My dad was diagnosed last week with ALS. He has an aggressive form. Doctors think he only has a few months to live. He has a tracheotomy and feeding tube. The past few days he's been having trouble breathing. He's been getting a lot of phlegm build up. The doctors are having a hard time getting it out. Is this a normal thing that happens when you are on a trache or is this the beginning of the end?
