Multiple Sclerosis, Vitamin D Therapy, and Surgery

I had the surgery to remove the port from my chest left over from chemotherapy and it was a piece of cake. They checked my oil, rotated my tires, and washed my windows, and did it all at record speed. I was finished before I knew it, not even having time to get a good whine started. The nurses, the doctors and even the candy strippers were excellent! My candy stripper was a 40 year old guy named Darrel who was a body builder! I can't catch a brake! The doctor told me to take it easy and I'd be back to normal, what a horrible thought!

I took my second dose of vitamin D on Thursday, all 50,000 units. They told me in the hospital that they weren't mg, 50,000 of those would kill me! I think 50,000 of these are killing me! I am having all kinds of unusual things going on. I have numbness like I haven't experienced in many years. It's hard to gauge if it is a sensation of more, or less feeling? I'll tell ya what it is, it's a dead feeling! I'm having problems with things like manipulating a fork, a tooth brush, all of those little things.

Thanks to everyone who inquired how I made out under the knife, and thanks to everyone who checks on how I feel day to day too. I need to start feeling better, this has gotten old. I have things I want to do, and this MS crap gets in the way. I'm hoping the D will do its job, and give me the opportunity get back in the game a little bit, this sitting on the bench sucks! I'm getting ready to start drilling my cans for my solar heater, I need to feel better so we can go off the grid! I even have a house picked out when the time comes, just need to feel good.

You just have to stay upbeat. Here ia some advice I heard from a pre-med student he said and I quote, " My advice to you is to start drinking. Heavily!!" He's pre-med you got to trust him.
