Abby & Jim

We had storms in the area and I ran in to Abby and Jim at the legion. I figured it might be safer for them to hang around here rather than going back to their tent until the storms were over so invited them over. They were here until late and we got to do some shooting before it got dark. Had a good time doing that and then visited after that. Had a good time doing that to. Abby had mentioned in a comment in the last thread that she wished she had tried one of the biscuits with some of Just Me's prickly pear apple jelly on it because she missed doing that at the brunch so I fixed them both up with that. The storm threat passed later on last night so they headed back to the land. They pulled out early this morning to make the long trip back home. Sure enjoyed having a couple more good people down here!

  4. As yall know I have been diagnosed with cancer again. I have been told this will be my third different type, the second I didn't even know was different until Thursday. My problem is the normal course of treatment is ABVD chemotherapy and possibly radiation treatment. With this being my second go around with chemo there is a problem with one of the types of meds I would be given. One of the medicines in my original chemo is same as one that would be in the new one. Problem is you can only have so much of this medicine entered into your body, ever. I have already had over half of that amount with the first, so we would go over with the second. Going over means almost certain heart muscle damage, leading to congestive heart failure. If we went a different direction I would quite likely have leukemia within a few years. Neither one of those sound appealing, so at this time I will not be treated.
    I will continue to live my life as before, but with a slow growing cancer, until a the proper form of treatment is decided on. I am being referred to a blood cancer specialist at UT Southwestern, hopefully some time next week, as I haven't heard from them yet.
    We want to thank everyone again for all the happy thoughts, prayers, smoke signals, etc... They mean so much, again, thank you.

  8. David, it was certainly good to see you again. Thanks for inviting us over! Had a great visit; got to see The Dungeon, listen to some good tunes, shoot a couple cans, learn to roll a smoke, and really enjoyed watching the rain off to the east. Got home fine, but wish I was still in Terlingua.

    Dale, hang in there and do what you gotta do. I continue to wish you well and send good vibes your way!
