Hello my dad has been diagnosed with motor neurone disease recently and is in hospital. He's 79.
I live 60 miles away and am an only child
He's been getting weaker over the last 6 months or so but put it down to age and a bad cough.
He's unhappily married and I'm feeling sad and overwhelmed with it all. I'm thinking we need to talk to a consultant about prognosis and support, I'll arrange this once the diagnosis is confirmed
Any advice gratefully received
