Default Daddy has ALS

We just found out yesterday that my husband has ALS, coincidence since the sun is running a special section on that this week, that is how I found your site. I know we are in for a long journey, we are going to take it one day at a time. It is so hard! We just had a baby, he is concerned for her, he cries every time he looks at her (she is only 3 months old), I have a daughter from a past marriage who also loves my husband, she is 7, he filled a void for her, he is her daddy! He showed her what A dad should be, the unconditional love. I am so worried how this will change all of our lives!
I know I can cope but I am very concerned how he will deal with all this information, he has always been so busy taking care of others! I also know that my 7 year old daughter will be completely crushed.....
I am just starting to research everything over the net, any information that you may have to share would be greatly appreciated, I think the emotions and accepting this will be step number 1 for us...?
