It is time...

to tell you all that my speech is almost gone. This is the first major step in the battle called Bulbar onset ALS. Next up, loss of the ability to eat. Then the last step, loss of ability to breath. Better for me if when you wish to speak with me to email or text. I am still here mentally, just can't get the words out any more. I would learn sign language but then I would probably lose the use of my hands so I will pass on that. Email is where I can be most expressive but texting is second best and will work for me as well. Thanks for understanding.
