Hello, just noticed your message. I am doing pretty good. I can still walk, just not as far. I can still do most things. My progression is slow. Your dad is fortunate that your brother will be able to have him live with them.
I just noticed you had left me a message. Thanks very much. I am doing ok. Can't walk or stand and my arms and torso getting weaker every day. I can still talk and swallow and eat and laugh, praise God! So am still enjoying life and getting through.
Hey Kim, did you talk to the ALSA in your area? mine has support meetings in a nearby town, but they also are organizing phone meetings for cals only-- they try to group together cals who have similar situations.
I'm very sorry to hear about your Dad and that you are having to deal with a divorce on top of everything else. I'm not on here as much as I used to be, got too depressing for me. Are you able to keep in touch with your Dad? Hoping things will turn around for you.
Hey Kim, I am so sorry to hear about your dad having to move. I am though glad to here that he is stable with his progression. It is just such a heart wrenching disease for us to watch our love ones go thru. Things aren't going so good we almost lost dad last Tuesday because of his breathing. He is no own supplemental O2 with his portable vent. Hospice said that he probably wouldn't make it till thanksgiving. His ALS just went so fast. I know you know how I feel but I can't imagine waking up one day and not being able to talk to him. Thanks for checking on me.
Things are not good here..we have support from pallite are now,,th docs think Ron may have a few weeks left,,no ore than 3 months..he looks like he has pnemonia now but it could just be viral..waiting and praying for him to be at peace and feel better..this suffering is unbelievable
I'm glad you got your dad settled somewhere and that he seems to be holding his own. My mom pretty much watches westerns and cartoons all day. And reads magazines and whatnot. She seems to be content to just sit and exist. And my pops is making it difficult to "take him in stride." LOL! I hope everything else is going well on your end. I know you've been in quite a rough patch.
