Dead man Talking (Updated 1/14/2021)

Updated: Jan 15, 2021

Hi, Russ Newton here. I was diagnosed with Bulbar onset ALS on November 1st, 2019. I retired that day and am sitting here on November 3rd, 2020 with only difficulty speaking and eating. No secondary symptoms as of yet. This is amazing my doctors, and I myself am somewhat more relaxed about this. I am a little worried about getting a feeding tube, it feels like a step in the wrong direction. But I met with a doctor today and talked through it so I am going to bite the bullet and get the operation to have it placed. It will give me a way to take protein in and keep my weight up and I am still allowed to eat by mouth what I can. So the operation is next Thursday, stay tuned for updates.

Picture is with a Female Red Drum fish I caught fishing off a river in North Carolina in 2015 I think. You would know if it is a male, the fishing we did was during the mating season and the guides and other guests who have been there before won't tell you this. But you catch a male and they bring it in the boat for your picture, they always release their sperm. All over your lap! I saw it happen after I caught my fish when the guy I was fishing with caught one. The guide thought it was the best thing he had ever seen, I on the other hand had a lot of sympathy for the dude.

Here is what happens when you catch a male! I am sorry I have forgotten his first name but he is Sam Hightower's son, my host for the event.
