- Loved one DX
I just wanted to let everyone know that a PALS is the same person they always were. My family has been only been dealing with my sil diagnosis for about a month, but, let me tell you that once you take a day and just let it go (even for a little while), you can still laugh and just have a ball. She has weakness in her hands and slurs (everyone that doesn't know about her ALS thinks she drunk) and we went Saturday and were just the same two chicks that we have always been. ALS did come up a few times, but, we actually had a day without tears, we went to the Saturday flea market, out to lunch and came home a made beef stew in a pumpkin-yes, in a pumpkin (thanks Martha Stewart). That evening, we were in the kitchen laughing about something (I'm sure something stupid) and I saw my husband just looking at us. Later, when I asked him what that was all about, he just smiled and said that it was good to see us back to our old selfs-same as always. I don't think that I will ever forget Saturday and I just want to let everyone know that there is a light that shines down on us each and every day!
