To update everyone, my father in-law is in a nursing home on a secured wing for dementia and alzheimer's patients. He has good days and not so good days. He is really at a higher level than all the other patients. He doesn't remember being in the hospital now, even though he was there almost a month. But he knows everyone. Last time they weighed him, he was 98 pounds. He is 5'10'. My wife's mom is not able to take care of him, because she is not able to get around well herself.

Wolfe, I know you're trying to get as much help in with the time you have remaining there. Keep it up.

I found out that my new shrink has a sense of humor....
Wolfe that was hilarious! From what you have said about Greg I can picture him up in Heaven laughing so hard his chest hurts too.

I knew you had not lost your sense of humor and I'm glad. You have an evil mind.

I will continue to pray for you and your family. You have been a great help to Wolfe and she told me that again today.

Thank you for saying that. I really don't feel like I've been much help since she got back. I don't have any more ideas for writing assignments. But she can reread what she wrote and our responses to them. She's over the hump now. Aren't you, Wolfe?

That was a funny line.

Sounds like we need to keep up the prayers for both of them.

Wolfe, I know you're trying to get as much help in with the time you have remaining there. Keep it up.
I'm trying. Right now it looks like I've only got a few weeks left and that scares the crap out of me.

Me? Evil?

I can picture Greg laughing at that too. And probably nodding his head!

I just had made the comment to her that I missed you in here, but knew your family issues have to take priority

I'm surprised you don't have any more ideas. Even my new shrink made a comment about that a couple weeks ago and wondered what you might pull out of your hat next. He meant it in a good way, he can tell me you were a huge help to me too. And it's much easier now to read old threads, thanks to a certain engineer.

I think I'm past the worst of it, my shrink agrees. He thinks I'm on the right track in dealing with what happened and the aftermath, just way behind. I was talking to him today about being scared of what's going to happen now and he admitted he'd concerned too. He thinks on the psychological side I should be OK, the VA does have shrinks used to dealing with PTSD, and that's a lot of what I still have to deal with. The physical side is going to be harder to deal with, but hopefully I can get physical therapy at home. Otherwise all they'll probably do for me is give me my pain meds every month. They'll have to do that anyway, but I want the chance to keep improving, too.

Well, I may just have to think of something. It may be after you get back to the states. It may have to be given in person, though.

Yes you Wolfe.I have known you were evil for many years and that part of you did not change.

I understand why you are afraid but I hope you are also looking forward to being in your home again to stay. You are missing a lot of your life staying over there in that war.

Promises, promises.

Yeah, I'd really hate that.

Maybe, but it's a lot easier being over here. Plus all the reasons I've talked about before. Skidoo think I'm not evil, guess he's misled...

OK, so you'd have Crazy_Wolfe and the nurse with bats and guns at your house at the same time. Maybe I'm not the only one who's nuts.......

Saw my doc, shrink and physical terrorist today, made for a long day. I slept for a while a bit ago and just woke back up. Instead of talking much I'm going to try to go back to sleep. I'll talk more tomorrow.

It's the medical care plus you're not having to face the fear of "What Now?"

Cool. We'll go to the gun range and then the batting cage.

I hope you got a little sleep, anyway. Maybe you can get a nap today, but please, please, please, don't forget the Xanax.

Don't know if you're read back much, but you should have been here a couple years ago. Reading back I can see how hard I tried to only come in here when I could write coherently, but I can still tell. I was . Still am, but not so bad.

So true. Over here tha "What now?" is pertty much limited to what my shrink or physical terrorist might do today, and what size rockets are going to be thrown at the base this time

Probably not even close.
Not sure which way you mean it, but she's known me for 20 years and has spent a pretty good bit of time around me, she's got the advantage here.

Mmmmmm..... could be.
Guess I better make plans to get down your way then. That is, after those fires are put out. I sure hope you and your's are nowhere near that.

Cool. We'll go to the gun range and then the batting cage.
That would be a good time for me to stay at the house and keep little Emily company. Not that I need an excuse to want to see that little cutie!

I hope you got a little sleep, anyway. Maybe you can get a nap today, but please, please, please, don't forget the Xanax.
Mandy has forbidden me to so much as lay down in the same room with her without a Xanax in me, and she's got the claws to back that up. She gets launched enough even with it. A nap didn't happen today, but I've already slept a couple hours tonight and am going to try again. Wish me luck, I've got a lot on my mind and my chest is making it's usual fuss about everything.

No, I'm not near the Bastrop fire, although our preacher's parents' house was destroyed in it. We are having cooler temperatures, but we need rain bad. That Bastrop fire is the worst I have ever heard about as far as losing property. Some people have lost their lives, as well.

Here are some pics of it:

Okie Memorial Area

In this one you can see our state capitol building in the foreground.

She actually lives about 2 1/2 hours from us. We get to see her this weekend, because it's her brother's fifth birthday. We haven't seen her in a month. Too long.

I hope you were successful getting sleep. Tell your chest I said to quit *****ing and moaning. I'm sure that will help.

Wolfe you are not crazy! You know the difference between psychotic and crazy. You also know I'm the only person here allowed to call you crazy.

You have said very little for a few days. Why are you clamming up?

It never hurts to try. Hopefully one of these days it will listen.

Those pictures of the fire look so awful. I will pray for everyone affected by it. I wish I could send some rain your way.

Please check in here and say hello at least. It would be even better if you would talk to us.
