My lovely sister Tracy developed MS in the last year of her life and it was devastating, seeing the awful changes it brought about in her body. Thankfully, her spirit was strong and the family rallied around and I like to think we made life bearable for her. Indeed, she was starting to fight back, getting more and more like her old self when, sadly, she passed away in November 2003.
(this is my 200th post. It makes sense to dedicate it to my sister. RIP, TJ)
