Well, I did it.  I filled out the enrollment forms for Tysabri.  My doctor is not yet certified to infuse (says beginning of april) but I should be able to hit up the local hospital for my first dose.  I don't know when, but I hope soon.  I am scared, but I can't do this any more.  Tonight I'm at 100.4 again.  I laid around all day -- it was a horrible day, losing control, pain, the whole nine yards.  Oh, I managed to not throw up, though.  That was good...  But I can't keep this up.  It's surgery or this, so here I go...  I'll let you guys know how it goes.

I wish you all the best  and I hope this is the miracle cure for you.  I am sorry you are feeling so lousy but I understand your depression and the feeling of beng afraid of the unknown.

Do not give up hope and we are praying for you.
