Where does time go?

Hi guys,
I am so naughty not updating this for a while. I don't know where the time goes.....actually I do. She is called Ava and is the biggest time waster I know! Can you believe she is 20 weeks old today? The picture above is of her meeting our friend's little boy Joshua for the first time. He is 3 weeks younger than her. They were sooooo cute together. We went to see them at the weekend and just stayed in, watched the rugby and had a takeaway with a glass of vino. It was a welcome change of scenery for me.

My new car is due to be here at the end of March. I have to have a driving assessment in a couple of weeks to see which would be the best adaptations to the car for me. I'm a little scared as I haven't driven since August last year. I'm sure it will be fine though. I have also ordered myself a scooter. These 4 walls are finally driving me insane, it is like groundhog day every day. At least with a scooter I can strap Ava to me and go for a bit of a cruise ha ha!! Nathan has just bought a new car (a mondeo) so it has enough room for me, Ava and all our bits and bobs.

I had my MRI scan on Wednesday, I forgot how loud and boring they are. At least it's done now. I spoke to my MS nurse yesterday because we'd talked about steroids after the scan. My neurologist is going to see me next Tues instead of the 24th to discuss the options. I am hoping he will have the scan results so if I'm eligible for Tysabri we can get cracking with it.

That's all for now,

First time I saw your blog,
I'm "Mark and MS". The kids are really cute together. I'm am sure driving will be Ok in a few trips, it will be a statement of "Why did I wait so long to escape from here?" Best of luck! Will be watching your future posts.

Hi Emma,

I found your blog a few weeks ago, when I was actually checking google for my own blog (Baby, MS and Me http://www.mstrust.org.uk/interactive/babymsme/) and yours showed up, so I have been back reading your posts. Your little girl is so cute! I am expecting my first one next month, so is very nervous!

Hope you get your scan results and have a good meeting with your neuro.

Take Care!

Emma, I found your blog through Google Alert on driving with medical conditions. Thank you so much for sharing.

I posted a link to it on our company's page as we deal with driving rehabilitation and assessment via a driving simulator (just not in the UK yet).
