    Grieving process

    Prayers and hugs. I posted something simolar just a few minutes ago. I lost dad about 2 yrs ago and while I am somewhat better it still hits me at the most expected times. Hope it gets easier for you.

    Been a while

    It has been quite a while since I have visited, but I had to step away and get it together as some of ya'll understand. Dad passed about 2 yrs ago. I have moved on with my life but man I sure do miss him. Grief seems to hit at the most unexpected times. I consider myself a strong person but I...

    After ALS...

    I definitely struggled and to an extent still struggle somewhat. Thankfully I have an amazing support structure of friends who have stayed by my side through all of this. I hold it together pretty well now, but seems like in an instant I can go from fine to tears running down my face by seeing...

    It has been a while!

    Hello everyone! I have been away for awhile because honestly I couldn't handle reading posts anymore after dads passing as it put me back somewhere i wish I could forget. It has been 6+ long months now and the new normal has pretty much settled in and I wanted to drop in and say hello and once...

    The suffering has ended...

    Glenn Andrew Snow - January 19, 1934 - March 5, 2015. Dad was most certainly a fighter and put up a great fight for the last year +. He now has his wings and is no longer suffering. We have had nour moments of sadness and there will be more to come, but for the most part it has been a peace that...

    What would YOU do?

    I would say 100% go if you have a volunteer to stay with him while you are gone. You and your children deserve the break and to live your lives. He obviously wants you to go enjoy time with the kids and your family also. Me and mom have been lucky in that we have been able to ocasionally get...

    Just checking in...

    Hey ya'll! I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We are plugging on along on our end but had a nice holiday break. Dad just celebrated his 81st birthday that we weren't sure he would make it too. We fixed him the dinner of his choice and the hospice ladies hooked him...

    Smart Vest?

    Have any of you folks heard of or had experience with a smart vest? They are supposed to be sending one for dad to try. From my understanding it is similar to a life jacket that kinda of inflates and then pulses up to help get muccus and so forth up/assist with coughing/choking. Just curious if...

    Not doing good

    I am so sorry for what you are going through, I know it is very tough! We had a bad scare with dad just the other day to the point he told us is was over he couldn't go on but eventually settled in and is doing a little better as of this minute but that is subject to change at any minute. Big...

    Rough day

    So far today he seems to be doing better than yesterday. It was rough to deal with to say the least. I hope to not have anymore dress rehearsals to make somewhat light of yesterdays situation. He is still very tired and weak today but seems to be more comfortable and resting easier today. Thanks...

    Rough day

    The day started out badly from the begining. I went to get him like I always do about 8:15 and I had trouble rousing him up at all he would halfway open his eyes and then back out. I asked him if he wanted to get up and on the potty like we do everyday and he said no, I asked if he was ok and he...
