Bruce is getting ready for Tuesday the evalution for the DBS.Keep him in your prayers everyone. We all will be waiting for this next step for him as Carole has, to get better quality of life. It takes a lot of courage. we are all with you Bruce.
: : Bruce are your out there? Haven't heard from you in awhile. Hope everything is OK. Does anybody know about Bruce?
: Darrell -
: I hope Bruce won't mind if I update the board. I have had a couple of e-mails and can tell you that he has an appt. Nov 14th with the neurologist at the hospital one hour from where he lives re: his upcoming STN-surgery. He also said that if he takes the sinemet he needs to provide strength, he has been experiencing severe dyskinesia. He is very weak when not dyskinesia-ing. (been there and it's a B****). The surgery will not come too soon for Bruce. His neighbor is still hospitalized with the infectious knee and Bruce is getting to the appt. next week via the neighbor's wife and her sister. Pray things goes well for our dear friend, Bruce. Surgery is the last resort, and hopefully as I've experienced, a second chance at some quality life!!
