Multiple Sclerosis, Electrical Therapy, Vitamin D, and The Parents Are in Town

The website I was talking about yesterday was one about Dr. Terry Wahls. It's an inspiring read, and proves that hope is a good thing. Dr. Wahls is going to have a clinical trial for the method she used to battle her MS. I'm curious how the introduction of electricity to the muscles will help someone like me who has lesions on both the brain and spinal cord. I thought the entire problem was in the nerves, not the muscles? I'm not doubting it, I just don't know how it works, I didn't stay in a Holiday Inn Express. I would volunteer in a heart beat for the trial.

I have to have blood work done soon, and I'm hoping I have the same results as Lisa Emrich did with her vitamin D level. Lisa started with her D level at 7.8ng/mL and was able to raise it to 44ng/mL I think in a few months. I don't remember how long I've been taking the D, so don't hold me to how long she has, I'm not a machine! I'm waiting to hear if Lisa has seen any difference since her level came up. I don't see much, if any difference in how I feel, but my level actually dropped at the last blood draw, I must be D resistant.

The parents are here for the weekend, it wasn't food poisoning, the father thinks it's only the flu! I may have to put him in a home if I get the flu from him. The father is playing poker, and the mother is entertaining us with stories of how she tamed the west! I have to put the slides I scanned onto DVD's for the folks, I tried to do it with a flash drive, that didn't do it. The father is totally useless when it comes to the computer, if you asked him to turn one off he would have to use a brick! The mother does great, but lacks the confidence to do a lot of things, so I will DVD them up for the them. It's just good to have them stay with us.

the Canadian cancer society now recommends that everyone takes vitamin D to prevent cancer. There are good summaries on that show why this recommendation came about. Everyone should read this.
