Liver - Shliver!

Thanks to all that commented on my last post. I have thought a lot about what the value of Tysabri is for me. With PML as the only possible side effect, it's a little funny that the choice would be easier: if I die, then too bad, if not, I'll have the best medicine around. On the other hand, liver trouble is somewhat more like the thing I'm trying to avoid: a slow decline in health. It's less decisive, less appealing somehow than a quick clean solution like PML or no MS. On the other hand, liver damage is a pretty common side effect. I don't consider liver damage when I take tylenol. When I consider the alternative, MS symptoms that I KNOW happen, I can clearly see the quality of life difference. On the whole, I am pretty sure that Tysabri is the best solution for me. Thanks for everyone's comments and concern.

Hi, I apologize for the 'form' letter but it is the easiest way to pass word most quickly.

I am thrilled with the response to the MS Blogger project started at my blog, Brass and Ivory. I appreciate all those who took time to post about it on their blogs. I have discovered even more bloggers who have MS, whether they blog about the MS or not. A new listing is available at MS Blogger Community Project Revised.

Secondly, I'm looking for submissions for next week's Carnival of MS Bloggers. Information can be found at the end of each issue archived at Carnival of MS Bloggers. What I'm looking for this week are posts related to creativity. I discovered so many new bloggers who quilt, or knit, or crochet, or write, or photograph, etc. Basically, what do you do to express yourself?

Thank you so much for participating.

P.S. I also apologize for any increased 'spamming' of blog comments due to my growing linklist of bloggers with MS. For that I am sincerely sorry.
