At the walk, I was interviewed by CTV News about Chris' experience (they had read our blog!). Now some people claim they saw me getting emotional, but I still stand by the fact that I was cool and calm.

While the walk was such a great day, Chris did have some difficulty walking the 5 km. Chris finds that especially in the cold his muscles in his left leg seem to contract and it puts a lot of pressure on his hip. For the last 1 km Chris was definitely in a lot of discomfort, but he pushed through and finished the walk. Chris has been doing so well since the procedure, we sometimes forget that it is not an instant fix.
Finally, we have received Chris' schedule for the MS Research Clinic. Chris will be spending the morning at the clinic on June 13 (exactly 6 months following his transplant). He will also be getting an MRI on June 17. This mean we will have a much better idea on how this procedure has affected his MS.
