Today is the start of a new life for me. I am happy to be able to sit here and type on my iPad right now without my fingers shaking and making it difficult to type without creating typo errors over and over again. I have been blessed with great doctors who has helped me get to where I am today. Of course, I am very thankful for my loving family who has supported me in my decisions to have the DBS surgery. I am also blessed with such great family and friends who have reached out along the way to encourage me and pray for me. Thank you all who have been there for me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
She still has a couple of sessions to go yet as they only turned on the device and set the amps for each of the eight electrodes. They will be fine tuning over the next month by adjusting the frequency and pulse rates. It's great to see her walking, getting up out of her seat and moving around normally. It will be interesting to see Josh's reaction when he comes home this weekend since he hasn't seen his mom since before the first surgery. It's been a great joy to watch everyone's reaction of amazement when they see her. All of our friends here in Ohio have never known Karen before she had Parkinson's. They are now getting to know my best friend and they have been amazed.
Ty continues to do very well. He is out right now with friends and enjoying life as any 22 year-old should. We are all enjoying life. I have long dreamed of a day when I could have my son and my wife back. Today I am living the dream. It is the most heart warming, thankful and blessed feeling I've ever encountered. I owe it all to my most faithful and trustworthy friend - Jesus. He has never failed us. He has always remained faithful. Even when I failed to be faithful, He has always been there. He has always picked me up when I was down. He has always comforted me when I was hurting. He has always loved me when I was broken. Words cannot express to you the awesome wonder of The One True God. He is mine and I am His. He has given me the desires of my heart. I know some of you are wondering why He hasn't given you the desires of your heart. You've lost that special person He brought into your life and now they are gone. Don't give up. Don't lose hope. The hardest time in waiting on God is the last half-hour. Keep the faith. You will be rejoined with your loved one but in His time. In His purpose. In His way. Trust in Him. Hope in Him. Above all, live in Him.
Keepin' the Faith,
