Today I woke up another year older and a whole lot less shaky!
Today I began my participation in the Phase 3 Safety Trial for APL-130277 and I received a birthday present that blows the imagination. You have to watch this!!!!
P.S.: You have my permission to share this video, especially if you know anyone with PD.
I promise you. There is no one with more precious, loving and loyal friends and family than me. I have an overflowing blessing cup that never ceases to amaze me. My heart is so full. My life would not be the same without each and every one of you. Thank you for being a part or my journey.
WE ARE GETTING EXCITED!!
Lee: "What do you want for your birthday?"
Me: "My new medicine tomorrow"
Me: "Are you coming with me?"
Lee: "Wouldn't miss it!"
Me: "Me neither. What a great start to my new year."
I can't believe in about 24 hours it will finally be in my hands. Have to admit I never thought medicine would be my ultimate choice for a birthday gift, but in my new reality it is. To be 1 of 100 in the US who gets this present humbles me. I wish every PD traveler could have it. Right away. In the meantime I will let it right my ship and bring me some much welcomed relief. I plan to add a little fanfare flourish to the occasion. ITS MY 52nd BIRTHDAY. Bring it on!!!!
The older you get the longer your birthday celebration becomes and you find yourself enjoying an entire Birthday Week. I most definitely take advantage of that little benefit. Welcome everyone to my Birthday Weekend.
I am especially excited because my birthday is Monday. August 22nd. I turn 52 at precisely 2:55pm. At 10:30am, I will be picking up my new medicine to start the drug trial. ON MY BIRTHDAY!!!! I would say there is NO better present than that in the world world.... aside from a cure. In that absence, this is most assuredly the next best thing.
A shipping delay by the pharmaceutical company added to my work commitments coincidentally pushed my start date to August 22nd. I truly think it's all in the timing!!
LET THE CELEBRATION BEGIN............
