Sickness & Distress:
Jeanette Montross went to see her urologist last Friday for a consultation. They could give her radiation or remove the bladder. Radiation might work, but if it doesnâ€™t, it might be too late to do anything about the cancer, and if they operate, the body doesnâ€™t heal very well after radiation. Her doctor feels that the cancer is confined to the bladder, but canâ€™t tell for sure until he goes in to remove the it. Daniel and Jeanette have given the doctor permission to set up an operating time. He is sending Jeanette to an internist on June 6th to make sure all her organs can handle the surgery which would follow shortly afterwards. The surgery will take about 4 = hours. Cards may be sent to the Canadian address in the directory. (Postage is $.63)
Dan Adkins will be going home to Ohio as soon as his doctor releases him for travel, probably in a week or ten days. The tumor on his lung is malignant and is interfering with his breathing. Cards may be sent to him this week at the local address in the doctor and as of next week send cards to the northern address, also in the directory.
Jo Dowler should be able to come home from the Dove nursing home next week. She is still receiving therapy. Cards may be sent to her at the local address in the directory.
Phyllis Boucher had gall bladder surgery yesterday and is feeling fairly good. Chuck said she is talking up a storm must be the drugs! Cards may be sent to Phyllis at the northern address in the directory.
Terry Perigo made a trip to the Mayo Clinic for a second opinion. It was decided he would start a fourth type of chemo, less responsive than the other types of chemo he has tried. As Terry says: With the Lord giving me strength, I cannot stop short of the finish line. He asks for us to keep him in his prayers. Cards may be sent to him at the northern address in the directory.
John Bernasconi did not have a mild stroke as some folks thought. However, he does have a problem with the nerves in his neck and a thinning of the disks. He has been to see a neurologist and also a cardiologist. John is on a beta blocker and heart medication. He is wearing what is called an event recorder, also called a heart monitor. The results will be sent to his doctor. He will have an MRI the end of June, but is on a cancellation list and may be able to have is sooner. Cards may be sent John at
Box 502 58 Ilderbrook Circle, Ilderton, Ontario, Canada N0M 2A0. (Postage is $.63)
Bob Ashley is coming along well after his fall. The stitches were removed from his right arm on Monday. The rod extending from the shoulder to just above the elbow will be permanent. He still has the soft cast on his right leg, but is able to walk straight legged. He also had a scrape on his left leg that they were treating with Neosporin. It was not healing and they are now going to a wound center which seems to be helping. Bob has a lift chair which is a big help. It will be three weeks Monday since his accidental fall. Heâ€™s been overwhelmed by the number of cards heâ€™s received. They can still be sent to the northern address in the directory.
Lloyd Akiens is doing well. He is getting around using a cane. Even big guys like cards. They may be sent to the local address in the directory.
Don Kahm is home from the Dove Nursing Home and doing much better. He has a chair lift that helps him get up and down. Sue says Don is able to walk a bit. A hospice nurse comes in periodically. Cards may be sent to the local address in the directory listed under Boorom.
Joyce Belanger wished to thank Saddlebaggers for the many cards and call she received and also the church for the flowers. She is waiting to see an eye specialist in Boston. Cards may be still be sent to the northern address in the directory.
Please remember our Saddlebag friends with prayers, cards and phone calls.
