    Hi Sue, the hospital planning to discharge my mom tomorrow (10/30) but they are discharging my mom without PMV and swallow test. I know it is case by case but how long did it take Brian to tolerate (?) speak with PMV?

    Hi Sue
    My husband has ALS. He cannot use his arms legs are very weak and is on the trilogy most of the day and all night. We currently have a caregiver but just found out she needs to go back home to take care of her mother. We live in Pittsburgh and I was wondering if you know of anyone that can help with caregiving. We are paying out of pocket right now.

    Saw your most recent post - can you share your email? We have the same age kids and I'm going through the same struggles. Unlike you, though, I'm not brave enough to put it all out there. I would appreciate a friend who understands what I am going through.

    Hi. I saw your post about Medicare in home care. I found this (link) that might be covered in the upcoming webinars sponsored by Team Gleason. It has some information that might interest you.

    ps - If you go to the Millvale ALS meetings, you may have met my wife Lori -

    Hi Sue,
    I just wanted to reach out to you after reading that your husband has been on a vent for 6 years and how hard it is to maintain friendships when we can rarely leave our homes. I have only been doing this for 3 years but have struggled with the isolation it has created. Feel free to contact me when you need a connection with someone who knows what you are going through. Kate
