From Bill

Hi folks. I am not in a writing mode yet. My friends Linda and Cecil are visiting me in a new rehab called College View in Frederick, MD. Tomorrow I will be starting radiation and chemo. I would thank all my DJ friends from WSHC – Bobbie and Oinkie, Colin Voight and John Case who brought me a wonderful huge tub of Chili.

More updates to come.

Bill is interested in having visitors now!

Bill is now in the Candlewood in Shepherdstown, working on his rehab. He will be going home to his daughter Penny’s house soon. Bill has done pretty well these last three or four days. He is more alert, can stand, walk, and looking forward “to getting out of this place”  soon.

He says he would like to see some of his friends now. I am really pleased that he is feeling up for this. I think it is a very good sign. He is in The Candlewwood at 80 Maddex Rd in Shepherdstown. His cell phone number is 301.467.9607 There are no official visiting hours.

Thank you all for your good wishes and thoughts.

Bill is in Shepherdstown Again!

Hello – This is Bill’s wife again. He keeps saying he get get back on the BLOG but he gets tired and goes to sleep. So I am writing to let you all know that as of yesterday, he at the Candlewood in Shepherdstown. The address is 80 Maddex. I never knew it was here. It is tucked away just off rte 45 opposite the fire house, before you get to the Food Lion.

So he is sleeping alot and resting. The goal for the next two weeks is to do rehab to allow him to build stamina, walk a little, and to get in and out of a car. He is going to be starting radiation on Dec 17th in Frederick, MD. That will weaken  him again. So we are also working on getting him strong with a “super-food” diet.

At the beginning of this nightmare, I was not able to say the words GBMIV  Still can’t say it. Look it up if you wish to know more. However I started looking on the web for information, support sites , ways to get strong before the radiation begins, and other people seem to be able to talk about it. So I guess I can start.

Bill is still wary about the words. He has not started to research it. He has very little stamina and sleeps alot. I keep asking him if he wants visitors, and he says he does not. Maybe give him another day to get used to being here. He will answer his phone. His voice is very soft but he is speech is much improved.
