lifestyles years after the vims made diem ill
“The muscles and the nerves that have compensated all these yens ate just getting tired and wearing out,” Mason said. “The key to dealing with it is rest There are no medications or cure. The main thing is rest and changing yow lifestyle, and dint can be hard.”
Mason, who is on the board of the Texas Polio Survivors Association, started a local support group to help the survivors and family members with the lifestyle changes. She said it can be difficult on the entire family when an individual am no longer do a lot of the activities they previously had, and support is needed.
“What we do is kind of support each other in whatever we're dealing with at the time,” Mason said. “It helps to talk about it”
Mason said great advances have been made from 60 years ago, when a lot of people were severely ill and dying from polio. Mason said she had actually taken three of die four polio vaccination injections required, and was only a month or so away from her last injection. She said right after she became ill with polio, doctors developed the “sugar cube” form of vaccination winch was much more effective.
“Thank God we have (the a vaccinations) because so many people died arid suffered from it and now there aren’t as many dying and effected,” Mason said.
The polio vaccination, as well as all other vaccines required by the state are being offered free of charge on Saturday at Schlitterbahn . Waterpark. Children getting ’ immunized receive a hee pass to the

Comal County Public Health nurse Shel McWilliams said some parents are very “conscientious” about getting their children immunized, whale others delay it until “they’re forced tea” She said many parents wait until the child is ready to register for achroite get the vacillations, and this is risky.
“I think foe dang is people just don’t understand dot these are real illnesses and not something out of a fiction or history book,” McWilliams said. “These are dangerous.”
Mason said even with the advancements in immunizations, die threat of polio has not been eradicated from our society. She said Mexico has a large number of cases, and it would not be difficult for the virus to appear m the United States. For that reason, she said, she would not take the risk of not havmg a child immunized.
“I wouldn’t delay because I have seen what it can do to yow life. It can totally change yow life,” she said. “To be a parent and see your child go through that, I wouldn’t want to do it”

“I always felt home in that area,” Wall nid. “It goes back to the forces and spirits. I had never been there before, but it was like I was there in a past life.”
While he was writing a novel one winter night IO years ago at his tanchhouse, Wall said a mysterious monk paid a visit to his home.
“It was right out this window,” Wall said as he pointed at the window above the couch he was resting on. “I was sitting by the fireplace. I had been typing late and it was cold. I was struggling through it. So, I got a cup of coffee and sat down.
“Then I see him as plain as day. He wore a gray, brown robe. Around him was a illuminated pinkish color. For whatever reason he wanted me to see him. Once he realized that I saw him he went directly west in front of the house. The dogs were still
