Gleason had to get a tracheotomy today

LINK

quote:

Earlier in the day, Gleason awoke and was struggling to breathe, the source told WDSU. He was taken to the emergency room at a Jefferson Parish hospital, and doctors performed a tracheotomy to help alleviate the problem.

The source described it as a hastily scheduled surgery, but noted that family knew such a procedure could one day be necessary.


Was just a matter of when

He probably has the resources to stay home, and not at a care facility.

What a terrible disease. The mind is unaffected through all of this. Has to be the most awful experience imaginable.

Als and Huntington's are the absolute worst. My buddy's dad died of Als and he eventually had a traech. Unfortunately we're not likely looking at much more time here. fricking sucks

Well that sucks.

He probably doesn't have much more time, unfortunately.

Dad died from ALS in 93 I remember when he had to get a Trach, sad to say the end was not far behind. That was three of the best and worst 3years of my life

Very sad stuff, and that must of been a terrible thing to go through with your father.



Do you know how long people with ALS usually live for? Aren't there some that live for a very long time?

I guess I didn't realize that because of the trach being done, that now it's almost the end. That's all.

And yes, frick ALS.

a lot of ALS patients die of pneumonia/respiratory infection/respiratory failure.

that should say enough in where he is at this point

Unfortunately, as a doctor on the news put it tonight, typically the tracheotomy is considered a "milestone event" with ALS. Sad.
