Hello. My father-in-law is suffering from ALS. He was diagnosed in Nov. 07' and was though to have had it for 2yrs already. Currently he is declining in his abilities. My husband is heartbroken, as am I, and doesn't know what to do. We live on the opposit side of the country as his father and with his seemingly rapid decline my husband is scared that he won't even be able to talk on the phone with his father soon. He is going to visit for a week soon and has two other times this summer scheduled for week-long stays but he is worried that he should be doing more to help and we should move closer. I don't know how to compfort him and I don't know the answers. Realistically we can't move back. (bad housing market and great careers) Any advice that might make him feel more useful or any advice for me to comfort him?
