Hi Everyone. I just want to say that I am very grateful for this site and the time that everyone takes to respond to each post. My dad started displaying symptoms last summer. He was falling a lot and having fasiculations. He went through a boat load of tests and was diagnosed with als this past March. On the day of his diagnosis he could walk the hallways at the hospital. Fast forward to this month and he couldn’t even get into the hospital without a walker. He took a breathing test and he is still at 89 which the doctor says is good. I have no idea what that means. His upper body is still working pretty well, he just has a bit of weakness. No eating issues either. I guess what I am wondering is, if he progressed this fast in relation to his legs will it continue at this pace and affect everything else pretty fast as well. I know there is no straight answer, I guess I just want to hear everyone else’s experience.
