    Ocrevus. Similar to Rituxan, but worse side effect profile. Nice thread about it if you want t read up on it

    I am sorry about your sister. Thanks for starting the April thread.

    Cool

    Another sleepless night. But it's not nights in a row....I don't think. It seems to happen pretty often. But I'll get a nap this afternoon....I do think.

    Let's see, today, then tomorrow, then it's PAYDAY!

    After I do my running around on that blessed day, I'm going to make a purchase online through Amazon. I love shopping with them for everything but groceries, and think I could even do that, but I like meeting the folks at Food Lion. Some even know me by name.

    My brother may call today, and I have some questions for him about Bluetooth. Gizmos he knows all about.

    Have a great day all!

    Howie, check with your bank. I had a great surprise today. Social Security paid early.

    Peg, I'm sorry about your sister. I hope she can be comfortable in spite of what she's been going through.

    BBS is right. There's a thread here about the new MS drug, Ocrevus (ocreluzumab). It Is for RRMS and even PPMS.

    It's nice for everyone here that you start a new thread every month. Many thanks!

    Cool

    Agate, you are my hero. I had money in my account, and to the store I went. I forgot it's the weekend, so it was pretty crowded anyway, but I got enough to get me through the weekend. Maybe I'll get my bills ready, and mail them Monday.

    Thanks Agate.

    So Monday I go to the hospital for another round of botox to the bladder shots. This has to be done about every 6 months...and April here is 6 months. I love it - the botox really works wells, very few bladder spasms, no incontinence. Spasms started to show up about a week ago, so this round is timely! :) It's a "day surgery": I show up at 8:30, it takes about 1-1/2 hours for preparation (they put you to sleep), they do the shots -- about 20 minutes -- then an hour in "recovery", and then they send you home. So I should be home by lunch. Or maybe I can talk Tom Cat into lunch out. Anyway..... fun day. :)

    Feeling energetic today: Baked a pork roast for dinner (noon meal), then a cheesecake, AND a batch of fudge. Loaded up the dishwasher...now wasting time on the computer.

    Got my taxes done...owe a bunch of money this year, first time in several years. I had to draw some money out of our savings to pay property tax earlier; I'm sure that's why we now owe for taxes (money drawn out of the retirement fund counts as "income". ) I just LOVE paying money to the military-industrial complex....otherwise known as Uncle Sam....
    ...I am not a doctor nor medical professional, and don't pretend to be one, here... :o

    Peg, thanks for starting us off. Hope your Sister does well in the future. My oldest brother has been in the hospital so many times I have lost count. I guess as we grow older that is how it is with our siblings. I know you are gearing up for the summer farm time. Have fun.

    Cat, most of the money I have in savings now is taxable. Also, what I get from dear departed husband's retirement is taxable. So anyway more of my income is taxable than non-taxable because this makes more of my Social Security taxable. I am sure you found that to be true. I try not to complain because compared to many I do have a little something. I just try not to use more of it than I can help.

    I wish I could take a new drug that helped me feel better. I am sure their are quite a few on here who feel that way.

    Neighbor stopped by today with the book for this month's book club. The title is "Light Between the Oceans". Anyone read it?
