Hello all. I just found this site. My FIL was dianoised with ALS in 2003 and just until recently has been doing good. Over the past couple months he has gone down hill and Quit eating A week ago Monday. It is very hard on our family and I guess i came here for support and so I can help my husband through this all. We never knew much about ALS until My FIL was dianosed with it. It started in his hands and slowly moved to where is has to be in a wheelchair. Its gotten to the point now that it is affecting his speech skills and can hardly talk to us anymore. This is a really hard time for us all and i will answer as many questions as I can for those that need it. Thank you so much for listening to me.
