Jock Doc collapsed last week and cannot any longer care for Barb. She is in a skilled care facility permanently. I will write more next week when I get recovered from the exhaustion. Jock Doc and Barb

So sorry to hear this. I will lift you both up in prayer. May you find peace in God.

Dear Jock Doc and Barb,
I am so sorry. I feel close to collapsing myself. It's strange but the more people help, the more exhausted I feel. It's like when some of the burden is lifted, you begin to realize how heavy the burden was in the first place. Please get lots of rest. My prayers are with both of you.

JockDoc, rest as much as you can..I am convinced you will soon find again phisical and psycological strength and you will be able to care for Barb in a different way...Hugs!

Don't sell yourself short Jockdoc ... you have been and will continue to care for Barb. You know, probably more than most people, that emotional support is at least as important as the physical! And who of us knows how much the emotional support; the love; the concern; the sharing of pain makes our PD patients' burden easier to carry? Don't put your most important and needed contributions for Barb's care down. When you are able to be up and around again, just sit next to her bed and hold her hand. She'll feel you there and she needs you there! God Bless

Hang in there, JockDoc. We're all pulling for you!

My heart goes out to you. May there be rest in the midst of all the changes you're facing.

I am thinking of you and Barb. Our paths have mirrored one another for the past few months and I feel a connection to both of you.

My huband lost his battle with PD yesterday morning at 12:15 AM. He fought it so very long but when he told me he was tired of fighting I knew what was coming. I am sad and relieved - you know what I mean.

Last night I slept for 8 straight hours. It will take some time to catch up on rest. I hope that you are doing better. Hugs and prayers.

I am sorry to hear about this recent turn of events. I hope you are soon back to strong health, and my thoughts and prayers are both with you and your wife.
Wishing you all the best -
