Here is a link to some of the comments that a couple of Dr.'s who have really looked at his work have posted on his original paper. This is good stuff. I don't understand all the terminology, but I understand a great deal of it. I'll leave it to some eggheads to molecularly figure all of this out. However, you can feel that these guys can't debunk it either, but rather both come to the conclusion that this should be rigorously investigated. The thing I will always come back to since I don't understand it all is that the lesions seem to be right in line with the occlusions. Could the lesions be caused by this? I think the Dr.'s both say "maybe". So it's more heartening than disheartening because you should see Dr.'s comments when a goofy theory is posted. It's like a puppy in a shark tank. At any rate, here is the link for some "light" reading! I take off to go to my mom's today in Columbus and will be leaving tomorrow. I'm nervous, but not about the surgery. I'm nervous whether or not this will work or not. I think we all are. But when your choices suck so bad (the current shitty ass drugs), you will try anything when facing full on disability. Wish me luck and pray if that's your thing, but pray for all of us, this disease really sucks for me, but I know of about 400,000 other Americans who are just as anxious to see this work as I am. I'm sorry to have made this blog on such a shitty program that makes it hard to post comments. I just clicked the first "blog maker" that came up on Google. I'm also sorry I'm swearing so much this morning. I'm trying to work on that, but all the wonderful comments you have all sent me through my email and all the support is overwhelming. That coupled with the anxiousness about this being so close has 8 years of built up anger, sadness and frustration right under the surface has me very emotional this am. Happy trails to me! Here's the link:
God I hope this works.
