Saturday Update

My computer and e-mail (swilder@ccccd.edu) are working again. I’ve moved into the new apartment. (Pics tomorrow!) To obtain my new address see the right side of this blog. For my new land line, call my cell phone. My new apartment does not have an…

Computer Virus…Better It Than Me

My computer crashed a few days ago, so I’ve been unable to check e-mail or update my blog until just now. Actually, I think CCCCD must be updating their system because I can’t even check my e-mail tonight. The problem is usually resolved by morning, so…

New Digs

I discovered on Sunday that I have the opportunity to move into an apartment that overlooks a lake here at the apartments. There are many aspects of this apartment with a view that I think will help my recovery. For one, I’ll be able to comfortably h…

Garage Sailing

This morning while it was still nice (though somewhat muggy all the same,) Kirk and I went Garage “Sailing” in the area. We found about three garage/yard sales, but only two were worth a visit. At one, I made a huge find: four Fire King bowls with ha…

A Beautiful Day

There was something really beautiful about today. I was so down on Wednesday. Even called to ask a friend in this area to pray with me over the phone. My counts were all so good, but I was feeling terrible. The only word that I can think of to desc…

Correction and Notice

In my last entry, I said that I would start being alone Sunday night through Thursday afternoons next week–the week of July 15th. That was incorrect. It actually begins the week of July 22nd. What was I thinking? Jacob will not go back to Dallas u…

Gone home

You can tell when someone goes home from a situation like this, no more updates! I’ve been wanting to write an update, but honestly, there’s a lot of living out there to do. A 14 mile bicycle ride on a wonderful wooded trail, a 1000′ gain hike in the C…

Cat Scan Wednesday

It appears as if next week will be the beginning of my “home alone” experience in this phase of my treatment. Kirk can come Thursday, but he will leave and take Jacob with him on Sunday. That means I’ll be here taking care of things on my own Mondays…

Day 33: Missing Kirk Again

The two units of blood I received Friday must have worked because today I do feel more like myself. I’m on the last hour of my home infusion of Magnesium…usually the hardest part. Toward the last hour of the infusion the Magnesium makes me feel hot…

Two More Units Friday

Since I felt well enough to travel a little bit, we all took a trip to Tomball to see my aunt Daphne today. She’s living in an assisted living complex there, but may have to move because of a recent incident. She’s taking hydrocodone for pain, and I …
