Nearing its conclusion

I was scheduled to have my end of clinical trial Spinal Tap tomorrow, but since the doctor they take us to had them reschedule… I had mine a day early! The return ride ‘home’ i.e. back to Deland could have been responsible for giving me a headache, if one had developed. Gratefully, I was spared. But I have been hypersensitive to odors the last few days, and I held my sweater over my nose, the entire ride, because the perfume or car freshener seemed so offensive … assaulting my nostrils.

But YEA ! The Doctor learned from the last time and today, the Spinal Tap procedure was smoother and speedier…(I only jumped three times.) And it is done! Tomorrow, I’ll have a full day of blood tests, EKG and vital signs and the last dosing of the trial medication. Thursday is called my free day. They just hold us for observation. Friday, after vital signs and breakfast… we should be heading home. 🙂

One of the medics brought in a Wii for us to use for exercising. I am currently the champ. Last game I bowled 199. Far cry from real life. When I tried with the grandchildren a year ago… I think my final score was something like 38! I definitely needed the bumper rails up, to keep out of the gutter.

In anticipation of having other things needing my attention when we return home, I have been typing some posts, scheduling them to come out later in the month. When you go to the index, you see some topics that as yet have not been linked to a post. I am going to focus on addressing those topics. If you have a question or suggestion about something you’d like to see research on, please let me know.

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.
