In 1993, I married the most wonderful man! We met in a bowling alley as John was an addicted bowler...4 leagues a week, which was hard since he worked nights at a bakery. I worked days and with him working nights, we hardly saw each other, so when he could retire, we headed to Tucson to enjoy not only the sun, but took up golfing and joined a bowling league. That was in 2001. John got his first 300 in bowling and won first place in his men's golf . Then in 2014 he started to have issues with stability when walking...that is when the diagnosis of ALS came. Within a year he was using a walker and wheelchair to get around. That was the way it was until around 2016 when he was hospitalized for dehydration and then confined to a power chair. While he has lost his mobility, he still has a good spirit, a twinkle in his eye and still can crack a joke and laugh. We know what the future holds for us and yes, I more than him, get down but with the help of our family, the VA and our caregiver, we have hope. Please support the ALS org in your town! We know a cure is out there with your help.
