My husband was on the scales again today 10lbs in 14 days. The breathing problems are getting worse, they are starting to happen even at rest now. Hands, arms, shoulders shrinking each and every day. I noticed this evening that he has tic's in his chest now, not just his arms and hands. His fingers are beginning to draw up to his palms, and the cramping is dibilitating, they are in his chest, diaphram area very bad tonight, but I think even worse is his attitude towards things, he came home this evening very low in spirits, He called a very old friend and I overheard him explaining how he is feeling, he said he feels like his body is shutting down, like he has no control over his own body anymore, this isn't like him at all, he was a strong person, a person whom everyone turned to because of his wide shoulders, and caring attitude, but now, I don't know what to tell him, his neuro appt isn't until the 16th, I try to keep him upbeat and happy, carefree, but he knows his body better than anyone, and there is something wrong with him. I pray we make it til the 16th, Everyone say that prayer with me.
