Sorry to hear your going thru this Cav. You, and your family, will be in my prayers. And you are right, the end of our time on this earth is where our strength lies. We know that and we know the Lord will get us there. We just have to stay focused on him.

If I'd been poked prodded and tested on by aliens I'd be leery of acupuncture as well.....

Cav I hope you find something that slows or reverses your condition. I am on,y a few years older then you and I worry about stuff like that. Will keep you in my prayers.

I know it is something that gives you pause. A punch in the gut, is what you called it. BTW, I am so sorry to hear of your prognosis. You are in our prayers.
All is not lost.
I would suggest re evaluating your prep, like you said. That is a great idea. Look into smaller (lighter) containers. Figure out what in your prep, if you didn't have your foot, or if you didn't have control over it. This is something everyone should look at. What if you were injured? How would you access and use your prep? None of us are getting any younger, and as age takes hold of our lives, our strength and agility leave us. This should be accounted for in the prep plan.

CAV, the foot could be a nerve problem. I have seen folks with a nerve "pinch" or a compression that can cause a loss of function if not corrected. Neurologist can give you an MRI or an CAT scan they can do them with dye and with out. WARNING RADIO ACTIVE DYE WILL CAUSE RENAL FAILURE!!! Make sure the guy has a plan to make sure to not cause renal damage. Acupuncture can help, if the person truly knows what they are doing....I.E. trained for many years and not a chiropractor who did a weekend training and now does acupuncture...... My mother has has some back problems and is getting her compressed disks stretched with a machine with weights and an angle, chiropractor not a Neurologist. She still has week muscles that will need to be rehabbed....
