Well I just can't believe it! My Mom called me last night and said that my Dad had been misdiagnosed for 15 yrs. He does not have Lupus or Diabetes. That is correct he doesn't have either one!! I am happy for him that he doesn't have either one but I am so mad that his Dr. told him he did have those 2 things. He has Multiple Spinal Stenosis with severe Neuropathy. He will be seeing a specialist in NYC as soon as he can get an appointment. He will be having extensive PT also. Now we just have to wait and see what the specialist in NYC says. Atleast we know that he has a long journey, but it isn't life threatening but it is crippling. What a shame he wasn't diagnosed from the beginning because then he wouldn't be in the shape he is in now.
FYI: My Dad's original Dr. died 2 yrs. ago from a massive heart attack at the age of 52, so he can't even tell him what is going on and that his other patients should be checked out.
Thanks everyone for all your cares, concerns, thought and prayers. Keep them coming!! I'm sure he will need it! HUGS to all of you!!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
