only not freezing, I am comfortable and it can be in the 40s F.  For a number of years I have worn as standard outside clothing below 50 F.: t-shirt, turtleneck. sweatshirt, snowsuit, down jacket.  It has been in the 30s F. and I have  worn only t-shirt, turtleneck, and sweatshirt, at times removing the sweatshirt in the barn.  Only twice have I worn a jacket because it was raining.  We have a down comforter that goes to  -20  and it is still put away.

Never did I think life would be this good again!  We are now planning to go to the National Dairy Goat Show in 2006.  It is in Indiana, close as the Nationals go.

We are in NC but we have dairy goats and show as much as possible.  The National Show is in Indianapolis this summer.  Where are you?

Rica- I'm always so happy to read your continued improvement. And it "shouldn't be happening" because MS doesn't get better... Looks like you'll just have to disappoint a bunch of neurologists and get better anyway. I might say you are getting their goat, but from you that's obvious!

Wishing you continued, rebellious improvement and increased warmth!
