Bill Jempty Update
Bill Jempty, who blogs as the Florida Masochist as well as serving as a contributing editor to OTB Sports, is in deteriorating health. As reported previously, he’s battling cancer for the fifth time and has now learned that he will need a heart valve replacement.
How am I feeling? Ok physically, but mentally not as well. If I don’t have the surgery, my aorta will rupture eventually. That would probably kill me, certainly disable me. On the other hand my cancer could get there first. If I got 6 months, I’d really prefer to spend as little time in a hospital.
He’s past the median survival rate for his particular cancer but some live years past that point; one never knows. It’s a lousy situation to be in but there’s not much real choice but to deal with the nearest term problem first and deal with the next as it comes.
Our best wishes to Bill on his recovery.
