Tori removal; MRI results

Now that the abscess is under control, the oral surgeon says BR's tori have to go. Day surgery is scheduled for Friday morning.

We also got the results from BR's latest MRI. Despite clinical progression, the MRIs show that the number and size of lesions on the brain are stable. This wasn't unexpected, as studies indicate that the later stages of MS are marked by spinal cord atrophy, and not brain lesion activity. We meet with the neurologist on Thursday to discuss next steps.
