I saw 40 year old Godlove 2 weeks ago with a marked tremor, flat facies, difficulty rising from a chair and trouble initiating and stopping his gait.  It appeared he had Parkinson’s Disease despite his relative young age.  I started him on Sinnemet and Godlove came back yesterday with a huge smile on his face.  He initially sat down on the chair and immediately bolted to his feet with an even bigger smile.  He started bouncing around the room like a boxer warming up in the ring before a fight.  He was so excited about the improvement he had experienced from the medication he had to demonstrate his improved mobility.  Fortunately, a Pharmacist from Holland had just sent us the Sinnemet.  It was the first time we have had the medication in the 2 years that I have been here.

It was a real joy to share in Godlove’s Miracle.
