I wanted to give those of you who care an update on what's going on with my health and medical situation. I am doing well and making good progress as my nerves continue to heal. As most know, I ended the three months of plasmapheresis in October before having the catheter removed at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. I am still on an immune suppressant, and will be for several months. I cooked and catered our son's holiday party for his business last weekend, something that I would not have been able to do a month ago. I'm much stronger, but still have weakness and sensory numbness in my feet and my knee reflexes have not returned. I can't stand on my toes, walk fast, or run. I return to Johns Hopkins in late March for a check-up and evaluation. It's been a tough year but there is now light at the end of the tunnel. I'm hoping to be able to go to some sewing events next year. I just have to be careful not to be around sick people who have colds and the flu. This may preclude flying during the season for those.
