I didn't post last night because I didn't have anything positive to say. We are all really struggling right now. Curt's ability to walk has decreased so much in the last two weeks that he is in the wheelchair just about full time. This happened so fast we haven't had time to adjust. Our activities are getting more and more limited. When Curt does try to take a few steps he is very unstable and is falling more often. The kids have been great to help him when needed but they are all very sad. I am barely sleeping due to insomia for the last month so my ability to make the best of everything is not present. I am tired, defeated and heartbroken. I am sad for Curt and sad for the kids. I want to protect them emotionally, but there is nothing I can do. I feel defeated by this disease. Curt is, as always, taking it as it comes and trying to keep his spirits up for us. We are still laughing and carrying on with life, but the sadness is more present more often.
All I can say for now is please pray for our family and thanks for supporting us.
Cindy, Curt, Clarissa (17), Cayden (15), & Corbin (10)
