Hello everyone!

Thank you all very much for your supportive and loving comments! It is a joy for me to read and be reminded of all those that have so generously supported and encouraged me, and have made it possible for me to be where I am now.

Right mow I have just started a 4ml stem-cell dose with additional hydration through an IV drip (4ml is a “higher” dose that is administered maybe every week or so depending on my other procedures). This will be followed by another IV filled with a multivitamin.

I am very pleased to report that since my arrival I have experienced reduced daily back pain (almost none on a “regular day” now), levels of energy comparable to what I had at home but without needing adderall, which is huge for me (adderall was the only way I was able to get up everyday and get myself dressed and to take one class), as well a some increased muscle tone, thanks to the rigorous physio therapy routine (11 times per week!).

While I am still very limited in endurance, number of wakeful hours, ability to proccess new information throuought the day, and other physical limitations, the slow changes I have experienced so far give me great excitement and hopeful thoughts of one day being an independent adult man (though not independent of the Lord my God), according to His glory.

Suffice it to say, I am in great spirits this Saturday! I am grateful to the Lord for his many blessings, and to the the people who have given their love and their resources to make my treatment and healing possible, and to those who continue in their love, compassion, kindness, support, and generosity to make healing a reality for Dannie also!

With love, excitement, and gratitude,

Ari

  3. You are a precious, young man and child of God! It is so encouraging to read your blog and follow your progress. You and your sister are in my thoughts and prayers! Renee’ K.

  4. I’m so glad to hear of your progress and that you’ve been sent out to the gym!!! Continue to enjoy the precious moments in India.

  5. Dear Ari,

    I just read the artical about you and your sister, then watched your video. I’m so happy that you’re able to get the help you wanted. I hope your sister will be able to do the same soon. I will be praying for both of you to have a complete recovery from this terrible disease. I too, have chronic Lyme disease. I’m 54 yrs old and went from one Dr. to another until I was diagnosed last year. My Dr. told me that I was the most infected patient she has seen, since she began treating patients for Lyme, 13 yrs. ago. I have some nerve damage and trouble with my memory. I’m still going through treatment to get my bacteria level down. I know how hard it is to find a Lyme Dr. and I’m so thankful for mine. I will be watching your blogs and looking forward to when you and your sister have fully recovered from Lyme. I know the battle, as well as anyone else with this disease. Your body is at war, so, please continue to fight and never give up. I’m very interested is this type of treatment, because I want to feel normal again too. This is the first time I’ve heard about stem cell treatment. Please, keep blogging and keep us informed. God bless you, your sister and your Mother for enduring so much, over the years. My heart goes out to your family.

    Love, Karen
    (Chronic Lyme patient)

  6. After meeting you I realized you are an awesome person. And your positive attitude towards life makes you very special. Keep this attitude alive forever.
