The Report

I haven’t written in awhile.  But I’ve been reading y’alls journals.  (I’m a southern girl).  Been keeping up. My husband got a diagnosis of Parkinson’s Disease from the neurologist.  About a week ago.  First I was in denial.  Then I faced the fact that he may have it.  His left hand shakes all the time, and his balance is poor.  He is 67 years old.  I’m 65 but look and feel younger by far, thank God.  He was shaken by the report.  He had a lot of questions.  I looked it up on the internet.  The doctor prescribed pills for his dopamine level and B12 vitamins.  We ordered some potent nutritional supplements, too.   We are trusting God to restore his health.  If he can lose some weight and get some exercise, it may help a lot.  A journal is a place to be honest, even when it hurts:  I do wonder if he will eventually need more care than I can give.  He has asked about going in a nursing home at some point.  Hoping he won’t have to.  Like I said, we are seeking God for healing, and believing to receive it.  We are married 46 years this month, and are totally in love.  I want him to be well, so much!  I am having to drive because he has diabetic neuropathy and can’t feel his feet.  That makes him have to walk very slowly and carefully.  He’s had a few falls.  One doctor told him to always use a walker, but you know how men are—-not going to do it!  He sometimes uses a cane.  Whatever happens, we will still trust our God because He is all good and works all things together for good.  It’s going to be all right.  There’s a song that says, “I will praise Him in the storm.”  I guess that means now, huh?
