Tysabri day but for how long?

Last week when I was at my new neuro's office I was asked if I wanted to become a part of a research study and was tested for the JC Virus.
I'm pretty sure it will come back positive as I have had funky blood test results my whole life.

Anyway, because I have had about 47 tysabri infusions my chance of PML is greater if I test positive.

It will take 4 to 6 weeks to get the results so in the meantime  I will continue with my infusions.
today was my tysabri day and I have to admit I always feel better after my fix.

I'll keep you posted on the results. This will be a crazy week. Thank you all for your encouraging words on facebook. 
I'll get thru it.Of course it is much better to know you ladies are all behind me.
