Time for an update!

Hello Again!

It is Wednesday just before noon as I write this, laying down, having just had my third caudal stem-cell injection/procedure.  As with each procedure and every stem-cell dose, I am filled with gratitude and excitement for the fact that I am here, on the other side of the world getting this amazing treatment, and also for what this will mean for the rest of my life as I become able to function more, take on adult responsibilities, and live life!

At the direction of Dr. Geeta, I have joined a local gym with the intention of working with some weights in order that I “change my body type” and develop muscle.  While I feel a bit out of place in the weight section of the gym, I am eager to comply with every aspect of my treatment plan, and to do all in my power to make this trip the most effective.  With a busy morning schedule and given that my longest break before evening is between noon and 2pm (physio is at 11am and 2pm) and coincides with lunch (usually arrives around 1pm), I plan to make time for the gym in the evenings – maybe every other day or so.

I will upload some pictures later in the day.



  1. A very busy schedule these days Ari:) The gym will be something different and might just be enjoyable. Those stem cells want every opportunity. You are such a good patient of Dr. Geeta Schroff’s:)
    Hugs, Love and Prayers for you,


  2. So good to hear from you and learn of the small but definite changes you are experiencing! Getting better is hard work! We continue to send prayers, good thoughts, positive sensations, and hugs across the water to you. God has blessed you! Keep those updates coming!
