November 2011

Well here we are just a few months till a new year begins. Where has the time gone? It seems like this year flew by and it's all just a blur. What have you done to make this year a  memorable one? I'm not sure I can give you an honest answer to that question regarding myself. It sort of feels like I just exist, trying to stay positive through this phase of my life.  

I had a recent visit with the ALS clinic in Hershey, which I felt went fairly well. My breathing capacity dropped to 48%. They recommended nebulizer breathing treatments three times a day to help keep my lungs clear and help with phlem building up in my lungs. Seems to be working. All in all they were pretty pleased with my condition over all. I'm getting some modifications done to my chair.

Carla Whitley a long time friend of ours recently organized a walk in for the ALS Association in Atlanta where she lives. Emy was able to fly down to participate in the walk. Thank you Carla for doing this for me. Funding for research to find a cure for this dreadful disease is grossly underfunded compared to other diseases and every little bit helps.
