Multiple Sclerosis & family: wheelchair rollin' 2008

As a caregiver I have never found myself even trying to make a list of New Year’s resolutions. While you certainly must prepare and can ‘try’ to anticipate, the disease progression of the person you care for drives the agenda.

2009 finds me beginning my 19th year as a spouse caregiver, and Patti her 24th year since diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

Captured below in 1 minute and 36 seconds is a look back at 2008 accompanied by "Old Man River".

Multiple Sclerosis & family: wheelchair rollin' 2008

Uploading this I was humbled to discover that Caregivingly Yours videos have been watched nearly 60,000 times since October 2006 when the original Multiple Sclerosis & family: wheelchair rollin’ debuted.

You Tube “insight” feature informs me that our original rollin’ video while most popular in the US, China ranks second, with Sweden and Germany tied for third in views.

Thank you ALL for caring! We will do our best to keep our story of living with Multiple Sclerosis and family, rollin’ on for 2009!

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick Leer

  1. just keep rolling that camera, Patrick; we're along for the ride as long as the ride is, as bumpy as it is, as smooth traveling it is; we're rolling along with you!

    Happy New Year to you and Patti!!


  2. A wonderful look at 2008! I bookmarked the UTI drugs to remember when the time comes. Thanks!

  3. I really appreciate your post and you explain each and every point very well.Thanks for sharing this information.And I’ll love to read your next post too.

  4. Most be really hard care giving for someone with a disease. Probably even harder for the most with the disease to accept they have these limitations in their life. We should all be grateful for our health. If you don't have your health you have nothing.
