I am Kermit Peterson
living with ALS
My spirits and attitude are good and I embrace my path.
I have had right drop foot since January 26, 2023. Since that time I have had 5 months of PT, dry needling, a steroid shot in my lumbar region, 2 acupuncture visits, 3 EMGs, numerous blood tests, and 3 MRIs. I was diagnosed with ALS on September 6th. I still really just have right foot drop but now having some atrophy in right calf and thigh. Next Tuesday, November 14th will be my first ALS clinic and I will be interviewed by Roon on Monday, November 13th. My spirits and attitude are good and I embrace my path. I want to be an ALS advocate for the most horrible disease known to mankind.
