Updates and Plans For MG Awareness Month

It's been a long day. A few GREAT things first:

My treatment went amazingly well yesterday. It was the FIRST time in hundreds of treatments that I didn't even feel the needles. Not even a little. It was AWESOME!!

Secondly, my father (71, not in great health, has emphysema, diabetes and won't quit smoking) soared through knee surgery with flying colors. He's feeling better than he was before surgery.

Now, for a couple things I'm doing for June, which is National Myasthenia Gravis Awareness Month. I am bombarding Associated Content (www.associatedcontent.com) with articles about MG. I'm going through my personal story as well. I would love for you to check it out...and view my articles! Just search for Kerri Sweeris on that website.

Secondly, my husband works for the city we live by. He told me to contact the City Manager to ask him about receiving a proclamation regarding June being National MG Awareness Month at a City Council meeting in June. This would be covered by the media, so that would be awesome!

I'll keep you posted!
