RE: Major Dad hanging it up

Thanks for all the kind words and prayers. My family has a great support system at our church, and the VA is providing adequate funding. I wish researchers would find what causes ALS, and why military veterans get ALS at twice the ratio as the general population. As for transportation, the VA has provided a custom fitted manual wheelchairs and funding for a wheelchair van, which we used to buy an MV-1. So we are set up at least after the VA funded home modifications. So I will be hanging out at rv.net, and at my beloved Texas state parks. So if you see an old veteran tooling around in a fancy Permobil power wheelchair at a hill country state park, come on over and meet ol' Maor Dad!

Major Dad hanging it up

I knew this day would come, I just didn't think it would be this soon. I was diagnosed with ALS in February 2016, and the average life span of a person with Lou Gehrig's disease is 2 to 5 years but I don't think that I will even make it to two years. Being a quadraplegic has certainly taught me humility. But this old disabled veteran can't afford those fancy class A motorhomes with the built in lift system. My wife won't drive one of those anyway. The VA has provided us with all kinds of medical equipment, including this eyegaze computer I am using for this post. So however spotty VA medical care is they really come through with equipment and funds. All this to say farewell. I will miss hanging out on rv.net talking about my favorite hobby.
