Question about "The Jacket" (spoilers, maybe)

So I saw the Jacket, and there's this thing in there that bugged me as I watched it and continues to do so today.

In the movie several times the year (in "the present") is stated clearly as 1992. He dies, as it is also stated several times, in 1993. So every time he says "I'm gonna die in 4 days" or whatever, I keep thinking "no, you have a A YEAR and four days, dude."

I swear I'm right. How could they have missed this?
