It has been quite a week for Sherry and me. We just returned from Mao Clinic in Rochester MN and we were both quite impressed. It is a very efficient facility with people who care. We went there to find out what is wrong with my darned leg and after fourteen previous doctors I felt like it was starting to narrow down to a couple of possibilities.
The good news is that I now have a very credible diagnosis. The bad news is that it is progressive multiple sclerosis. It is a form of MS that generally works very slowly but there are no remissions. I will probably need to use a cane and have an appliance in my shoe to help me walk.
While I was in the waiting room (we waited a lot) having a pity party it was not unusual to see people being wheeled by who had just had a leg amputated. It truly helped with my perspective. Life goes on and when it stops there is the afterlife.
Please keep Sam Felderman in your prayers. He is a very good man who could use them right now.
