June 2013

It’s been awhile since I have written an update on here, so please forgive me. My own health issues have kept me from getting on the computer as often as I used to, having had a mini-stroke Feb 1st, as well as increasing back & hip pain. I will try to do better, I promise.

Wilson is much more frail than he was before his brain surgery last year. He can’t walk very far, so we must always have the wheelchair in tow so he can sit down when he’s tired. Also, he is not comfortable with the noisy traffic or people passing by on the sidewalk any more, so he is reluctant to go outside very often these days. We are both in danger of becoming complete hermits! However, we have had visitors come by now and then, which usually cheers him up. I’m always happy to put him on the phone when people call, even though he isn’t able to say much. He still loves to hear his friends’ voices, and smiles thru their whole call.

Here is a photo I took of him a couple of weeks ago. When I read what it says on it, he laughed out loud. It’s just a shame he refused to smile when I took the picture, though. He is so stubborn, the minute I suggested he keep smiling, he stopped. Typical Wilson.

I plan to get someone to help put a “Subscription” button on here from Paypal soon, so people can subscribe and donate a small amount monthly. The Trust has been getting quite low, which worries me. Without it, we would have no phone, internet, cable, or supplies for his care. I promise to get someone to help me with it very soon so perhaps people could subscribe by the time his birthday rolls around July 25th.

Thanks for reading this, and continuing to care about Wilson. I read everything to him that you write, so feel free to keep in touch.

    I wish you all the best. I admire Mr Wilson’s work and have collected a lot of it over the years.
    He is an exceptional artist and I am sure a very interesting guy. My grandfather recently had a stroke and his slow recovery and care have been very taxing so I have some idea of what you are going through. I know it must be very tough. Mr Wilson is fortunate to have someone to help him through these times.
