Thankful for Mobility

Yesterday morning, I met with the dean of social sciences at a local college. I needed to review several different items, prior to teaching Abnormal Psychology next week.

The dean’s office was on the third floor of this college. I’m happy to say that I was able to walk three flights of stairs! This is no small accomplishment for a woman who was diagnosed with MS twenty-six years ago.

It’s also remarkable because I experienced no shortness of breath. It appears that my Aubagio prescription, taken for the management of my relapsing-remitting MS, is also suppressing the activity of my highly recurrent subglottic stenosis.

Later yesterday, my family and I went to the fair. I pushed my nearly ninety-year-old mother, in a wheelchair. I’m so thankful that I was able to walk for a considerable distance throughout the fair, especially given the warm weather.

After you’ve experienced periods of total inability to walk, these experiences are certainly sweet victories.
