Monday, Monday

Well a lousy workout and weather today but a/ I stuck the bike trainer out for 42 minutes no matter how lousy it felt so I get points….right??!!
and b/ there was literally about a 40 second clearing this morning when you could see the Olympic mountain range so catching that improved the rest of this socked-in day immensely 😉

Other good things that happened despite it being Monday –

Who would believe it – the FDA finally thought the benefits of a drug should outweigh it’s “serious and potentially fatal safety issues” – woohoo!! 😉
“FDA has taken the position that Genzyme has not submitted evidence from adequate and well-controlled studies that demonstrate the benefits of Lemtrada outweigh its serious adverse effects,”
FDA staff determined in a November report that Lemtrada has “serious and potentially fatal safety issues” including risk of cancer and autoimmune and thyroid diseases. – (Bloomberg)

I especially liked this decision because this drug had been pulled off the market for it’s off-label use for MS so that they could put it back on at a much higher price later.

And last but certainly not least, my last Monday Happy Hour of 2013 with the inimitable Mr. Phil and his very fun mistress started my week off on an excellent note 😉

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
