Hawaii...

last month we had the opportunity to tag along with some friends to Kona, Hawaii for  a week. It seemed like the perfect way to celebrate the end of my quarantine. Our fly out day was exactly one week after I was cleared to travel. So as we planned the trip I figured this new medication would "kick in" by the time we made it to Hawaii. Unfortunately, that was not the case. The entire vacation was spent in the wheelchair.

I hate having my picture taken in the chair. I almost always find a way to stand up for a "normal" picture. Luckily I have an amazing family and friends that make sure I am taken care of. 
Long story short... Hawaii was beautiful & a wonderful way to break my quarantine. Even though I was hoping for some miracle healing power before we left I am starting to see improvements. I'm not running up and down the street but very small things like buttoning Sawyer's shirt is giving me hope! You have no idea how gratifying that felt! In the mean time I must remind my self that patients is a virtue and that while this treatment didn't provide me instant health, It did what it was meant to do (knock out my immune system). No matter how minor the improvements might be I believe a positive outlook is what is going to make the difference.
