  • Hi! How are you doing? Have you got anything situated with help for your mother. My dad is doing very well considering he can no longer do much. I miss him so much since he lives in a assistant living home in Dallas now near my brother and sister. We couldn't find adequate 24 hr care for him and I couldn't do it since I have to work to pay for medical insurance. Take care. You are in my prayers. Kim

    I wanted to add something to my post from 7/16. It is now the 30th, and I am re-thinking the nursing home thing. I have been losing it. I mean, I have been ON for days now and my mom is progressing. I am really having a hard time. I can't keep up with her needs and they are increasing every day it seems. I feel so guilty, but I really don't think I can keep this up. It is only me, really. My brother isn't much help, my sister in law that was spending one night a week is going in for a hysterectomy. There will be my best friend that can take one night, but that will be it. Mom says she has 6 months left...she says she 'can tell'. I hope she does. But I don't think I can continue to do this for 6 months. I just don't know how.
    I'm not sure if I am sending this correctly, there is certainly a lot to navigate here and I am not tech. savvy! I don't even have a facebook account :) Anyway, although I am not happy why I am here, I am very glad that I am able to talk with people going through the same thing. My husband is wonderful but it's his mother who has ALS and he can't talk as openly about these things.
