I have a cousin who has ALS. He is 39 years old and married with 2 children. He is unable to move anything except for his head. He is the most wonderful person in the world. He has had a trach put in as well as a feeding tube. He is on a ventilator but is able to talk and swallow. All of this has changed his life and the life of his family but it has not got him down. He loves going out of town with family, going out to eat and even to Sam's Club or Best Buy. He has been in and out of the hospital lately, thanks to the Flu season. I was wondering if anyone wanted to share their experinces with knowing or living with someone with ALS. Thanks
