I was discharged from the hospital today. This has been my shortest hospital stay 16 days due to a relapse so far and I hope that any future relapses will be shorter or not happen at all.
I called my neuro's office to get a f/u appointment from this relapse. There were no appointments for 3 weeks and I told them to put me on the cancellation list in case that would work better. The nurse said she found my MRI reports in the system and then said she'll talk to the doctor. One hour later she called me back and said if I could come in tomorrow an walla, I have an appointment after all.
I am happy that we will have the conversation about the MRI results, tomorrow instead of in 3 weeks. It has been suggested to me by the attending neuro that copaxone will be discontinued and we'd need to move on the interferons so that will likely be discussed. I'm not sure I'm ready to make a decision yet on which one.
So, I am back home and back to my real life. My body is weak, wobbly, and frankly, I am scared to do much walking being here by myself. Al will be here tomorrow and that couldn't have come at a better time. I believe that is the sole reason that I am sitting at home now and not still in the rehab unit. Thanks Al for your timing.
I'll update how the appointment goes tomorrow.
