Hi jo h,
Your Husband is exactly the same age i am.I was diagnosed aged 45 in 2009.It is good you are so supportive.There is half the battle won.I have a lot of the same symptoms.I am right side affected,right leg drag,tremor right hand,writing awful(if not on meds or wearing off).Lack of arm swing right.
I have Three Grand children,eldest 6 years old.I was at the park with him and his younger Brother(aged 2)the other day.I was playing football with them.You would not know i had pd.Another girl in the park was astonished when i was called Grandad.You are as young as you feel.You can also be as parkinsons as you feel.Parkinsons will not stop your Husband from being a Grandad,it could even give him more time to spend with and appreciate your Grandchildren and how un judgmental most children are.
Ironically,i also had a cancer scare before my pd diagnosis,so when pd was diagnosed,it did not shock me the same.Cancer i feared more.To say things have been plane sailing would be a lie.We all have our individual issues and problems.I have depression(many with pd do),like your Husband,amongst other things.There will be many ups and downs,but parkinsons is not life ending,it is just life changing.That is coming from someone that writes some of the most miserable poetry on here.There again,it is my own way of"letting off steam".Hopefully you and your Husband will find yours.
You will find hours of reading,no,make that weeks on here.Plus plenty of advice.
I wish you both,all the best
