    I love your weekly round-ups, Jim — especially your introduction this week to Renée Schuls-Jacobson’s blog. Please keep these coming! (And would you mind terribly if I copy you and do the same?)

    • Thanks for telling your story, Renee. I’m so sorry you have to go through this. But I admire deeply how you are living the best life possible while you recover.
