Jim,

Take it easy on the post Tx promises. I made a lot and most you will wish you hadn't made when you are your old normal self again. I speak from painful experience on this issue. My wife has this one letter I wrote to her, obviously all doped up on something and wouldn't stand up in a court of law, that she pulls out occasionally to torment me. LOL

LOL David,, I sure understand the statements made while spaced out. Hell, I even saw pink elephants for a couple of days. Ihope I never have that experience again. LOL Ont thing that does burn me , I listed my house for sale 2 days before surgery. Apparently the house was shown. I am missing a 32 degree Masonic Ring and a Jules Jurgenson Wrist Watch with 20 diamonds. I don't mind the watch, but the ring is not only valuable, but has sentimental value to me as well. Old dummy here left them on the kitchen table. I already made a police report after making sure they weren't in my safe or elsewhere. I'll call Ins tomorrow. I have lost a total of 54 lbs so far. Look like a fish that has been out of water for 2 weeeks. my nose area is healing up fast and I hope the rest does too.


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.

Hey there Jim!
So happy to read that you are doing better.....I was feeling a bit anxious like the rest of your friends here. At least now they (at the hospital) will have a better understanding of your some of your sensitivies to drugs.
Sorry about your jewelry, especially your ring...maybe someone, or you, put it somewhere 'safe' and it will show up soon.
Again, I am so happy to see you on and fighting!!
Lots of Love,
Donna

Where are you gonna live when you sell the house? Did you call the realtor? I would hold them responsible for the loss. They are not supposed to let clients wander around the house picking up whatever valuables appeal to them. I'd carefully check the rest of the house also. If they were brazen enough to pick up something in plain sight, they may have been brazen enough to steal other stuff also. Does any of this jewelry have inscriptions so it can be identified when it shows up at the pawn shop? That really s..ks. I'd make certain that realtor didn't get a dime in commission from me.

Take care,
Eileen

Hey Jim, Good to see you back. I also would hold the realtor responsible for the ring, that stinks.

Great to hear from you Jim. Have not checked the site for around a week now and went straight to "feeling terrible" to see how you were going. Maybe the topic name can be changed soon to something more positive now wink

Jim.

I think you will have an up hill fight at best if you think the Realtor will accept responsibility for those 2 items unless you or someone made the Realtor aware of their position in the house in writing sent Certified Mail. Not implying anything but you can imagine that anyone could claim that anything was in their house at the time of a showing, say $1,000,000 ring. Your best and probably only viable recourse is homeowners insurance and I would get a police report number to back it up.

CHEMO BRAIN, we all had/have it. I guess your lucky you didn't press the issue to far or you might have been put in the slammer and would have ended up someone's b%*$h.
