It's almost Summertime. We celebrated my daughter's eighth birthday and we are making plans. We purchased tickets to fly to Utah next month. We get to see family again, make plans, and I get to return back to California, to my husband and my MS Specialist, and yes, I am equally happy about both. This post will share my my experience receiving the vaccine, as well as my feelings going forward, my hesitations and my hopefulness.

Elezanumab, an investigational remyelination medication to repair damage in Multiple Sclerosis is now available under the FDA Expanded Access Program.
So many have felt the loss of this year. When the Covid-19 lockdown started, everyone seemed to be focused on survival until life went back to normal. However, no back to normal was in sight. Many doctors were predicting that this drastic change may last years: we were holding our breath beneath a mask, until the next week, the next month, the next year.
