About a year ago, my dad started having strange symptoms, all starting about the time I lost my wife.. His hands were shaking, he couldn't hold anything, slurred speech, memory loss, and extreme fatigue were the most noticeable symptoms.. Doctor visits, tests, specialists all could not figure out what was going on with him. Diagnosis ranged from Leukemia to Parkinson's disease. Finally, after many months, they diagnosed him with ALS - Lou Gehrig's disease, and gave him 12-18 months. He's been on medication to slow the effects, and he's been at a plateau for quite a while.. Until now..
My dad has been a highly intelligent man all his life. He worked for a large corporation, in a fairly high position in his division. Someplace you don't get to be without knowing what you're doing. It's thanks to him that I was fortunate enough to see a lot of this speck of dust floating in space, and lived places I never could imagine living in now. Dad has always had a sharp wit, a kind word of advice and a generous disposition. He has taught me a lot over the years, lessons that I hope to pass on to the next generation, if anyone cares to listen - or remember what I'm passing on. Dad loved to go hiking, sailing, and has been in numerous marathons, raising money to help fight Leukemia. To see him in this state, barely able to shuffle, bent over, not remembering words, hardly able to speak, is heart wrenching. I never imagined my dad in this condition..
And now the symptoms are getting worse. We fear this could be the final slide.. I love my dad with all my heart, I don't want to lose him, but if this is it, I hope it comes quickly so he doesn't suffer anymore..

important question! what do you want Sabrecatz to be wearing in the YCH?
MrEd301 Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2015  Professional Interface Designer
Ummmm.. Yeah.. Typically he doesn't wear anything.. Maybe cut off shorts and an unbuttoned vest?
