With snow falling overnight, Thanksgiving 2005 should be magical! ... Yet Thanksgiving morning is forever a bittersweet and complicated memory for me.
Time capsule - THANKSGIVING 1989 ...
Horror waited for us Thanksgiving morning. Patti awoke unable to see, walk, or even talk. In the blink of an eye life changed. Patti was hospitalized and reeling with her first major MS exacerbation.
Patti had previously been diagnosed as "probable" MS. Her symptoms had been only a brief period of some numbness in her fingers and slurred speech. That was 4 years before (1985). She was FINE. We were both working, had a beautiful 18 month old daughter, owned a vintage 1904 home, two cars, two cats, life was wonderful. We had so much to be thankful for. It was to be a perfect Thanksgiving. ... MS had different plans.
... and a long, strange journey began.
