I honestly don't even know how long it's been since I last posted here, Three years? Five years? Longer? I kind of transitioned to Facebook and just slowly dropped away from this place that was my home for so long, Good too see it's still active. If anyone worked like to send me a friend request on Facebook, search for Brad Morgan. In your friend twist, include your screen name here at KA so I recognize you.
I am doing reasonably well. Still living in my own in my home of 25 years, but that was touch and go earlier this year due to problems with congestive heart failure and other issues. Looked bad, but I kicked AS one more time and now I'm doing ok, I stopped driving in 2017 and at that time the great people at the University of Michigan hospital outfitted me with any amazing wheelchair that I use when I leave the house, still use a walker in the house. I got a great wheelchair van at the same time, and my wonderful friends and family drive me all over. For those of you here who met my mom, she passed away the day after Christmas in 2016 from bile duct cancer, the first time she was ever really sick in her life.
I've been on remicade for more than 10 years, asked it continues to help immensely. That said, the terrible damage done by AS can never be reversed, and walking even with my Walker is getting harder. I'll keep it up as long as I can, Hope everyone here is kicking AS the best way they know how.
