Matthew is given four options to consider for treatment. He is certainly hoping that something will work and he will be able to function like he did earlier in his life. On his birthday his darling wife gave him a puppy, something that he longed for. While the puppy was still too young to be weaned from his mother, they had to wait a bit before getting him. When they went to pick the puppy up there was one little boy pup that kept playing at Matthew's feet. He then realized that this little pup would love him regardless if he had MS or not. This pup would love him unconditionally. This was Matthew's pick and takes this little one home and promises his wife that he would walk Teddy twice a day no matter how bad he felt. Teddy was such an encouragement and help for Matthew that he went on to get a degree, have two children and realized that MS stood for My Strength and it wasn't going to control him, rather he would control it.
This is a very enjoyable and heartwarming book that will enable the reader to look inside themselves to see if we are allowing anything to keep us from becoming the best person we can be. Matthew didn't allow a circumstance within his life to sidetrack him and neither should we.
For anyone who has MS or knows someone who does, this would be a very good read to better understand in a non medical way how someone can cope not only with the onset of the disease, but how to handle it and move forward.
Love you man......
Matt also has monthly treatments he cannot I've without as he will revert back very quickly. Imagine moving your family to another state, having 2 boys, finishing your Masters, and writing a Book in this short period of time and dealing with MS, I can't.
I have not met Joci, I can only imagine that she is the glue in this mix and works hard to help Matt and her family to realize their full potential every day. Matt always has many kind words to say about his family and speaks very highly about their relationship. That in itself is a miracle in this day.
Pick up this book and read it, you won't be disappointed. We don't get many opportunities to reflect on the positive aspects of our lives and this will certainly help you do that.
