June 12th, 2006- 3 outta 5 ain't bad!

This weekend I regained feeling in three of my five fingers on my right hand. I took full advantage of the knitting situation sans ordering my wool (no internet, sniff sniff) and knitting up a new project. My brain must have been vacationing while my new fingers were walking because I used the wrong damn needles. Three quarters through my felted clutch (purse for the male readers) I figured this out! Had I felted this thing in the washer I would have had a Barbie purse! Ode to MS! I am officially going crazy and loving it! One ripped out clutch (purse again for you male readers) and one new clutchy/pursey/thingy later on new needles and voila - near perfection. I will not be beaten by a two letter pain in the ass [insert meniacal smile here!]

I have found the perfect gift for me! At, the coolest yarn store ever!, you can give gift certificates to my account (michababy1@ by clicking HERE. You simply register yourself, enter my email, and I than I get to think you are indeed the coolest person I know and knit until my fingers fall off or I lose feeling again in the 3 I just got back! How cool is that? There is a god! Sorry, but $2.25 hanks of wool make me crazy excited! DAD, ARE YOU READING THIS??? ANYONE READING?? So nice to know other people can fuel addictions via the internet that are not illegal. Altogether now..........AHH, that's nice.

Hi Michelle, I post on MS World too! as (msladyinca)..small world, MS world..sounds like a song from Disneyland, eh? teehee.....I notice you mentioned in your blog, any chance that has something to do with the company Elan and the MS drug Tysabri?

Let me introduce myself to everyone...Hi all, I was a patient that testified via videotape at the FDA AC hearing on 3/8/06 to try and get Tysabri back to those of us that need it. I've been living with MS for 30+ years and for 29 of those years, I was RRMS and was starting to have disabling relapses. I had my one and only infusion of Tysabri in 2/05...WOW, what a difference it made in my increasing disabilities! Tysabri stopped my attacks, and improved my symptoms so much I went from a walker to a cane with no limp within 2 weeks of my infusion! Then after the drug was pulled on 3/1...I was ok until 6/5/05 and then I had my worst relapse/attack ever which left me w/c bound. But I know Tysabri can help me may take longer to show improvements again, but Tysabri gave me hope, and I have faith in it. If anyone would like to correspond with me about MS, Tysabri, or the small risk of PML, you can reach me at LGLBGL2003@AOL.COM. You can also check out my homepage at and I'm in the process of creating my own blog to share ideas and comments. Be well, all my very best to everyone who read this. Lauren :)
