As you may have noticed, there has been a dearth of content on my blog, The Reno Signal. This is due to a number of factors, but my health has been the primary reason for my negligence on the part of this place.
Due to a 10-day hospital stay, surgeries and tests, I have accrued about $2,500 in medical bill that I simply do not have the resources to pay.
I am currently suffering from chronic kidney failure, anemia, white blood cell anemia, and a host of complications related to these. Additionally, I also suffer from systemic lupus, which adds more damage to my body.
Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is a test used to check how well the kidneys are working. Fifteen is failure.
I have started a GoFundMe page, asking for help. There I go into a little more detail. Any help will be appreciated.
I plan to get back to blogging. Not sure what I will post yet. A book review here, a music review there. I may even find something around Reno to write about. I need to get back to my Yes album reviews. I also finished Chuck Palahniuk’s new novel Adjustment Day, so a review of that should be coming soon.
This is an article I wrote for the Wild West Shootout 2017 event program about Bishop Manogue High School. The Wild West Shootout is a basketball competition among eight high schools, mainly in the western part of the United States and is held in Reno, Nevada.
It raises awareness and funds for the Sierra Kids Foundation, which provides help for children with autism and their families. They are tied into the University of Nevada, Reno’s autism program. My first grandson is on the spectrum, so I’m very grateful for what they do.
