    I was so sad to get your message about Ron. You and your family are in my prayers. If I can be of support in anyway please message me anytime. Sending you a big hug. Kim

    Hi! I How are things going for you? My dad has moved away from our small town to move to Dallas, Texas where my brother and sister live. I miss him so much. We just couldn't find adequate care for him here. Dad isn't good but his progression has been staying pretty much the same for awhile. Our twins will be turning 16 on the 19th. Two new driver's in the family. Yikes! Take care, Kim

    I could write a book about our nighttime experiences but one thing I was wondering...did you husband get hot at night.Ron has me turning the heat off and opening windows,also he is very sensitive to smells and says it's hard to breath if there is a strong smell.I look at his chest and there is really nothing left but I don't know what that means...he refuses to go to the dr.I called hospice to get morphine and Ativan but I'm still waiting and I don't snow if he will take themm anyway

    Does he have COPD or other lung issues besides ALS? O2 sats aren't enough to assure proper O2 levels--he needs to have blood gasses drawn, probably.

    Hi Debbie, your husband sounds like mine. Mine wants no feeding tube, no vent. Im scared for this. We arent in the situation of needing those things yet, but I know its down the road, because there is nothing good down the road....How is your husband. Can you tell me how it is when they dont want the vent or feeding tube, what do i need to know?
