I left that appointment with a prescription for L-Dopa. I never anticipated that the medication would work and wasn't going to have it filled. My husband reminded me that I had nothing to lose and urged me to take the first dose as soon as we got home.
About 2 hours later, I felt stronger than I had in months, if not years. Yet, I still didn't believe that my life was about to change. I have never been so happy to be so wrong!!!
Good Friday and Easter will never be the same for me. It is the time that I focus my attention on all that God has given me: caring parents, supportive brothers, fun children, etc. I just never thought that mobility would be added to that list.
