Happy birthday C!

Wishing a lovely day to our favorite brand-new three-year old, the little girl with the curl right in the middle of her forehead.  We love you!

Health Update

This week I got all my eye test results, got blood work, and had an infusion.  All went well, and though the path forward has not changed, I am encouraged!  Let me share a few highlights, with links to details for my medical geek friends:

  • The EOG and ERG went well at UNM: the ERG was stable and the EOG was actually somewhat improved!
  • Despite one of the most unpleasant experiences I've had getting an FA, everything appeared stable, as well as could be seen.
  • My vision field test was totally stable.
  • Everything looked awesome in my blood work, including a very normal-range sed rate (which hardly every happens) and a substantial drop in my c-reactive protein (these are soft markers for inflammation).
All of this is excellent, God-praising news, especially when considering that this is the longest I have gone between tests (6 months) and all that time on my half-done of daily med  (500 mg of mycophenalate twice a day, and 500 mg of inflectra every 8 weeks).   We couldn't be happier, and would appreciate your prayers that in six months, we will still be stable and can cut the inflectra in half.

So, our road ahead includes no change, but great hope, and improved energy levels.  God has been so very good to me!  Join me in praising and thanking Him, Gentle Readers!
