Woke up at 4 AM with a vision:
“There was a man building a Sandcastle right by the waves during low tide. Even though the castle was beautiful, every time the tide started shifting it would destroy the castle.”
The same way was with my body. My body was trying to build Myelin sheath around the nerves every day, but the MS would come and destroy it. This is why I was not recovering. Now the MS is gone, my body will now have the chance to finally recover!
I wasn’t sure how the day was going to start because last time I saw the doctor my white blood count was at 3700. Got to see Dr. Ruiz himself today, and he told me that my count was up to 40000! He proceeded to tell me that I could get the Rituximap infusion, and after that I could be dismissed.
Dr. Ruiz, creator of the HSCT program in Puebla, Mexico.
I got the infusion for 3 hours, and then we all proceeded to celebrate the end of our month-long treatment, and the beginning of our new
life. Even though I live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I decided to mark the map on Cali, Colombia, my hometown. I felt like putting the first pin in Colombia.
Next week begins the recovery journey. I will be starting physical therapy and Pilates to recover my walk!
I want to thank with lots of love in my heart my girlfriend, Catalina, my mom, Myriam, and my stepdad Michael, for coming with me on this journey, and being the rocks on which I stand. Thank you to the three of you from the bottom of my heart!
Thank you, my faithful followers for coming with me on this journey. I will keep updating the blog with progress reports frequently.
