Not so good news - but still going forward

Posted by Suzanne Saavedra-Zaranti on March 9th, 2014


We made it to Phoenix to Sammy's doctor's appointment at the Barrow Neurological Clinic.  The news confirmed what we didn't want to hear.  We were told that Sammy would not walk again.  We are not giving up!  Sammy still feels tingling in his legs and sometimes when I massage his feet.  If you know Sammy, you know that he used to shake his leg constantly, especially when working.  I can sometimes feel his leg slightly shaking when he is sleeping.  He will no longer have to go through the IVIG treatments but the doctor encouraged him to keep up with the physical therapy.  We still need a lot of help to keep up.  We have applied to the state and government for help and benefits but that decision has not come through yet.  Neither of us have ever been the type to ask for anything until now.  Thank you so much for everyone's help now, in the past and in the future.  God Bless.
