Progress Report

I am pleased to report, things look like I am accepted for the study. I have the option to drop out at any point in time. They have received records from my primary care and were happy to see the MRI was current enough, another did not need to be scheduled. After reviewing what supplements I have been taking, I was asked to discontinue all herbals for the duration.

We return for a follow up interview and a thorough physical this coming Monday… which is anticipated to take around 3 1/2 hours. At that time, I anticipate being able to tour the 27 bed facility and ask all my questions, prior to officially signing on for the clinical trial.

All study participants are provided scrubs, so packing for me will be light. John will be provided sleeping accommodations and meals, but will also be free to leave to attend the temple, church, or whatever he chooses.

Any questions you think I should be sure to ask?

In May of 2018, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. After researching, I believe the symptoms began to manifest themselves years prior to last year. The purpose for my blog is to share what I have learned (with an index) to save others time as they seek for answers about, symptoms, therapies [and alternative things to try], tools I use, Parkinsonisms, recipes, strategies, clinical studies, words of encouragement or just enjoy the photos or humor.
