Spinraza II

The second loading dose of Spinraza is in the rearview mirror and the third dose is in front of me.

It went smoothly again. I don’t know that I will ever think of transforaminal lumbar punctures as ROUTINE, but I might be able to get comfortable with them. It’s a good thing… Spinraza isn’t a magic bullet. It’s not “one and done.” It’s a little bit more like insulin is to the diabetic.

I can live with that!

I do think I am seeing benefits. Granted, I’m not benchpressing anything yet. I have not been climbing ladders or stairs.

Things are much more subtle. I had WAY more than 50 years of muscle disintegration. It’s a bit much to expect instant superhero.

My breathing is better. I think my thumbs have fractionally more strength. It’s possible that my digestive tract is becoming more manageable.

All wins, in my book!
