Well, after many of you that have seen me and wondered why my walking has been less energetic than when teaching or the travels since; here’s my revelation. While in New Zealand last spring, I hurt my foot in a silly accident, but couldn’t get over limping even by summer. Other difficulties were appearing, and increasing medical visits for massages, chiropractic, and neurology led to a ton of blood, MRI, and EMG tests, and finally brought me to Spokane’s Rockwood Neurology Clinic in late November, and a diagnosis of ALS.
My spirit is strong and I feel good! I have great people in my life who continue to inspire me, and I love and appreciate that support that sustains me. I will be in touch periodically through this venue.
