Parkinson’s symptoms

Thanks for asking about my recovery. I am dong very well. I see the Orthopedic Doc tomorrow, Last visit he said the ribs were calcifying and beginning to heal…we will see tomorrow. I am walking everyday now and averaging 8K steps (most days getting in 10K!). I have restarted my balancing exercises and also my BIG and LOUD exercises. I have been to Mayo for post concussion check and PD check. Concussion has healed and my PD is still mild and border line needing meds. PD Doc and I will re-evaluate after ribs heal and back to full strength exercising. My lung has cleared of fluid BUT will have residual scarring for a while. I have continued doing deep breathing exercises to try and regain the lung capacity that I have lost…Doc thinks I have a good chance to add more capacity but not optimistic about regaining 100%…we'll see.

Feeling much better overall. I have been convinced to retire from cycling. So when I am able, I will hit the pool for exercise….I was a collegiate swimmer so maybe its time to return to the water 🙂 I will also restart yoga and weight lifting when I can. Also my oldest son is a Tae Kwon Doe Instructor – he is going to begin working with me. He says he will incorporate some of the Rock Solid Boxing principles with martial arts flavor. I am looking forward to it.

I am planning on going back to work on January 2, 2019. It has been a while and think I am ready to start back.

All and all, God is good…All the time. And all the time…God is good.

That is such a good report, @lsdempsey. I'm so pleased that you are doing so well. Swimming is great exercise so that should help you regain strength. I have many PD friends who have been involved in the Rock Solid Boxing and they enjoy it. Yes, I do agree with you when you say, "God is good, all the time, and all the time, God is good."
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a healthy new year.
