From one of the linked articles: "Don't run to the Internet. In the midst of your initial shock and fear, the worst thing you can do is jump onto the World Wide Web."  In hindsight from a few personal experiences, I have to wonder just how one has the strength not to do so in this day in age?  Granted there is plenty of misinformation out there but how can one resist the temptation to find out all they can? from reliable sources?  Wouldn't that be taking ownership?

As for simply deciding that we have exceeded our warranty date - just how many of us did things in our younger years with a total disregard for any type of warranty.  Maybe for some, that makes us want to live life fully on our terms and make sure that we have taken full advantage of the "options package" we were loaded with?



I ran to the internet....total waste of time!

Thank You espiritu and everyone else who emailed, pm and posted.

Deb and I appreciate your support thru these difficult times. At first I felt cursed knowing prognosis vs. a sudden heart attack. Now we feel blessed knowing the outcome and estimated timeframe. It has given me the opportunity to get all affairs in order. Deb and I still have plenty of time to become closer , valuing each other, so all is good.

Thanks again, Jim n Deb

Just an FYI update on Jim:

He had his first chemo treatment on Thursday and while I am unclear on his actual chemo schedule, I believe that he will receive the next two treatments one week apart on Thursdays. They did give him what he described as a steroid cocktail to minimize nausea for 48 hours. When I talked to him today, he was past the 48 hour period and has felt no signs of nausea so far.

I know this is a tough topic but it might be beneficial to Jim to receive some PM's or direct emails with words of encouragement?

Jim had his second "chemo session" today and related some clarification of his chemo schedule. As near as I got the story, he is on a once per week three week cycle for every four weeks. After the first four months, they will take a break to do an evaluation to see just what effect these treatments are having?

So far so good on the negative nausea effects. Jim asked the doctor today why he wasn't feeling it and the doctor speculated that it was because he was in good shape.

A great surprise and morale booster when Spencer and his bride Ceci came to Casa Grande for 3 day visit.  Great company, conversation and food had by all.










I proudly wore my "Ajijic Union" futbol shirt.  Thumbs up

You will look good Jim. I think we almost gave you that look one time at AguaMilpa.......jaja. Just buy a lot of razors and shaving cream.  

Stay strong and keep a positive attitude amigo!!!!!! There are a lot of people rooting for you. You still have a date with some more Bass. If you are feeling up to it fly down in June and we'll hit the lake. You can stay at my place if yours is rented.

August or September works for me and I am sure the other boys can be easily persuaded. Just let me know when you can. Humberto would be thrilled to see you.

Thanks Bob for your kind offer.......I have 13 more chemo treatments scheduled.    Would love to book a HOORAH farewell trip with you, Mike, sunfan, ROOF BOB, and anyone else that can make the trip.   Looks like late August/September.  My son Jeremy is all in for the trip, and would love to see Humberto and Irma, my favorite hosts over the past 7 years one last time.  Thanks for the head shaving tips.....no nicks today, LOL.  

My Oncologist tells me with any "LUCK" I should see 2015.....just praying and hoping.  Gotta tell ya, when you are going to lose something as valuable as life.......every moment is a treasure.

Talk soon my friend,
Jim W

Jim, I especially love the middle picture. What a blessing to have Jeremy there.
I hope you do get to make that fishing trip. It would be great!
Thank you for sharing this journey with us. I wish all we humans could learn sooner that every moment is a treasure.
