An Update

My daddy had his recent follow up appointment with the ALS Clinic at Vandy last week. He ended up falling in the restroom, but there were several helpful hands there to pull him up and to help get him back to his room. His breathing continues to decline. He has dropped to the 70 range and his weight continues to drop significantly. He was referred on to do a sleep study at that appointment. He and my mom went in for that study last night and upon waking this morning, he was told that “he failed every aspect of the test miserably”. He will retest in a week with a sleep apnea machine on and see how he does with that. He will also meet with the physical and occupational therapist for an evaluation next week. They will begin working with him on keeping his body moving.
Throughout this whole ordeal, I’ve seen my mom and dad go through some incredibly challenging days. And I am in awe of the strength, love, and faith that they are showing through it all.
