1 year anniversary

Written by on November 18th, 2014 –

It’s November already, wow! How time flies. Here in Edmonton, we’ve been enjoying a beautiful fall, with temperatures still in the double digits (on the plus side). That being said, we know winter is almost here, and I think I speak for all of us when I say we are dreading it!

November is an important month for me, though. This November marks 1 year that I have been relapse free. I really can’t believe it sometimes. Going from relapses every 6-8 weeks to a whole year without a single problem feels amazing. I have a life again, and it’s pretty sweet. Thank you, Gilenya!

The past few months have been a blur of changes. My boyfriend and I bought a house and moved in this past June. Then we brought home 2 black lab/border collie cross puppies shortly after. These two little dogs (Bo and Ruby) have been so good for me and my MS journey, and I just love them so much. They definitely keep me active with daily trips to the dog park where we go for hour long walks – and I can actually keep up. My dream for my pups is to volunteer with them as therapy dogs, specifically with MS patients, although I’d happily take them to nursing homes, children’s hospitals, or wherever they are needed. They’re a little young for it now (they are 6 months old) but we’re working with them every day to get them trained for when they are older.

Do any of you have pets that make a difference in your life and/or your MS journey? Please share in the comments, I’d love to hear about them!
