I send warm and joyful wishes to all of my friends and family this Christmas. I'm sorry that I have not been as present this year. 2017 was a long year with my dad's passing and my battle with Parkinsons. I saw major set backs in 2017 but in defiance, I have triumph in my sights for 2018. I live a private life now I don't chronicle on social media. I live it instead. Know that I have found solid ground once again and I am thriving. I am filled with gratitude for the little things. I have tremendous love surrounding me. I triumph over PD some days and I exert more effort to do what came so easy on other days. I walk slower than I used to, but you can't stop me on my bike; that's where I leave PD behind. I look forward to DBS surgery with anticipation. I have so much more to accomplish in this second half of my life. PD will soon move out of my consciousness after surgery thanks to a pulse generator regulating the signals from my brain which will allow me to live in tremor free peace. I smile at the thought of that first day of stillness. Incredible! My health is better than ever and so is my heart and mind. Thank you for all the messages asking for an update. I wish you peace, joy, love, prosperity and very good health in 2018. And don't forget to live life like you mean it by making every day count.
