Thank you!

Mark and I went to the neurologist today to go over the results from the MRI's that I had done a few days ago. Great news! My brain scan and eye scan both came back normal...which meant that it is highly unlikely that I would have MS. So, we have some answers. It turns out I have what is called Transverse Myelitis. The good news is that I have a very mild case of it. Many times when people have this they are paralyzed. It really puts things into perspective for me; it could always be worse. There is nothing that you can do for it. There is a very good chance that it will go away on its own and that the symptoms will go away on its own since I have it so mild compared to most people who have it. The last thing that I have to do is get a spinal tap this week; it will hopefully tell us what caused it (maybe a virus), and also the chances of me getting MS later on (which are very slight chances for me :)) So, I wanted to say thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers over the last couple of weeks. I really feel that I was blessed because of it. Thank You!
