It would require a lot of work to bring his new house up to standards. Little did he know that he had actually walked into a nightmare that would nearly take his life, Moss was 52 in the autumn of 1993. It had not been a good year. He was a heavy equipment me- chanic working for a mine in Fish Lake Valley. Times had been difficult in the Ron Moss mining industry and Moss was laid off. He moved to Tonopah and hoped a little luck would come his way. He moved into an older home on California Avenue. The previous owner had left a lot of lumber lying around. The lumber was to be used as firewood but, Moss thought, it was just a mess. The rooms smelled somewhat murky and there were signs of mouse droppings around the wood. Moss picked up a piece of lumber and tossed it atop another pile. A dust plume rose up from the wood. "It will take a lot of trips to the dump to clean up this mess," he thought. Three days into the clean-up Moss round himself in bed with the flu. "At least, that's what I thought it was," he said. He woke up and just laid in bed not wanting to get up. His joints ached something terrible and he was running a fever. When he did get up it was all he could do to shuffle across the room and try to drink a little water. Food was out of the question. Another day or two and Moss looked like "death warmed over." His friends insisted he go to the hospital -- this was much more serious than the flu. His breathing had become difficult and labored. His lungs seemed painful and unable to bring in air. Moss couldn't afford a doctor and delayed but, soon enough, even he realized that if he didn't get help he would be in serious trouble. He was fading fast. "I couldn't eat. My joints hurt so bad I couldn't walk more than a few feet. The whites of my eyes were blood red. I shook with flu symptoms," Moss relayed. "I couldn't breathe.
