My ex was stricken with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) about a year and a half ago. My kids (especially my youngest, 21 yrs old) are having a very hard time dealing with it. I've never asked on this forum, but they need prayers and support from anywhere any everywhere. This son quit school to help his mom, but she recently moved in with her brother and sister-in-law and now he is alone. He visits her daily, but comes home to a vacant house and is very depressed. His two eldest brothers (twins) live together in the family home, so they have each other and they both work full time. The middle brother lives in New Orleans and works full time and goes to school full time, so his mind is occupied, but all are having a very hard time dealing with their mother's illness. Any prayers you can send will be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

Terrible disease. Prayers for your kids and they deal with this issue in their lives. May God give them strength.

Thinking of y'all. You might PM P*Q for some resources that may be able to help everyone (counseling, etc.)

One of my childhood friends is slowly succumbing to this horrible disease and it is so hard on the faimily. And they have a tremendous support system. It must be horrible on this young man to deal with it alone. Prayers for him and all concerned.

Prayers going up for your ex and your children. I can't think of much worse than ALS.

+1 on what Skittles said, AND

Additional prayers coming for you, in helping to deal with your own feelings regarding this, for helping you to comfort and counsel your children, and for aiding you in comforting and dealing with your ex in his time of need. May the spirit of our Lord and Savior help you to serve in the way you are needed, and show His kingdom to all involved through this tragedy.

Prayers for everyone in this family struck by such a devastating turn of events. Sometimes people will find themselves coming to the plate to take someone under their wings, setting all other emotional baggage aside. My prayers will be that all family members are helped in this manner and that no one is left to fend for themselves.

Thank you to all who expressed their kind words to me. Thank you also to all those who read the post and sent prayers but remained silent. I am grateful to you all. My ex is getting progressively worse as expected. She will be speaking with hospice at the beginning of the year. She told me that she knows this Christmas will be her last. I hope she has found some peace, and I keep praying for that miracle. I also keep praying for my sons, who will be without their mother soon. I lost my mother in my 40s, so I expect it will hurt them in their 20s.

So sorry SLU - this disease is horribly painful to watch, and I am adding you all to my prayers.

My former wife finally succumbed to this dreadful disease on Friday, Dec 28. She was in a hospice for nine days. Thank you all so much for your prayers and support. I don't wish that on anyone.
