Hi there, I am new to the group as well as the site. I am a stay at home mom of 2 currently caring for my husband who has ALS. He has been sick since 2000 but diagnosed last year. My son was also just diagnosed with cancer last week. So I have my hands full but enjoy talking to others who know what its like.

Hello,
So sorry to hear about your husband and son, but glad you found the group. I just created it earlier today - hopefully, others will find us as well. 


How far along has your husband's disease progressed?  My father was diagnosed in the Fall of 2004, but was having some muscle weakness for about a year before that.  Right now he is in a motorized wheelchair, has pretty much lost all use of his hands, and his having some minor speech problems. However, he is still able to bear some weight on his legs...
