Thank-you for the replies. It really helps. We have made some strides today..getting a medicare system, contacting als BC, and homecare. I have decided to go out there, with baby, for January. Mikes comments about being around family and in particular (only) grandson really struck home. My husband is not too happy about having us leave for an extended time.

One of the problems is that this area is so hard to get to - the options are driving 11 hours through mountain passes or flying to Castlegar, where planes never seem to land! I was just out to see dad, and because of snow, they landed the plane six hours away and we had to take a bus the rest of the way. The bus dropped us off late at night, at closed airport, with no taxi to a hotel - Dads place still being two hours away. An hour flight turned into a two day adventure. A nightmare with a baby! Now you can see how difficult it is for him, or anyone in that area, to get proper medical care.
