As I've upgraded, I thought I'd go the whole hog and change the template and blog title as well. Hope you all can find me! I tried to change the colours as well to something more me, but Beta blogger wouldn't accept the changes, so I'm stuck with these colours until I can work it out.
I had a lovely lunch and get together yesterday with my friend. I don't know if you remember, but two or three months ago I posted about a friend of ours who has Parkinson's disease. Well, he had a procedure done a couple of weeks ago that has made a difference to the exaggerated involuntary movements he had. The procedure is called deep brain stimulation and it sounds absolutely horrifying because it has to be done with just local anaesthetic and sedation. I won't go into the details because it is just to awful to imagine. Suffice to say, one would need a high pain threshold and a lot of courage and desperation to go through with it.
Anyway, it has made a wonderful difference to the tremors and involuntary movements B was getting. Unfortunately, it's not doing anything for his mobility and he is still finding it difficult to get around and so in that respect, nothing has changed. However, with the discoveries that are being made all the time, something may come up to help him. I sincerely hope so.
I have been very slothful today so haven't a lot to post. You would be bored to tears if I accounted all the minutiae of the day so, on that note, I shall finish. Enjoy what's left of the weekend.
PS: For some reason or other, Blogger doesn't like paragraphs today so the whole post looks pretty messy. Grrrrrr!
