my heart’s been filled with some heavy stuff these past few weeks!
truthfully, more than i want to mention.
but the two list toppers are:
we had to put our sweet dog Parker of 13 years down.
it was, and still is- heartbreaking.
and the other- is that my dear friend Tammy left for Russia.
she was diagnosed with PPMS (primary progressive MS) in 2010.
since her diagnosis, she’s already been experiencing glimpses of the many unpleasantries PPMS has to offer:
trouble walking, bladder control, strength, etc.
she’s only 40, two kids & a husband. she’s a giver. always helping everyone. constantly on the move.
she’s been led to apply for the clinical trials – HSCT (Hematopoietic Stem Cell Therapy), in hopes of being cured.
the one she’s accepted is in Moscow, Russia and she is on her way there now.
she’ll be in the hospital for 4 1/2 weeks.
please. please– keep her in your prayers.
this is a very expensive exploration that she and her husband are having to pay for out of their own pocket,
