Hello everyone. :smile:

We finally got to go Vanderbilt in Nashville to the ALS Specialist on the 29th of this month. Things went great, the dr just by physical exam does not think Andy has ALS. This is what we were wanting to hear. :p

But, it was so late in the evening, he did not get to read his muscle biopsy slides. The dr that reads them was not in. So the dr called us back today, and told Andy that he looked at his slides. He told him that Andy is having "chronic denervation and reinnervation" like I had posted before. He told Andy that it is just too early to make any diagnosed. Something is going on, but the drs just don't know what it is yet.
So now we have to go back, he wants to do a EMG.

So we are still waiting for a diagnosed. of something. Andy's health is the same. This gets so frustrating not knowing. But we are not going to give up looking for answers. We at least now have hope of no ALS.

So for you that are still waiting, keep the faith and stay positive. :wink:

My thoughts and prayers are still with you all.
Hugs Lori
