Lord, we lift up Glen to you, asking that you would touch his body right now. Heal him, comfort him, and may your peace be upon him in this difficult time. Give his loving brother peace, encourage them, and let Glen feel your healing touch! Amen.

Have him get a second opinion (if he has not done so). ALS is a tricky disease to diagnose, and it is diagnosed by excluding other possibilities. However, this means that doctors are wrong here far more than with most diseases (I heard 20% of the time an ALS diagnosis will be a false positive).

But still 20% is not good odds. My uncle died last January from ALS. He died much earlier than most who are diagnosed, and it was somewhat sudden. Be sure to make the best use of the time you have with him.

I will pray for you.

Prayers have been said for you and your brother. I lost my dear dad to a brain tumor 15 months ago. The road you travel will be difficult and you have my heartfelt wishes for strength and wisdom along the way.

If you feel a little lost and alone sometimes, remember His footprints in the sand. He is carrying you and your brother now. He will not abandon you. God bless you and Glenn.

Prayers for you and your brother as this is most difficult diagnosis. Like Vickixxx and LovedSinner stated, please double check that it isn’t something like Lymes. TV, years ago, had a story on how people with Lymes could be turned around with the proper medications after suffering ALS symptoms. They had been told they had ALS, and yet they were experiencing problems because of a tick bite. (My best friend’s mother was dealing with ALS at the time, so we were hoping this would be her situation.) It is certainly worth investigating.

Prayers for your brother, in Jesus Holy Name.

Also, tell him to go to truthinlabeling.org and learn about the connection of MSG to nerve related diseases. He should try a no MSG diet and see if he improves. MSG is marketed by many different names in products. The info is at the before mentioned site.

Am going to give it a try as I have Fibromyalgia and the joint and muscle pain, plus Peripheral Neuropathy leg pain, keep me awake most nights, I refuse to take those dangerous sleeping pills, I live in Memphis, and it is not a safe city to live in, even if you are on the edge of it. Crime is mobile and I want to hear the alarm and the dogs not sleep through them.

But he was exposed to chems he may not know about. Also hire a SS disability lawyer, a good one on the FRONT END, do not go through the gov’t’s red tape, you will be turned down repeatedly. and get him to working on getting your brother on Disability..it will help income wise if nothing else. Also qualifies him for Medicare A & B.

They kept a guy from my Sunday School class who was on the heart transplant list dangling for 3 years. So get the lawyer on the front end...they get 25% off the top, it is all they can get. And you get back pay from the day you file to the day you are approved. And your brother is going to need the income as the disease progresses. Medicare may be rationed health care but at least for now it is some help.

Nos prières à Dieu augmentent pour votre frère et toute votre famille.
(Our Prayers to God increase for your brother and all your family.)

Notre Père qui es aux cieux,
Que ton Nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation, mais délivre-nous du mal.
Car c’est à Toi qu’appartiennent le règne, la puissance et la gloire,
pour les siècles des siècles. Amen

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)
