Checking In & Jim's latest C-Scan

Hi Dear EC Friends,

I needed to take a break from the list, but have checked in occasionally. I am saddened by the loss of so many brave friends, and so many newly diagnosed. It is unfortunately the way of this beast called esophageal cancer.

Jim had his most recent catscan at 16 weeks, one year from his surgery, and it is NED. We are truly grateful, yet hold our breath each time. Jim is very thin and works on keeping his weight at 158. He is 6 ft tall and has lost about 60 lbs since this all began. He is getting stronger.

You are all in my daily prayers and I will continue to check in. I have been working on taking care of myself after being on the roller coaster from Hell last year.
