A Few Days in Moscow

A Few Days in Moscow October 27, 2019

As my regular readers will know, I have recently undergone HSCT (stem cell) treatment for my primary progressive multiple sclerosis that I was diagnosed with last November. This took place over a month in Moscow, back in March and April. Initial indications are that the treatment has been successful, as far as my subjective evaluation of my symptoms is concerned. However, there’s nothing quite like a brain scan. And, like a true scientifically-inclined skeptic, I would very much appreciate a like for like comparison.

Waiting in the departures lounge at Heathrow airport’s ready for a flight to Moscow to get another MRI scan on the same machine that I originally had a scan on before my treatment. I will essentially have a couple of days stuck in a hotel in Moscow getting some work done, so there should be no interruption in services due. But, just in case, that’s where I am at.

Fingers crossed, eh! Although, as we all know, that will make not the blindest bit of difference. Indeed, there is no such thing as good luck, especially since they will be taking a picture of my brain as it already is. Essentially, let’s just say that I hope the universe conspires to give me some good news!
