Allie...I have a meeting with my Austin oncologist tomorrow to just check in on my monthly blood tests and see how I am doing without chemo.

 

Doing better and coming back slowly but up and dressed and into the truck everyday...almost feels normal. Home in the afternoon to nap for several hours but the naps are getting shorter.

 

I went to the Baylor clinic in Houston to see a thoracic specialist a week ago to get a second opinion. Wore my brocade vest...button cover tie..cowboy shirt...garters...and hat. You don't get a second chance to make a first impression....lol... He ran tests...scans with contrast...x-rays etc..

 

On the 30th I go back for more Pet scans with radio isotopes for better definition and he meets with me at 2PM then on Wednesday he will give me final tests...consult with others then give me their opinion on Thursday. I am guardedly optimistic as many cancers look and do not act alike. This is not like trying to draw to an inside straight but it is a bit of a long shot. It will just be good to have this second opinion no matter what. Thanks for all the prayers...Jim

For Jim's trip to see the doctor in Houston this week.

 

Psalm 32:7

Thou art my hiding place;

thou shalt preserve me from trouble;

thou shalt compass me about with

songs of deliverance. Selah

 

 

You Are My Hiding Place by Selah

 

 

Lyrics

You are my hiding place

You always fill my heart

With songs of deliverance

Whenever I am afraid

I will trust in You

 

I will trust in You

Let the weak say

I am strong

In the strength of the Lord

 

You are my hiding place

You always fill my heart

With songs of deliverance

Whenever I am afraid

I will trust in You

 

I will trust in You

Let the weak say I am strong

In the strength of the Lord

I will trust in You

More good news bad news. The original cancer tumor was on my neck and is now completely gone. No tumor. Lymph glands in neck back to normal. Tests showed I still have lung cancer in right, lung in two spots. Tumors are holding in one area and have shrunk in another.

 

This is good news but I guess I was hoping for more. Dr at Baylor Clinic said he thought if I could handle the chemo I might have a year or more if the cancer did not spread to my brain, pancreas, liver, or kidneys. Since it is in my lymph nodes it can spread without notice. I get a PET scan every 5 months to see if it has spread. So far so good. Always a tense moment when I go for the reading of that scan. As of 4 days ago I only have the two tumors in right lung. He scaled it as stage 4 terminal the same as my oncologist in Austin.

 

I reserved two rooms for EOT for next year before I went to Houston...that is my response to all of this...lol... someone needs to shoot last and I am good at it. But I did shoot 7 stages clean this year..Yeehaw. Thanks one and all for your prayers that have taken me through this darkness and into the light. God bless you....Jim

Marshal Kidd invited me to go with him to the Plum Creek SASS shooting event today near Lockhart, Tx which is about 35 miles south of Austin. Great group of people and a very enjoyable event.

 

Well, who was the first person we saw at the registration area?

Our good ole buddy, Jim No Horse.

Jim looked very good today. At least before the shoot. It was really humid & hot and I was really worn out by stage five.

Don't know if Jim shot all 5 stages. I hope he left early.

 

Anyway...Jim looked a lot better than he did at EOT. His color looked healthy and he was smiling.

Let's pray specifically that the two remaining tumors in his right lung disappear and that he is fully healed.

 

P.S. I looked for Hoss. They said he has attended in the past, but wasn't there today. Maybe we will meet at Old Fort Parker one day.

Jim,

How are you feeling after the Plum Creek match?

How many stages did you shoot?

Just so you'll know... I shot last, so you didn't have to.

I doubt Ole Jim No Horse "looked very good". On his best days he was nothing better than.....well this is a family forum, so won't go there!!! I'm glad he was out shooting though.

 

I'll be at DOFP in October. Sent in my registration a couple if weeks ago. Looking forward to meeting you there.

Help us all if we are counting on Hoss to defend us ...maybe with that deodorant he uses. I did not see the Hoss either...I only shot one stage then got a call my little dog had a stroke so I packed it in to get home to my wife and the little fellow. He seems better today but is getting up in years....Thanks all.....Jim

Feeling good, up and dressed and out every morning in the pick up and smiling. Take the two Dobermans to the Casita to run in the goat pen.

 

Medically I have my right eye lens filling with fluid...two eye doctors in last three days...another tomorrow. Might be Lymphoma....worst possible case. Might be a lymph node not draining properly...depends on what is slowing that drainage and allowing the fluid build up.

 

Truth is I don't want to dwell on the newest medical No Horse mystery.If it is lymphoma I could lose that eye, If it is the node not draining they may be able to reconstruct that lens.

 

Anyway I am feeling good generally, up and around each day. My life is in the hands of a kind and loving God who has given me a year and a half extra to enjoy the many blessings my wife and angel Karen and I have been showered with. I still pray for complete restoration but my life is in his hands.

I thank all of you once again for your many prayers and hope that you all thank God for your many blessing daily not the least of which is your good health, family and friends. Thank you...Jim

Hey Pard, praying the eye is just a simple thing, easy to cure.

 

I'm coming to Dripping Springs Saturday to shoot the final match at Flat Creek. Hope to see you there.
