It was controlled, he was comfortable and we were all there.

I know I have only been here a short time, but I want to thank you all for your support.

We are looking for ALS patients, in our area, that could benefit from some of his equipment.

I am very sorry. Wishing you peace and comfort. I am glad he was comfortable and had his loved ones there

When you are ready there is a subforum here where you can list things you wish to sell or give away. Your local ALS association likely has a loan closet as well. Thank you for thinking of others in your time of grief

My Sincerest condolences, but I'm so thankful for your dad and all of you that it was controlled and comfortable for him. Keep posting in the past CALS section if you need, as it still takes some time (I'm nearly 9 months since Chris passed) before life feels at all normal again xxx

thank you!

It was a different death than I've witnessed in the past. Due to him being on the Trilogy they had to keep upping his comfort meds to be able to decrease the trilogy setting, until we were able to turn it off. It was an INCREDIBLE amount of morphine and ativan he was getting, but they did a really good job, he did not suffer.

I will look into our local ALS association.
