Such a little thing, that we take for granted, and don’t even notice … when you walk normally, your arms swing quite naturally at your sides, without any thought on your part. Well, that’s not the case for someone with Parkinson’s, and it hasn’t been that way for me, either. In fact, I have tried to consciously do it, and I couldn’t remember how to coordinate it at all.
Daddy has a long hall at his house, and I noticed for the first time this morning when I walked down it that my arms were swinging again, quite naturally. This is quite an accomplishment, and is sure evidence that the Sinemet is working.
I go to the Neurologist tomorrow, and I’m very excited about seeing him. I’m hoping for a definite diagnosis this time, so I can get down to the business of dealing with handling the meds and my GERD. I’m still having a lot of trouble with that, but I have the Gastroenterologist appointment Friday. It seems to all be coming together.
I’m praying for some definite answers. I realize that Parkinson’s is not something anyone would want to have, but knowing is better than not knowing, any day, IMVHO!
