Morning Manuel and Mates to follow. Can't believe it is the first day of fall!
So as you know we had the big appointment yesterday but I'm afraid the news was not good. There will be no more scheduled appointments, no more treatments of any kind, the lymphoma has become too aggressive to do anything about it, so the Dr is arranging for palliative care at home.
He believes James has weeks, not months left, so all we can do is make him as comfortable as possible.
James is just happy to be at home and not in the hospital. He still says he will fight it and prove them wrong, and will go another cruise one day.....

Default Friday 22nd. First Day of Fall

Good morning from Minneapolis. Looks to be a beautilful day in Minnesota. We plan to go for a drive to my home town.

Donna, I can only agree with Manuel and wish James well . . .

We had tough day with my mother yesterday but took the sting oujt of it with a lovely dinner at a restaurant called Manny's. If you ever go go there for dinner.

Early tomorrow, we have a small party for my mother to attend. Then it's to the airport and home.

A restaurant with a name like that, has to be good.

Good morning. Not much planned for me today.

Donna, hope all goes well for James and you. It is definitely hard times.

Unless I hear otherwise Bruce will be home from the Keys sometime tomorrow.

All have a great day.

A sad day for one Cruisemates is a sad day for all of us here. My prayers are with James and Donna. Words cannot describe Donna's strength and devotion.

Another hot summer day here on the first day of fall. This weekend is suppose to be our hottest one yet.

So sad to know of the destruction of the Caribbean and the many lives that have been affected by the 2 catastrophic hurricanes......and then there is the earthquake in Mexico....so sad.

All I can say is: That sucks. I hope his last days can be as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. I also truly hope that he can prove them wrong and take that cruise. My heart goes out to both of you.

Take care,
Mike

Oh, Donna! Sending blessings for you and James for pain-free time for James. Please take care of yourself, along with James, and remember that we are ALL thinking of you two! His spirit is wonderful; hoping it continues and he succeeds at his wish!
