Advice & Tips: Today Pat felt really bad but wanted to continue the course til the end. He had a lack of appetite for food and liquids today, but I tried to push both. He was pretty gassy today too. Another 3 hour nap today. He had the excessive drool after each dose today, but it cleared up after about 20 minutes and he had no problem with drool during the rest of the day. Major headache, major tummy queasiness and major nausea today. Pat describes it as having flu like symptoms. We saw no noticeable effects, either positive or negative as far as Pat's ALS.

Advice & Tips: This morning Pat has some excessive drool after taking his dose. This is weird because Pat doesn't have a problem with drooling at all. After about 20 minutes, it stopped. Pat felt really yucky all day today. I asked if he wanted to stop early and he did not want to do that. He took a 3 hour nap today which is out of the norm for him, but he just feels bad and is very fatigued. No noticeable affect either positive or negative as far as his ALS symptoms.

Overall this first round of OSC has been positive, with mild side effects and a huge unexpected effect of Pat being able to lift his arms (with the two arm lift) to rub his eyes!!!
