My sister, a 45 yrs old, was just diagnosed with Bulbar Palsay ALS two weeks ago after having symptoms of slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and weakness in her thumb and arm. In less than two weeks she can barely swallow and is eating only liquids - Boost - and mushy baby food type foods and can barely talk. It seems to be progressing very rapidly. We are clueless on ALS! Can anyone tell me what we should do first? She definitely needs to find a good support group. DOes anyone know of any inthe Cincinnati, Ohio area? Any info would be greatly appreciate. She has two small children, ages 2-1/2 & 6 and her husband is devastated also. Help? Suggestions?
