Yes, you’d be nervous too if holes were going to be drilled into your head
But I‘ve assured all who have asked , that I am not anxious nor do I feel any dread.
The bottom line is simply this – I have done everything that I can possibly do,
So Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson’s is what I opted to go through.
Not a decision made lightly nor without a multitude of exams and serious talk
From memory tests and mental evaluations to observing me as I walk.
The latter was not as easy as it sounds as I was off my meds for more than a day.
I tried do as instructed but the best I did was stumble every which a way.
An hour later and one dose of meds, I was put thru the same exercises as before.
Now I performed with the greatest of ease and I was ready to hit the dance floor.
I am on the surgery schedule now and “D” day is quickly closing in,
But rest assured, this is one battle I fully intend to win.
