Kathie drove to Mayo on our last trip to Mayo in mid-January for day-long appointments.  They want to keep going down this road for now.  We got a great deal of snow while we were gone.  My neighbor asked if we wanted the driveway blown out, which we said for sure.

Went to see Dr. Politi, a neurologist, last week.  He also recommends to not change anything right now.

On 1/20/12 I went for a pentadini treatment which I had a reaction to. It will take at least a month for this to work out of my system.  Have difficulty breathing.

Since that time I go once a week for blood tests, Doctors appointments, and infusion.

Next week we will drive to Mayo again.  Schedule will be very extensive on the first day.  We will finish on the second day and then drive back.
