:P Your boyfriends grandfather is so lucky, i am sure that the first time he was diagnosed it must have been a mistake, I have never heard of anyone recovering from als. There may be periods of remission or slowing down of symptoms but never of being cured. What type of tests did he have that confirmed his diagnosed in the first place. Usually the diagnosed is only given after all other diseases are checked out first, as als is a terminal illness the doctors are usually pretty thorough in their evalutations before they give out a diagnosed of als. In any case it is wonderful news for your boyfriend and his family. Joy
