Sorry to hear about your husband's problem. As you know, MS is a clinical diagnosis based on relapsing and remitting symptoms (hence the name multiple). I would suggest that you get a second opinion of the MS diagnosis. If the MRI shows lesions of various ages, it would likely be MS. One should be able to tell is the lesions occurred at various time, a good neuroradiologist will be able to tell you. If the lesions are of the same age, then he could have acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (monosymptomatic demyelinating disease?). I would not be too worried about the anticardiolipin antibody, as the titer is low.
I think the second opinion is a good idea. At least with someone who will spend some time with you.
