It’s the time of month when I share what is new on The Way Forward and I remind readers of the various ways they can access this blog, contact me, or make a million dollar donation to my ,I want a big ass home just like Steven Furtick Project.
Thursday, January 30th
I will be gone for the day, so blog comment approval will be delayed. Polly and I are traveling to Fort Wayne to hear Darius Rucker, David Nail, and Eli Young Band. One “positive” of being in a wheelchair is that we often get good seats at concerts. We have floor level seats and we are expecting to have an awesome time. This will be the first country concert we have ever been to. Two years ago, we saw Matt Nathanson in concert, and six years ago, our son’s took us to hear Collective Soul. (I was 50 years old before we saw our first “secular” concert)
Nothing new to report here. My primary care doctor added Tramadol to the pain management regimen I am on. I am now taking Hydrocodone 7.5/750 mg and then 2-3 hours later I take 50 mg of Tramadol. I also take 2 500 mg Naproxen per day. I repeat this cycle throughout the day and this has really helped with the pain spikes. As people with chronic pain know, the narcotics do not take away the pain but they do break the pain cycle and reduce the pain to a level that is tolerable. (on most days)
Polly and I have started drinking an occasional glass of wine. As with most things, due to our fundamentalist past, we are coming late to the party. We are interested in wines that are sweet, red or white. If you have any wine suggestions, please leave them in the comment section. We are definitely uneducated when it comes to alcoholic beverages. (and no, drinking a glass of wine does not causes any problems with the drugs I am on)
Blog Comment Rules Page
I added a Blog Comment Rules page. Hopefully, this page will educate first-time commenters about me, this blog, and the rules for commenting. As I said, hopefully.

Each month, a handful of people make a donation to the Bruce Gerencser Relief Fund. I appreciate each donation, regardless of the size. I view the donations as an act of kindness to me by my friends.
When I started blogging six years ago, I decided I did not want to have advertising on my blog. I don’t blog to make money. I blog because I need to write. Donations are always appreciated, but they will never determine whether I blog.
The donation form is in the sidebar if you would like to make a donation.
As always, thank you for reading The Way Forward. Your kindness and support mean a lot to me, and I know my life is richer because of it.
