Oh Jim, I am so sorry that you got bad news. Damn cancer! You get to a certain age where it is no longer the disease other folks get, and either you are getting it or everyone around you is.

My prayers are with you all as you go through this journey. I hope the chemo is gentle on her.

Lucky for both of us we found each other. I'd do it all again girly.

Good morning, Jim. Iím so glad youíre still going to Florida, and that youíre in charge of fun. Iíve decided to use my morning walk with Jeb as a time to pray for dogs here Ė and their people. Your family is at the top of my list.

A little late in hearing the not so good news, but keeping positive thoughts and sending prayers your way. Attitude is 90%, so MJ is already well down the road in beating this.

Just now catching your update, and sorry to find it's not as good as we wanted. I love your wife's attitude, though, and from what I've heard it will carry her far on the road towards total cure.

I'm glad you're going to Florida, too. The change of scenery will be nice, not to mention getting away from the cold and snow.

Blessings and prayers being sent your way!

I had an aunt that struggled with cancer and her doctor was very supportative of her wish to travel across the country. She made many stops along the way and enjoyed every moment of it. MJ sounds like an amazing woman and it's great to know you'll be in charge of the fun during this new journey of yours. I'm a big believer that life is what you make of it. Wishing you both the best in this new year!
