Houston we have power…

Sept. 8, 2013: Sunday – Moscow.

Well, seems the battery decided to charge a little for me this morning, so I can actually catch you up with everything that’s going on.

Below are the pieces of paper given to me by Dr. F showing my numbers for the day. The vampire comes in mighty early, to draw the blood so it can be ready for him to visit after breakfast. The number that I watch is the Leukocytes, this is my immune system dropping and kickin’ MS out the door. So, you can see I’ve had a steady drop, and today it’s 0.1 which is pretty darn close to as bottom as you can get. He said it will probably bottom out at .05, but then engraftment will begin to take place over the next 4-5 days. This is when those babies start to do their job and close the door on MS for me.
