Whoever said life is fair - I hate that saying !!

Just got back from my sis's . She has gotten back her test results . She was found to be a carrier of the FIG4 gene ! Her docotor says that gene alone will not cause ALS , So that was the best news that I have had in a long time !! Got back and the love of my life has asked me to marry him - wow , I love him sooo much !! A couple days after that we were told that my fiance might very well have parkinsons disease !! He goes to a neuroligist soon to verify it . Our lifes - oh God . Things have changed drasticly already , he is not doing well at all . Will post again when we find out for sure .


Like many of you probably I am on an unofficial mission this Summer trying to make as many wonderful memories as I can with the man I love. Trying to find the perfect day. The perfect moment. It is a losing battle I know. Sadly we can't afford for me to stay home so I am working full time, trying to keep in touch with Family and Friends, all while trying to cram in as many outings as possible. Just in case.
