fredrick the farmerThis is Fredrick, grandpa's guardian
who has decided to keep the garden
looking good now that he has gone




My Grandpa loved being outdoors, He spent most of it taking care of
his vegetable garden, the cherry and apple trees, and all his berries.
When I was a teenager I used to sneak into the blueberries, and then
I'd hide under a bush giggling, then listen for his familiar, Get that
red-headed woodpecker out of my blueberries before I shoot it!!
His idea of a Saturday was ringing this dratted bell hooked outside
my bedroom, waking both my Aunt and me so we could pit cherries
at 6:00 am! (NOT!) but guess again, he had us pitting thos cherries

OUR STORY

Grandpa was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 1991-93 or so,
There were some warning signs when we look back, but for the most
part he had hidden his symptoms from us and then later convince all
his hunting buddies to keep quiet about his loss of balance that would
occasionally happened or say I'm fine! I don't need a doctor! scat!

By the time he consented to see a doctor, he'd had Parkinson's for
several years, and he was put on levadopa and cinamet to help his
symptoms and to keep them from progressing. About 3-4 years after
being diagnosed, it was evident that his symptoms were progressing
quickly inspite of his taking the maximum allowed doses of levadopa

At first he'd stoop when he'd walk, then walk dragging his hands near
the floor. Then shuffling his feet unable to move one foot in front of
the other. like he'd forgotten how to walk unless he was told how to
His voice became soft where you'd have to bend close to hear him
His mind drifted into the past, thinking it was 30 years ago, and he
talk about places and things like it was happening at that moment, or
he'd look and then ask for his wife although she was next to him. He
didn't reconize the older woman, because he remembered her young

He loved to taunt grandma at med time, he'd grin slightly and then
spit it right back at her claiming he'd already taken it! while his eyes
twinkled as they argued back and forth on whether he took his meds
In time, he had problems drinking or swallowing his food, and instead
of words he only could make gargled sounds and noises in his throat
He also lost the ability to walk, sit in a wheelchair, he was bedridden

I dedicate this page in loving memory to grandpa who passed from
complications of pneumonia in April of 1999, and to my grandma. We
say he's hunting that huge white stag and catching salmon in the skies
