Hi Al (and the others)

My brother used to take some of those supplements, he also would had protein powder (vegan) to his food. I think he is at the point now that he just isn't hungry. He has a lot of trouble swallowing...and does not have a G-tube (doesn't want one). It's like his body is shutting down...

We ensure that what he does it is balanced in terms of nutrients: protein, fat, carbs, vitamins,...He is a vegan, has been for the past 30 years, only eats organic food, really good food, a variety of vegetables that most of us don't even know exists, plenty of grains, lentils etc.... Actually he was the poster child for health prior to this ALS thing. Exercised regularly (very chiseled, muscular body) always rode his bike (he hates cars, they cause to much pollution) everywhere...

When are you leaving for Cuba? I speak spanish, perhaps I could be the interpreter for you and your wife


Take Care
