This is the Scottish Highlands.  I like this picture because I am looking forward into the unknown.  It's always important to look forward.  Come on Mexico!

Welcome to my Caring Bridge!  Never in a million years did I think I would have one of these.  I am so much more comfortable taking care of others than asking for help.  Unfortunately my life changed a little over a year ago and here I am.  
On April 1st, my niece Stacey and I are flying to Mexico.  We will be going to Puebla which is 2 hours south of Mexico City.  Here I will be receiving a treatment called HSCT (Hematopoietic Stem Cell Therapy) for the Multiple Sclerosis that has impacted my life in so many ways.  My physical health has declined greatly since being diagnosed in August of 2019.  I have researched this for over a year and find that is my only HOPE.  
I want to get the word out there to anyone who suffers from MS that there is hope.  Research and read.  Don't just listen to your doctor and let them make your life choices.  
Second, I wanted to do this Caring Bridge because in December my family started a Go Fund Me account and it has raised approximately $46,000.  Unbelievable!   I am overwhelmed by their geniorsity and want to show them the process.  I want to thank them and I want them to know I appreciate every dollar.  
I want to get back to the classroom mid-August to where I belong.  
So follow my journey.  I have put my niece Stacey in charge of the actually documentation once the process starts.  I am not sure how I will be feeling (two rounds of chemo and a port) so stay tuned to pictures and the story through her eyes.  
Stacey- I love you for going through this journey with me.  I am so looking forward to spending this time with you and ringing my call button!  HA!  Stacey is an R.N. so I will be in great hands.  
Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts.
