I was so stupid in my latest post on the Heartbroken thing. I totally forgot that his wife has bulbar onset and can't speak. I feel like a complete dumbass for that one for sure. Anyway, I am going to try to read more and post less. Think I got too much going on my head right now that I need to clear out on things. I do have a question though. My dad has trouble at time with his speech as well but when I ask him or my siblings that never say that he was diagnosed with Bulbar onset. Do almost all ALS patients have speech problems? I am sorry for causing friction on here and hope you will still be my friend on here. I noticed your birthday is listed as April 1st. That was my mother's birthday. Take Care, Kim

Welcome, Kimberly. Glad to hear from you. How are things going?
I must say that since Krissy's passing, our littler family has become much closer. We're happy and the teens actually hug each other. They're together all the time, laughing and joking. I've returned to school, which is my only social outlet.
Thanks for thinking of us. How are things in your neck of the woods?
Hope you are having a good week. Our twins are pretty excited about high school so far. Our youngest son Eric isn't quite as excited since homework cuts down his computer time. lol My dad is going to make a quick trip home Labor day weekend. My brother has his class reunion and is coming home for that. Dad is getting alot weaker. I think he will be getting a chair soon. His breathing isn't real bad yet but they just got him a bi-pap or some type of mask to wear at night so he sleeps better. I worry about him so much. But, I know he's getting the best care possible through the ALS clinic in Dallas. They are right on it if he needs anything. Take care of yourself. Hugs, Kim
My new room is working out fine, I have more help and the nurses and auds are very kind..... and the view is gorgeous of the cascade mountains and the water front....I am happily settled. But what a day moving was. When we had moved everything up the head nurse said I couldn't stay because DSHS wouldn't pay for it until all the paper work was finished!!! but Jacqueline called my community and asked if they would pay for it, and they said yes....just until the paper work comes through. So my heart dropped to the ground and then bounced back up. Its really is a miracle that they agreed to pay! Any way I am settled. Thank you for your prayers!
The hot weather is coming our way...suppose to be 93 today! Thank God I have an air conditioner!!!
love you much
How are you doing? So, glad to see you back on the forum. You have alot of friends on here who care about you. They were beyond worried when you were missing in action. Hope you are having a good weekend? How is your chair working out? Hugs to you, Kim
