It is very hard to a good neurologist who has good knowledge of Parkinson’s disease. We were blessed to have one of the best in the city for a few years after changing doctors several times. Unfortunately, he retired. But he recommended one of his colleagues. We saw her for the first time today. She was young and bubbly, and I wasn’t quite sure what to think at first. She told us that Wednesday is her day to see Parkinson’s patients and that she spoke to my mom’s previous doctor today. That gave us both a little more confidence in her. She asked all the normal questions and seemed to have a good understanding of the disease. Then we focused on my mom’s current challenges. It seems that my mom’s medication is either ineffective or overly effective. And there doesn’t seem to be any consistent reason for the changes. The new doctor recommended adding another medication that should help smooth out those fluxuations. After some discussion, we decided to go ahead and give it a try. Mom took the first one tonight and we are hoping for a good result. It was encouraging to at least have an option to try.
I Found God today in my mom’s new doctor.
