Mike Brainerd with ALS
I would love more than anything in the world to find a cure but for now I am treating him the best way I know how. Unfortunately optimism and determination doesn't pay the medical bills and expenses. He has a breathing machine he uses at night and a suction machine daily. Not to mention the five trips to the ER, two with the ambulance,two surgeries and long hospital stays. I really didn't know where else to turn. I would appreciate any help anyone can give. Mike has a lot more life to live we just need help continuing his journey.
I posted an update on facebook, but I don't see it here. Mike is home now . We have nurses coming almost everyday. Between physical therapy, speech therapy and a RN to check on him. He is a lot more relaxed and happy at home. I took medical leave until we figure out a way to have care for him here during the day. He needs 24 hour care. A lot of things to sort out, but Chase and I are happy to have him home. I can't thank all of you enough for your generosity. With me not working right now , I am grateful for all the support.
