Hott Times with PD
Sharing stories about faith, family, fun, and the crazy dayz when Parkinson's Disease moved in to the Hott House. "Excuse me, can I tell you something?" is how as a PD caregiver, this Hott Mama manages to find God's blessings within such an illness as PD.
It is my priveledge to share these stories with you and my prayer that you are also blessed by our experience living with Parkinson's Disease. Sounds a little crazy doesn't it?
This page will be a place for me to share the moments when I, personally, hear God tap me on the shoulder and say "Excuse Me, can I tell you something?" Oh, and by the way, this is a picture of my hott-hubby Dan and I on April 21st, 2012, when we wore our grey to show awareness for Parkinson's Awareness month.
My experiences with PD are captured in these stories (not in any particular order, just my typical chaos):
