My all-body aches seem to be subsiding. Looks like the NAC really has been helping make the EBs of CPn burst prematurely. I may be able to re-start taking Flagyl again next week, after I feel better, and really get moving on killing ALL the CPn off.

Meanwhile, I see small incremental improvements constantly. Just today, my caregiver Vikki spotted major improvement in the spasticity of my right hand while trimming my nails. Even typing this JE is going easier than before. Baby steps, every day, add up pretty fast. Heck, last night I got into bed with minimal assistance ;)

I'll soon be switching from roxithromycin to azithromycin. I'll have my doctor write the script for 60 pills, "Take as directed." One prescription of 60 azithro pills will last 4 months, and cost me the same as a 1-month prescription of roxi. I can really appreciate the savings.

Hey great news on feeling better, how cool that spasticity is better and also that you got yourself into bed with only minima assist. Yeah! Every accomplishement is a positive step! Blessings!

Willow, that is wonderful news!  I'm glad you decided not to take a break.  Who knows, before long you will be back to doing your lapidary, not just attending the meetings.  I thought of this, by the way, because I have just spent an hour photographing pomegranate seeds, which look just like garnets glistening in the granite!......SarahImage removed.

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.

MsWillow, it is really a great news. Good thing you decided to stick with the ABX. This is a payback time. Sarah, the photo is great. I have one pomegranate each day, but my impression was they were very messy.

Cured of multiple sclerosis, stopped the Wheldon's protocol in Nov,2008. Use only LDN.

Pomegranates certainly are very messy: you should have seen my hands when I had finished photographing and my chin when I had finished eating. So it certainly was payback time.  They are extremely good for you though, as well as being very beautiful!......Sarah
