This Week's Carenote - 11/12/08
My husband is just diagnosed  with ALS and I am overwhelmed that he is progressing so fast.  I feel like my world is upside down. If anyone out there is in the same situation I would love to hear. Thanks in advance.

My Grandfather had ALS. I facilitate the Northwest Ohio ALS support group through the Northern Ohio ALS Association for pALS and their families. Please be in touch with your local ALS Association through the national website: http://www.alsa.org/ . They can provide a world of information. They also have support groups available for both the patient and caregiver that can be very helpful as you journey through this disease process. Reach out to meet others who are living with this disease. Also, if your husband is not already being treated by an ALS Specialist, you may wish to consider seeking out a Neurologist who specializes in treating persons with ALS. My best to you and your family. You will be held in prayer. Sincerely, Lisa
