    Daughter struggling with father's ALS

    My dad was diagnosed with ALS about a year ago while I was living in out East and they were in the Midwest. I moved home to be close to family, help my mother (as she is helping with my dad and brother with Cerebral Palsy), and spend time with my dad while he was still in good health, or as good...

    Don't mean to hijack...

    Hi wonderful CALS. I know I don't belong here as a PALS but I just have to get your opinions as they are the only ones that count on this subject. My wife and I have been married 31 years. We had a rough patch for a couple of years around our 15th anniversary but it was all worked out. No...

    Another Nausea/Stomach Question

    I do not take any medications (I stopped Rilutek because of nausea). Recently I have noticed an increased difficulty in swallowing with more choking. I also get stomach cramps and nausea after I eat. I think it might be related to having more difficulties with breathing after I eat, even very...

    It has been a while

    It has been over 2 months since I last visited the forum and I see that we have lost so many more of our dear warriors. I was having some difficulty with the losses, and then my own body gave out on me. I have been Tim's sole care giver since he was diagnosed in 2012, but have been blessed...

    What help do you as Caregivers think would be helpful?

    I will not be my moms main caregiver as my house is a tri level, she will live with my Aunt and Uncle where she can be all on one level. I will go down during the day to hang out some times and probably overnight for one or two nights a week. So my question is this, what things would be most...

    Not Enough Calories

    Tom had a PEG tube put in 3 weeks ago. The dietician and the speech therapist both encouraged him to take as much by mouth as possible. The dietician wants him to have 2000 calories a day, half from regular meals and half from Ensure, either by mouth or by tube. He started out well, drinking 3...
