abirke, I think it was you who asked me when symptoms started. I thought about when he started shuffling and realized it was in Sept. Went to one neurologist, who was an absolute idiot, watched him take 5 steps and said he has Parkinson's. Gave me a script, don't even remember what it was for, since I threw it in the garbage. Memory issues as well. Took him to another neurologist, who we have used for years and he said he really didn't know what was wrong with him. Those 2 issues were the only ones he had back then. Since he has heart problems as well, around that time he developed AF, what month I don't remember. The med he was given did not work for that and his cardiologist said hospital, came out with more physical issues which I blamed on the new med he had put him on. He was quite upset with me. Since then it has been a roller coaster. OK, today he is 78 years old and will take things day by day. Will be going to our daughter's house later on. He requested Tacos for his birthday dinner, which she makes very well. I feel like ranting and raving but will try to keep myself together.
