I haven’t written much lately because the past three weeks have been emotionally rough for me. My ALS doctor prescribed something to help me with my depression and anxiety so hopefully it will help.
Every day we are all challenged to adapt, accept or reject changes in our lives but some of the changes are difficult. Losing my voice has been really hard on me and now my legs are almost useless. ALS has taken over my body leaving me helpless. Over the past twelve months I have lost twenty-three pounds which puts me at 107. My respiratory system has declined significantly as well, which qualifies me for hospice. We decided to hold off on hospice for a while not because we are in denial but just because we can. When the time comes we will welcome hospice and the great ministry they offer into our home and our lives.
I’m feeling great today. The sky is blue and the birds are singing something beautiful outside my window. I hope you find beauty in your life today. And may God bless you, too.
