The Day I've Been Dreading

I've known for sometime now this day was on its way. Now, it has arrived, even quick than I imagined it would. The day has come to say goodbye to the picture blog. Since we got home at the end of August, my life has been a zoo. I 've had to rely on my wife for more and more of my daily needs. I don't like that, but it is true.

Add to that , because of my surgery in November, I have lost my ability to type. I had hoped I would recover that, but I haven't.  If I didn't hadn't watched every word as I typed it, you would have been unable to make any since of what I just typed

When I am speaking, it is even worse. I have to have words that will fill in for the words I can't remember. I've never had trouble using words. If it doesn't clear up Bisexual Buddies Yahoo  and Bisexual Buddies blog spot will have to go too.

It has been an absolute privilege serving you over the past few years. Thank you for all your kindnesses. I hope you'll continue reading and participating in the other too groups. There is no schedule for them, and it makes it easier for me.

I am happy to report that today is the first good day I've had in well over a month. Unless you ever had metastatic cancer you can imagine what it does to you brain.

I still owe you the second  part of "What I've Learned Along the way. I'm just taking a little more time to let the cobwebs clear out.

I must say an enormous thank you to George Starzz for all the year he has helped my giving thousands of pictures to draw from. I couldn't have done it without you George.

  4. I'm home recuperating from my 2nd back surgery. While in hospital I couldn't urinate. I assumed it was from nerve damage in the lower back. The hospital call a urologist. Prostate was swollen and he found a spot. I'm scheduled for a biopsy. He thinks, it it's cancer, it's early stage. I've already been through colon cancer. What's happened to me pales compared to your ordeal. Your attitude is an inspiration. Thank you. All my best goes out to you.

  6. You're the greatest. I wish I could take the disease away. But maybe it will be of some comfort to let you know that, from my own near-death experience, the transition (if it comes to that) is not to be feared. It's not merely an escape from pain; when I died I was instantly freed from pain AND while I was dead I felt great, in a space of light and peace. CPR brought me back and then the pain returned.

  8. Jack,
    We haven't always agreed but I've always respected the way you tried to go about helping people. Who know which is the right way? But you tried to do it as right as you could.

    It's a scary time. I'm glad you're surrounded by loving family and friends. At the end of that long day, that's more important than all the rest.

    Godspeed!

  9. Jack,
    I hope you are doing reasonably well. Please keep in mind that death itself is not a problem.
    I don't know if you have read what any of the NDE (Near Death Experience) researchers have written in the past 40 years. It puts a whole new face on why we don't really need religion: consciousness survives the passage, and the caustic theories espoused by fundamentalists are just so much B.S. As Eben Alexander puts it: "You have nothing to fear. You can do no wrong."
    If you are still able to scan the written word, reading contributions to the NDE literature by people like Raymond Moody, Jeffrey Long, and Eben Alexander should be comforting.
    Best wishes to you in your transition. Luck is not needed!

I deeply regret that I must reinstate the verification process for those who want to leave comments on my blog. This is due to the intolerable amount of spam that spammers are attempting to leave on the blog.

At the same time I am changing settings so that those of you who have a Google Blogger ID or other recognized blogger ID will not have to have your comments moderated. My hope is this will encourage more readers to take the time to comment. The fact is I want to read comments with those of you who disagree with me as well as those of you who agree with me. All I ask is that you keep your comments clean and non-threatening.

The only reason I take the time to write this blog is to spur your thoughts and comments. Please do not let the spammers cause you not to comment. I know entering the verification words and numbers is a pain in the ass, but I hope you will not let the spammers cause you not to comment.

I still very much look forward to hearing from you.

Jack Scott

Anyone can comment on what I write in this blog. Regretfully, the recent amount of spam in my email account as required that I reinstate the word verification process for comments which I personally hate.

But at the same time I have loosened the comment moderation process so that those of you who have a Google Blogger ID or other recognized blogger ID will no longer need to wait for your comment to be moderated. I'm hoping this will tempt you to take the trouble to comment.

The truth is I want respectful comments both from those who agree with me and those who do not. All I as is that you keep comments to the point, clean and non-threatenting.

I look forward to hearing from each of you.

Jack Scott
