Ok guys and girls Ed can only make but one post like this, with this temp borrowed Laptop. Pop-up hell. plus the electric plug keeps falling out and I am not familiar with Lap Tops yet. I have an old one that I used for tuning on EFI stuff, so this is different world for me and is really slow.

I made this post for SpeedTalk and for Yellow Bullet and also posted at Racng Junk. I saw that some of you were interested in me and what is taking place in my life now. This is first time I am able to actualy get online. I am enjoying it.

Ed direct from Hospital Bed in Dallas Texas. lol

Post subject: Update - As of 8/31/08


Ok guys - I went and Visited with Ed who is still in the VA hospital here in Dallas. As you can see from the picture, Ed currently has a Trach Tube.

The good news is that the Dr's have decided to treat Ed despite the fact that the Cancer is far progressed. Treatment should begin within a week. Based on what Ed wrote on on his notepad, he will undergo radiation daily (not sure for how long) and he will also undergo Chemo once per week for approximately 39 treatments!!

He will be discharged from the VA hospital within a week and will most likely go to an assisted living community / nursing home - It looks like Brentwood here in Dallas will most likely be the place. He will be shuttled back and fourth daily for his treatments.

Because of the cost of the nursing home, Ed has to sign over his entire SS check and he will be given $60 a month for his discretionary income. His desire is to be able to sell some parts so that he may supplement this amount as it is obviously next to nothing. I plan on working with some of you guys so we can get him a decent laptop so he can communicate and hopefully earn some money by selling some parts. I plan on contacting the nursing home in the next few days to see what they have for internet connectivity if anything.

Ed is unable to talk but a few words at a time.. He did want me to give you his new hospital phone number 214-302-1553. I think he will be there for a least another 3-4 days. He may not be able to say much but he can most certainly understand what is spoken and his mind is there 100%. Maybe a quick call just to tell him hi and any good wishes.

Great pics.

Thanks, we get some pretty cool pics in the winter or our 'babies"

I talked to Ed yesterday afternoon, he seems in very good spirits, certainly sounds like he is handling this better than I could, says a lot about this gentleman's strength & faith.
It was really good to talk to him for a few minutes.

Also, just a reminder but as stated above by Marcus
Ed is trying to make a few extra dollars by selling parts so if any of you are needing something Ed can help you with please take the time to give him a call.
Hell, even if you don't need something ring him up & let him know you are thinking of him
If nothing else it may give him a few minutes respite from what he is going through

Ed
If you get the computer fired up drop in & say hi.
And know there are a lot of folks out here pulling for you

yes sireee,
lol

Thx to a friend here in Dallas he loaned to me his laptop for a couple of days. i wish he had a good pop-up blocker' This thing is pop-up hell and difficult to use because of so many windows keep opening. Still I am very thankful for him to bring it for my use a few days. Another friend Watt Biggem loaned me his older Dell with a Wy-Fye card but I couldnot get it to work at all. This one that Jon KIng loaned me is an older one too It saya Compaq Presario V200 and has a Verison card sticking from it. Actually would be working goodwith a security system to stop the pop -ups. I am still blessed richly though.

I have had a Theme song about my Terminal Cancer since I was told. Years ago a singe named Bobby Mcpherson did a song. Actually I think it is a WW I song. Titled *Don't Worry Be Happy. Well friends that is now Ed's Theme Song and they way I am trying to live my life, with mucho help in my heart from God. I actually enjoyed planning out my funeal plans with my best friend Chad Kohler and My oldest daughter Belinda Wilson, Tennessee, and my Little sister Alice Beauman from Hot Springs Ark.

Man'
this is kind of a new road and new way for me to try to live. I have tubes all over the place sticking out of me it seems.

was just reading this thread and reallly do appreciate you all.

I have now done my third treatment out of a total of I think 39.

For my first time I am supposed to be in the same room longer than 2 days. they keep moving me continually. for various reasons and putting me in places cel is not permitted.

i DEFINETLY DID WAIT FAR TOO LONG BEFORE SEEKING help. Paying a huge price for too.

Some of tthe cancer Doctors have losely given me a time frame but most are reluctant to say any certain amount of days, weeks or months. Pretty all refuse to talk with me about years. One went as far to tell me that the best right now I should expect is what they call Palative Treatments. He told me that when the cancer tumors are as large as mine are that the best case will be to help someof the pain get better in the treatments, but it is likely for me to still be in a pain but different kind from the treatments as the treatments do thier job' so according to that one, don't expect them to work miracles.

An expression that seems to be used much by physicians about how long do I have Are words in an expression that I am really starting to hate. here it is' * None of us know how long it will be. Could get run over by a car tomorrow.

I did corner the main Doc that is signed off on treatment andproceedures to be used. he told me I am treating you to be cured as much as we can. Mr Wilson your tumors are very large, but I am ordering for you thedaily treatments to try to stp it from rowing and to make it shrink. We aare treating for a cure as you asked, but we want you to not get hopes up too high. He let me know that if my treatment was supposed to only keep me comfortable, that He would not have had reasons to warn me about the pains this stepped up treatment will possibly cause from burns.

So bottom line is I will live.

Ed

Good news Ed. From what I'm hearing from your post you have what it takes to fight this thing off. That is what it takes to come out the winner.

IF ANY OF YOU DOES THESE SORTS OF THINGS I would enjoy seeing and keeping real mailed by snail mail, cards, letters, and real flowers that have a pleasant smell. You can send me pics of your family or cars or anthing that I can tape up to look at and to enjoy. Of course I would be happy with fake floweres too, but I do really enjoy the real ones and do my best to water and keep them as long as possible.

Hate bringing up money subjects again but I wish to express as much apprecian as I know how to those who did help. I feel it is fair for you to all know what your blessing to me and my oldest daughter Belinda Wilson, My oldest grand son Corey, and dear sweet precious Gracie, my youngest grand daughter have been wonderfully blessed by you. The VA Hospital gave them some really nice living quarters. Thier room was pretty nice to me. So we were able to stretch it out further and was used mostly for eating expenses for them. This was like a God send to me, to be able to enjoy them with me here. I love them and the others who could not yet make it so very much.

Ed is getting ready to be more available to sell some parts we are already WD with now for some income and to still be able to get you who wish
some really decent prices.

I am also wondering how Engines by Ed-vanced Engines, built by proxy would work? Guess I am dreaming about this though. I would be the brains behind it and by close communicating and a good wrench turner that has the tools and some basic race engine abilities, with a machinits that follows my directons by the letter should run pretty good and I collect like a consultant fee and some parts profit. I actually have sucessfullly already done this once and am now doing something similar with a SB 2.2 head 440 cu in alky Mud Truck.

I still have a few things in my old noggin that never get posted.

Ed

Ed, Great to hear from you! ... keep that positive attitude, and with God's mercies, you are going to do well!

We will keep praying for you and your family and will get a letter off to you this weekend. Wifey says she knows how to get flowers to you, so she is going to work on that first thing next week. Ed, I can appreciate that request for flowers. I am a big guy, but I sure like flowers also, particularly yellow ones! The wife planted a ring of black eyed susans around the garden this year, and I really liked that.

Hey Ed, Bill Glidden here, listen/read. No regrets, if you have them, then get them off your chest. Noone knows when we are supposed to fight off a nagging pain, for a tumor, nor a sickness. I say live life how you choose best to suit your needs, I am glad you have taken the effort to tell us about your fight. It is always good to see our family here talk, even you, hehehe, BG
