Last Friday I had an appointment with Dr. Wolf at UCSF in San Francisco. Because the Bay Bridge was out of commission, we went farther north and took the Richmond Bridge on Thursday night. The meeting with Dr. Wolf was very encouraging. He assured me that the neuropathy would go away within a year. He recommended I take L-Carnitine and Alpha Lipoic Acid to help the neuropathy. He also noted that my immunoglobulin-G is low. That is the blood cell that fights off illnesses. I will have IV-IG given to me at least monthly here in Fresno. That should give me some resistance to colds and such until my own defenses can take over. In all, everything was good news.
On Sunday I went to church again. It is so good to worship God with my church family. I am so thankful that I feel better. I pray that I stay healthy as I continue to grow stronger.
