Wow, we are both Barrow patients & RN's. I work in pediatric home health. What part of the valley do you live in? I'm in the west valley. So sorry about your partner, he is lucky to have you. I have my husband of almost 24 years for my CAL. I'm bulbar onset, still walking, talking (slurred), & eating (couple of choking episodes).
Hi will and Jim
Did you get a definate diagnosis from Jim's dr yet? If you went to your dr and explained what problem you are having, my guess is he would be happy to help you and give you the dx of als. I had to do this as well, and they are still not sure what I have. als or pls. I'm coming up on the 5 year mark in oct.
