We got a new place!

 

    After a month of looking we found a place in Medford that will take our Juno. 3 bedroom 2 bath fully fenced house on a nice street. It's only a few miles from Rogue Valley Medical Center where Donnie is being treated every day for the next 5 more weeks. We finally got a break, and it came at a good time. A bit expencive but beggers cant be choosers! 

    Tomarrow we start looking for all the stuff we all take for granted, a bed, dishes, blankets, towels, couches, everything and anything that makes up a home we need. Sounds fun, but it's a bit overwhelming to be honest. Blessed to have a place this close to Christmas to spend with the kids and grandkids. 

 

      Happy Holidays fellow gamers, best of wishes!

Hey All !!

   Just thought I would check in and do a much needed update for all those interested.

 

    Like I said we found a House. After feeling we weren't ever gonna find a nice place that would also take or 80Lb Shepard Juno, we finally did and it's a nice one. We are now 10 minutes from the Hospital where my son Donnie is being treated. I see him every day! They live 50 minutes in Yreka California and I live { Now } in Medford Oregon. He is treated here everyday with radiation and he also is taking high doses of Chemo and Steroids. You all know he has rapidly gotten worse and nothing there has changed. He is now 8 Days into an intense 6 weeks treatment schedule. It's looking like this will be the last Christmas we have with him. Wrapping my head / our head around such a grimm reality it quite hard, but we haven't given up hope that's for sure!!! We can hardly make out any words most days that he says, he's now blind in one eye, and almost deaf too. 40 Days ago he was riding his motorcycle complaining about how cold it was getting, it's just crazy how aggressive this tumor is. He can no longer feed himself either and can't walk but a few steps, if at all. So he's already wheelchair bound too. I'm not telling you this to make you feel sorry for us, or to shock you guys. I feel those that have jumped on board and ridden this ride with us deserve to know how it's going. So many of you guys have helped in many ways and we are grateful for the friendships! I know soon his wife will no longer be able to handle him, and my wife and I will attempt to take over his day to day.

 

    Ok, not everything is so horrible, like I said we have a house. I love my new laptop. It's a MSI GS65 with the gtx1070 and 16 gigs ram and man can it game. I'm typing this now on it and I'm grateful to have been able to buy it. I have now been in the house for 3 nights. I didn't have a place to sit until today at 11am when my wonderful couch and love seat combo arrived. So far we have dishes somewhat, the couch and love seat, and a queen bed and that is it. Having the treatment everyday kinda makes it tough to actually shop or think about our selves at all. After he's done we it's usually 4pm'ish and it's draining. This Sunday my other son will be here and his kids for the week. Everyone knows we aren't furnished and their all bringing mattresses and bedding etc to make the stay tolerable. This will be the first time he has seen his brother and it's going to be really hard on him. My youngest Daughter will also be up Christmas day so most of my kids will be around this holiday season. Funny, I don't even own a TV yet. I'm gonna go buy a cheap 50 inch TV and put it in the living room to stream things like Netflix and Amazon Prime to so we will have something. I also got INTERNET !!! It's Spectrum and it's 100mbps a far cry from the 3mbps the Hotel had. I have quite a few games to play now. I downloaded Forza 4 and all the dlc stuff I had on Xbox on the laptop and plan on playing a bit after I type this. I honestly don't really get into gaming more than an hour before I started losing concentration and thinking about my son again. I bought a nice entertainment center but it won't be here for another 12 days, and a nice dining room table also wont be here for 2 weeks. Wrong time of the year to be buying furniture and finding it also in stock...lol In a few weeks I'll have the place to put a PS4 Pro and Xbox One x again and some of you online.

 

    Thanks to you guys, my online family. Your appreciated as i have told you. I pop in to here and there to get away and appreciate the forum so much. I hope you all have an incredible Holiday season this year, an amazing Christmas and please hold your loved ones tight. 

 

                            Thanks s much Glenn & Barbara and Juno {The Dog}

@HardAct - please check the PM I sent you yesterday.

I did friend, sorry.

 

I slept hard first time with the wife after I updated the thread. I was going to play Forza but I slept better than I have in over a month last night!

 

I'll call mom and get that sorted out as she wanted to send the thing out soon. I haven't been following it, sounds weird buy it's not the first or second thing on my mind. Stressing with Donnie and the Insurance Company is taking a daily toll that's hard to explain. I really appreciate all the help and kind words and many of you need personal thanks and I want to get to it, I love being a part of this community and am grateful this site exists for me to get away here and there!

Merry Christmas Everyone . . . .

 

    We are in our new house, we have a couch and a recliner and a 50 inch Samsung NU8000 and we are able to stream Netflix to that now., and Amazon Prime Video! All is good as we have our youngest Son here for Christmas but weren't able to see Donnie today. He was supposed to come up but that didn't happen. My youngest Daughter will be up for the day tomarrow all day, we will all get to see Donnie at the hospital during his treatment. So not a perfect day, but I'll take what I can. Of course my Oldest Daughter is AWOL in Washington state doing well enought we hope.

 

I hope you all have an amazing day and new year, I really really do.

 

From all of us here Merry Christmas &Happy Holidays. . . 

 

Glenn & Barbara and Juno

 

PS: I went into our local Best Buy to pick up the TV and Xbox One X's were on sale for 399.99!! I was like holy shit, I had a 45 dollar Best Buy gift card that I had been carrying forever, plus 95 dollars in Reward Zone Points and I just could not pass it up. I bought a Battlefield V limited edition Xbox X for just a dad under 275.00 and it came with Battlefield V Ultimate Edition too. So I have the following downloaded.

 

Battlefield V

Mortal Kombat

Forza Horizon 4

Black Ops 4

Red Dead Redemption

 

That's been enough to keep the grand kids gaming oh and my oldest Grandson got Diablo 3 Ultimate Edition, so we will be playing that tonight. I haven't gotten a chance to play the console yet, but look forwards to running into some of you soon online!

Really glad you're getting settled in your new place. Especially since the holidays are here. The updates about your son sound very rough. Keep hanging in there.

   Good Morning My Fellow Gamers again . . .

 

   Haven't updated you all in awhile, thought I'd catch you all up a bit. My son isn't failing as quickly as he seemed to be the last week or so. This is good new, but he is obviously in bad shape. He now has only 10 more radiation treatments left. The tumor symptoms aren't getting much worse and a few things are actually a bit better. He can stand up better on his own though he is quite shaky. He doesn't walk at all without help and even then it's just a few feet. So wheelchair all the time, and he does wear a patch on his right eye to help with severe double vision. His right side from the head to his foot is numb and that's not going to get better. I say this to put into perspective that though it all sounds horrible, and it is, it's not getting much worse like it was every day. So radiation and daily Chemo  is helping and it seems like the Tumor has stopped it's rapid growth at least and maybe even shrunk a bit putting less stress on his head and eyes, etc. He is still obviously Terminal and that word I have grown to hate. This will take his life, but he is still with us, can hold a conversation though it's slurred a bit. After the 10 radiation treatments he will be done, and will only have Chemo 2 weeks on and 3 weeks off for awhile.

 

   We have settled into our new home {a rental} but furnishing it has been a bit difficult. Every time we go out for something we are overwhelmed with the task of replacing all the essentials that a home has that we all take for granted. Our insurance will nowhere close cover what we lost and it has taken this long to actually realize just what that means. Spending money is a bit hard to do, knowing just what all we need. No do not get me wrong, we have now replaced our bedroom set, have a new NU8000 TV in there too. We have an amazing new living room set and we are picking up a new NU8000 65" TV to go in there today. That said the house as a whole is so empty. All the things that made our home a home just seem unrepeatable. I sure miss my gaming room where I could go and hide and get away from life stresses. Having my son as sick as he is keeps me a bit paralyzed in a sense. Hard to explain. We are slowly moving forward and we have a great relationship my wife and I, but losing our home, our Town. our Jobs, and having a Terminal Son with Cancer is most days just too damned much!

 

   I have been looking for a PS4 Pro but I'm waiting  for one that I feel I'm getting a deal at least. Maybe a 50 dollar off somewhere 349.99 ish? That;s just so not important but I do still love gaming and am looking forward to a day soon where I can actually relax and enjoy some gaming. I have my Xbox One Battlefield V edition but haven't even played more that 25 minutes in a single day yet. Looking forward to Resident Evil 2 Remake more than anything else I can think of!! I want to build a 2080Ti gaming PC too this year but will wait for a great deal on the card somewhere around 900'ish and then I need everything else that goes with it. For now I have a great laptop anyways so there is that. 

 

   Hope all of you had a great holiday season and are excited for the new year. Thanks for everything friends, take care of each other the best you can, looking forward to also Finisjing some of you in the new Mortal Kombat 11 !! See you all around . . .

Plz look past my grammar the best you can, I d try!!

Very very sorry to hear about your friend, so tired of all this Fucking Cancer Shit! I hope your friends son gets better, I truly do man. Keep me updated if youd like. This is a good forum to talk shit out in too, even privately, I have found it a gift lately to just read and interact with some great folks and take my mind off the horrid shit this life has thrown at me as of late!
