In 2004 my wife was diagnosed with MS. From 2004 until 2009 she battled numerous relapses that required heavy doses of steroids which left her with osteoporosis. Fortunately in 2009 the Dr's replaced her medication which has kept her relapse free to date. But the kicker is that studies have shown the extended use of this drug can lead to brain infections. So she is going on an experimental drug that was recently approved. She will start these meds in about a month if we can get insurance to cover the $35,000/yr price tag. We feel that it will probably be ok'd by insurance as her previous medication was $4,500/mo. But the thing we are dealing with right now is 2 weeks ago her right ankle broke due to her weakened bones. Well this morning when she went to get out of bed she could not put any weight on her left foot. Took her to urgent care at the Mayo Clinic and found that she now has a broken bone in her left foot. Good news is, no more crutches, now she has a wheel chair. She has been tough through all of this but today she shed a few tears of frustration. I am sure the good Lord has a reason for this that we do not know.
