Where I Have Been

Hello everyone, it has been a VERY long time since I have posted.

Many have seen me on Facebook.  I am sorry I have not been visiting your blogs.

My MS has been our priority.  Many of you may remember me speaking about taking a new drug called Tecfidera.  Long story short that drug did not work for me.

I began getting very bad spasms throughout my torso.  It made  it impossible for me to stand f  more than a 30 seconds.

Imagine, you had a corset and someone kept making it tighter and tighter?  That is the best analogy.  

Instead of focusing on the negative let’s move to   the positive.  I’m now on a new drug Ocrevus and I get an infusion every six months at the doctor’s office in NYC.  This new drug is known as “The Game changer”.

GAME CHANGER is correct.  I am getting the ability to do things that I haven’t been able to do in years.  Small and large but for us no matter how small they are all HUGE.

My personality is back to me, chatty, happy and excited more than ever.

I go for my second infusion November 16th and I have never been so excited about getting medicine in my life.

John has his wife back.

To let you see a little of how my life has improved.  This is what I have been up to for the past few months.

This is just some and the beginning.  Have you figure it out yet?

Yes, I am opening an Etsy Shop:

Signs And Pots by Cindy

The pots aren’t completely finished yet and I am working on signs everyday.  I am finishing Christmas tags. 

Signs are done in various styles, reverse transferring images and stencils done with plaster to make them raised.  I have been doing the plaster techniques for years.

More are listed in the shop.

While John and I were having a garage sale we were showing some of our signs to get feed back and a nice girl who came knows a gentleman in town.  He owns a shop White Birch Candle.  She has worked with him before.

She spoke to him and I will be speaking to him today about selling signs in his shop.

I am so excited and thrilled to be doing this work.

Love and Hugs to my John, who  has been there through this for 28 years and has never wavered.
