More loses due to ALS.


Add to the list.



Can not put my pants on standing up, I don't have the balance anymore. I can still put them on by sitting on the bed.


And taking fluids by mouth is gone. I now choke on everything.


And from before here are the other things I can't do.


I cannot talk.


Cannot eat.


Cannot walk without tripping.


Losing strength.


Having a harder time every day buttoning my pants. I stop wearing button shirts months

ago.


Having increasing difficulty breathing.


I bite the side of my mouth and tongue at least ten times a day.


I drool uncontrollably despite the medicine I take to stop it. The medicine that makes me constipated. Which necessitates another medication for that.

I'm so sorry, Russ. That sucks. Any idea if you will make it to Nasholds' farm on Oct. 2?

Scott,


Change my mind. I will be there and I will be drinking through my peg tube.
