The Gilenya-process

The wheels have started turning already.  Thanks to a very organized and efficient nurse, all of my preliminary tests have been scheduled for right when we get back from holiday, and all on the SAME day!  That is an amazing feat in itself.

August 14th begins my new Gilenya journey.

And before the end of August I'll have my day-long hospital stay for first-dose monitoring.

Despite my anxiousness over starting a drug that has scarier potential side effects, I am listening to my Neurologist, believing the research I have done, and feel comfortable with this decision.  I need to be on this medication in order to slow down the process of permanent disability.

And I am positively giddy over losing the daily injections!
