  •  My best friend's mother (3+ / 0-)

    was diagnosed with MS a couple of years before she had a baby.  She did manage to get pregnant when the docs told her it just wasn't going to happen (I think there was a miscarriage before my friend was born).  She continued to work for 20 years or so after the diagnosis, and volunteered counselling AIDS patients through the early 80s.  Her husband cared for her for the rest of his life (he died this past spring) as needed, and they clearly loved each other for all that time.  My friend and I turn 50 next year, and her mother is still around and, although she is not mobile any more, she danced at her daughter's wedding and celebrated a 50th anniversary with her husband.  May you have a glorious 50th anniversary as well.
