I don't know much about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease, but I do know that it's horrible.
One of my very favorite people on earth lost one of her very favorite people on earth to ALS this morning.
It was several weeks of not knowing what was going on and insisting on more tests when the hospital wanted to send her home. Finally a transfer to the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix and the grim diagnosis. Now less than three months later, my friend and her family are figuring out how to move forward without their rock.
It makes my heart break that I'm not there to help her.
