Back in the late spring of 2014 I spent a significant amount of time in NYU Langone Hospital. When I was there I was suffering from Quadrophenia. I couldn't move my arms or legs but I was able to move my hips and shoulders and neck. The first chunk of time I was there underwent five days of plasmapheresis. I had my carotid artery opened up so they can run a tube down to my heart and filter out my immune system. It was quite unpleasant. then,I had IVIG infusions which meant I basically laid there and had a day-long injection. Then I went back to rehab because they thought that would stop my immune system from attacking my motor nerves. But it didn't. So I went back there, even more paralyzed and they wound up giving me an off-label non FDA-approved chemotherapy. That honestly sounds a lot more scary than it was. The only negative side effect if you can even call this negative was that all the hair fell off my feet. It didn't grow back. It either works or my immune system was done attacking my motor nerves.
This morning I went live on Facebook and with a lot more emotion basic said what I wrote above. I was kind of wondering why I didn't have any comments but just now I noticed the audio didn't come out at all. But I do remember saying that it's a good thing they put a bike path and a recreation Lane on that new bridge otherwise I would have had to have stopped traffic
