Thanks for the news Barb. I sure will be hoping that the news continues to get brighter and he gets to come home. I'm glad to hear that the cancer is gone and hopefully he will rebound from all the trauma of late and be right back here entertaining us all with his wit and upbeat attitude. GO JIM

I'm so glad the most recent news is news of improvement. I am praying that improvement will continue, especially as he gets of of the drugs that may have caused the psychosis. Jim has a lot of fans here pulling for him....

So happy to hear this news! Just mention our names to him and tell him how much we care and ask about him. We expect a miracle and for Jim to be posting on here very very soon!!
I knew it was the meds. They had me dying for 3 days and I was
as strong as a horse(just a horse flying through the clouds). Some people just react severly to these drugs and I don't know why the docs and nurses are not more familiar with it! It angers me about them.
Take good care of him. He will get better every day in time for spring!
Sending my most heartfelt good wishes for both you and Jim
Debbie


Partial mandibulectomy and neck dissection 2/3/07. T2NOMO.

My son had a morphine reaction that gave him terrifying hallucinations. I am betting that he'll get better now that the morphine has been discontinued. I hope so. Please add my name to the list of those praying for that funny guy. He has so much spunk and has cheered the rest of us up so often with his good humor and brave approach to this, that now he deserves to draw strength from the rest of us and from our prayers for him.

I just have to say this for Barb,, she read me all of the posts from my cancer family over the telephone. I'm glad she posted as her and my daughter knew exacltly how I was doing daily. Neither of them ever gave up on my making this come back . I owe them both Big Time and sure will have to show it somehow. LOL As long as it doesn't cost too much. Hell, what's
money anyway? I love both those gals. They are very special.


Since posting this. UPMC, Pittsburgh, Oct 2011 until Jan. I averaged about 2 to 3 surgeries a week there. w Can't have jaw made as bone is deteroriating steaily that is left in jaw. Mersa is to blame. Feeding tube . Had trach for 4mos. Got it out April.
