Don't Tell Jim

DeBary, FL.

71 deg. overcast, no wind.

Forecast = Mostly cloudy. High near 80F. Winds NNE at 10 to 20 mph.

Don't tell Jim I'm telling you this cause I'm sure he doesn't want it out, but he hasn't been feeling too well lately.

Actually, it started way back last spring. He had this nagging cough and some chest congestion that he just couldn't shake. He's never been one for running to the doctor, so he just shrugged it off and we left for our trip up to Illinois for the summer.

Well, throughout the summer it's gradually gotten worse and by the middle of the summer he was having trouble doing very much as he couldn't catch his breath after doing just minor activity. By the time we left Rantoul, he was having trouble hooking up Nora to the back of Big RED and by the time we arrived back down here in Florida, he'd have to stop and rest a couple times to catch his breath during the hook-up or un-hooking procedure.

I'm telling you this because, to be honest, Linda and I are kind of worried and I think Jim is too. The other day, Laura and Lindsey stopped by and Laura helped Linda find a doctor that would take new patients so that he could go and see what's going on.

He has an appointment on Monday, the 23rd and I'm pretty sure that once he sees the doctor, chest x-rays will be ordered, so I don't know if we'll really know anything until that's accomplished.

I'll be sure to update you as soon as I find anything out.

Did you know that today is "National Peanut Butter Fudge Day"?



  1. Oh geez! Hopefully it's nothing serious, maybe Pneumonia? Prayers heading your way!

  2. We're both thinking of you Jim. Take care, and get well soon.

  3. We hope you get fixed up and feeling better very soon!
