Published online in 2012. David wrote The Unexpected Journey over a period of five years in response to a request from family members. In 2005 he was diagnosed with spinal cerebellum atrophy #8. This relatively rare disease impairs balance, coordination, etc. by shrinking the brain stem. The brain’s instructions to the muscles are inhibited. This book talks about adjustments made, insights developed, and suggestions made to those enduring a physical journey they did not expect.
