Yesterday and today, Tuesday the 1st, have been relatively good days for me, with minimum problems, other than the usual fatigue and occassional shake/stiffness. I have finally noticed that the chest "palpatations" - if that what they were/are seem to have all but dissappeared. I started to take Pepcid AC for this last Thursday to see if it was my stomach and not my heart and it seems to help. Again, I don't know if it's PD that causes this or if it is something completely different. I did go to my family doctor yesterday for a checkup-he listened to my chest/lungs/heart and did an EKG which showed that everything heartwise looks good. I am having my usual blood work done to check chlolesterol/PSA/etc. I am also going Thursday for an ultrasound on my caratid arteries in my neck as well as I'm going to be wearing a heart monitor for a week to see if it detects any of these "palps". On the down side, my wife feels that there's nothing wrong with my heart and that I tend to "run" to the doctor whenever I get any ache or pain. Can't help it, cause I don't know if it's the PD or something else. I also, finally, made contact and got an appointment at Ohio State University Hospital in the PD department to see a PD doctor, who specializes in PD and the treatment of PD. Bad thing is I don't get to see the doctor until January, 2009, unless there an opening before then. I do believe that if I see a PD doctor, someone who knows, understands and specializes in the treatment of PD, that I'll be able to get a better "handle" on this and be able to "attack" it physically and mentally...

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
