This is the post that I thought I wouldn't have to do for a couple more years. Unfortunately this damn disease is getting ready for its last kick at the can. My lung function has significantly decreased and my limbs, neck, and core muscles continue their deterioration. I have been referred to the Palliative Care Team. These referrals happen when there is a life expectancy of around six months.
That was the bad news.
The good news is that I still have a smile on my face. I've had nice visits from family and friends, and I still find joy every day.
