Today I hired the perfect care giver – she is spunky, loving and goes out of her way to give. I was a little concerned that I couldn’t afford her services Beautiful Momentsbut she is worth that and more.

Yesterday was Jayne’s first visit; she came for a 5 hours stint.  I went out to help my sister find an apartment and had an appointment to get some acupuncture therapy.

When I got home and opened the door I hear the sound of music – my husband laughing!

Jayne was sitting next to him and he was having a belly laugh, on top of that my house was clean.  My heart filled with true gratitude and joy.

To see my husband smiling and laughing is an amazing gift – So many beautiful moments with my husband so glad I quit.

Thank You God

“I know this path is one I need to take I have no choice…”

My emotions are so volatile. One minute I am seeing improvement in my husband the next I am worried I won’t have him for much longer.  I know Parkinson’s with Lewy Body does have this characteristic. Your body cannot regulate itself so one day your blood pressure may be high, and then it drops. One day it seems things are going well – the next not so much.

I quit my job at the state I had worked there for close to 16 yrs. Part time but it gave me full benefits so our insurance was great and paid for. I thenGiven Path also have my own business, when my husband became ill I could no longer run my business and just took on old clients no new ones.

I quit my job for many reasons, but in the end I know I needed to stay home with my husband. He will see my face when he wakes up and when he goes to bed. I can make sure that he gets what he needs, and I can take the precious time I have with him and soak it in.

He will be able to be fully covered on Medicare part A, so he doesn’t need any more insurance, and I have found affordable insurance for myself.

I am on the path I need to be and was guided to.  A year ago, I would not have known how I would be able to afford to live let alone quit my job.  Now through investments, I could  pay off my house, get a new car with cash and put money in the bank for my husband’s care. All because my husband was a very smart business man and left me the tools. It took lots of prayer and guidance, but you know when you are on the right track things fall into place.

And when you are following a voice that seems to guide you – things go the way they should. This is the second time during my life it is as if God just picked me up and showed me the way. I didn’t have a choice – the path was in front of me…

Thank You God…

What a wonderful day we had. My brother came out from Tooele, and we put my husband in the car, so we could go for a drive. Since I have been giving my husband, a supplement that actually causes ketosis (Keto//OS) he has just become so animated and his memory is so much better.

Before I started giving him Keto OS, he was taking a turn for the worst. I was in tears most of the time – but the improvement is astonishing now he is walking with assistance, when we drove passed a park that his mom and he use to walk in he told us about it, he even said this has been a wonderful day! Just seeing him smiling when we were out for the drive made my heart sing.

Before we started giving him this supplement, he was not walking, very lethargic and was in that state you see with Dementia patients – it looked like he was sleeping with his eye’s open and out of it most of the time.

I am not being “pollyanna”  or pretending he is going to get better because of the supplement. My purpose for trying this is so he have a better quality of life as long as we have him here with us.

This product seems to be living up to my wish.

I will put the product link on my resource page

For me it is  about brain health but it also helps in weight loss. This is an amazing product…
