A few people have asked me on an update on my wife’s situation, so I figured I’d share what’s been keeping my attention lately.
WARNING: Personal-type stuff ahead. Your WoW-related content will resume presently.
As long-term readers know, my wife has multiple sclerosis (yes, this is separate from the other medical issues she had last year). We’ve been lucky that the MS has been in remission, but earlier this year that ceased. This time, it’s effectively paralyzed one of her legs. Well, because she’s stubborn, she still tried to get things done around the house, and ended up falling, hitting her head, and getting a concussion. Yay.
So, now instead of going to the middle of nowhere for three weeks on a military exercise, I’ve been working at home to make things more wheelchair-accessible. Thankfully, there’s been no insurance issues, so we’re receiving lots of equipment support (wheelchair, lift for our van, etc). The sheer stress of all the changes, though, has been weary for both of us, as I’ve had to take on all the household responsibilities…oh, and yes, we have a very active 4-year-old.  At least I won’t be out in the field worrying, so that’s one minor benefit.
Once things get settled, I intend to get back to writing more frequently; I’m just stuck at a spot where I don’t have the mental energy to sit down and write the usual overly-researched strategies that are my forte. There’s still a lot I’d like to write about soloing and pet battles, as well as the usual feral things; happily, though, all the really good ferals are holding things down on the forums, so I feel some reassurance in that area. Things will get better…even if I have to do all the laundry myself now. :)

  1. I’ve been playing wow for a while now, but I still read your updates via RSS. Normally i skim them and carry on, but I couldn’t leave this post like the rest. I came here to just say: keep hope alive, brother!

  2. God bless. My prayers are with you and your family.

  3. My mom has MS, she was diagnosed over 10 years ago. It wasn’t as extreme in that it didn’t paralyze her, but has left her very weak and her memory has never been the same either. Her memory was the first thing I noticed, primarily because it effected me (at the time a young teen) whom would get upset that all of a sudden my mom couldn’t remember something I had told her earlier that day.

    The physical part effected her more as she was as stubborn as your wife. Of course I know nothing about your wife, her personality.. however, going off this similar trait, I’d suggest finding any kind of house work that she can do, even if it makes her work out a little bit. My mother is able to at least find some enjoyment in gardening, it works her muscles out and keeps them going. Of course, gardening in the traditional sense may be too much for your wife, or something she doesn’t enjoy.. With a little bit of thinking I’m sure you can take a few chores she may have enjoyed and make it so that she can do it.
