Go, Go, Go

On top of dealing with everything right now, Life IS CRAZY! It is go, go, go with very little rest in sight. I'm either working hard or playing hard and it all stuff that's been planned. I'm looking forward to having a day to just sit at home and mope. I think there will be time in November! I will be celebrating my grandparents' 60th anniversary with them this weekend. That's a long time. It's pretty much guaranteed that I won't ever see my 60 year anniversary unless I get married this year and then live 60 years longer than I want to! JK
I also found out when I'll be going back to finish my tattoo. They are wanting to try and work me in to the first episode of the next set. I'm not sure what that means yet but I'll let you know when I find out.
Here's a cute clip of Rebecca at the shore house this past labor day.

James...thank you so much for sharing all your memories with us. I do not know you or your wife Katie, but I have learned so much from your blogs and your story. I just wanted you to know that you and Katie have touched the lives of millions of strangers all over the world and have taught people how to love, live for the moment and to go on living. I have read through your entire blog at carepages and I am absolutely speechless after it all. I could and still can feel the love you and Katie have for each other pouring off the pages! I have a small request to ask of you...when you have time and feel up to it, would you mind posting the symptoms that Katie was having prior to diagnosis? The reason for my asking this is so that I myself can be aware and millions of others can be aware of the signs. And although I realize they are not always the same in every person diagnosed...they can atleast be watched out for. Again, this is not something I am pushing you to do...just thought I would ask if that is possible when you feel it is right. Thanks again for sharing your story and teaching us all!

Many, many prayers and thoughts! God Bless!

Prayers from Kansas.

I don't think it's a coincidence that I happened upon your blog...I remember an email through our church about your wife soon after she was diagnosed with cancer. Many times I've wondered what had happened. My dad died March 23, 2006 of complications from pancreatic cancer. He was 58. He lived four months after the official diagnosis. I just wanted to say that I am so very sorry. Thank you for your efforts to increase awareness of pancreatic cancer. This is very inspiring to me.

Hi James,

I came across your blog via the Jennifer Ireland blog. Your story - and your profound love for Kate - have touched me immensely. You are stronger than you know. I hope you're able to find some enjoyment in this holiday season, and that your thoughts of Kate are more wonderful than difficult.

She was a remarkable woman; you certainly have shown yourself to be a remarkable man. Who else could someone with as much spirit as Kate love?

You'll remain in my thoughts and prayers.

I have a question about your blog. Please email me!


Through the worst tragedy I could never imagine, my life has become what it has become. Through this blog, I will continue to tell my story. Some days are good and many are not, but those are the cards I've been delt and I will continue to play my hand until the Lord makes me fold. Also, I hope that you will learn more about Pancreatic cancer and help bring light to this horrible disease so that other victims will be given more time to enjoy life than my precious wife had. Happy reading.
