Sickness & Distress:
Nancy Lambert had a setback Saturday morning. She experienced a heart known atrial fibrillation. She was transferred to the Progressive Care Unit where she was monitored closely and a cardiac surgeon was called in. However, she's doing quite well and Chic is bringing her home today. The good news is there is no cancer, growth or infection. The upper intestine was twisted allowing a backup which caused the pain. Cards may be sent to the local address in the directory.
Ed Weirauch will most likely have surgery this Wednesday for the orbital fracture he suffered when he fell at his daughter's home in Georgia. This is contingent upon the doctor clearing the surgical schedule. He is also having physical therapy on his right wrist which is quite painful. If PT doesn't work Ed's doctor will schedule a CAT scan. Cards may be sent to him at 810 Katie Los Court, Loganville, GA 30052.
Betty Zulauf is recuperating from pneumonia. Cards may be sent to the local address in the directory.
Doris Wierenga is also recuperating from pneumonia. Cards may be sent to the local address in the directory.
Sammie and Win Siegfried both became while in Cape Cod. They think the drastic change in temperature between Florida and Massachusetts was a contributing factor. Sammie and Win must delay returning to Saddlebag until both are able to fly without injury to their ears.
Jeff Katenkamp's results from a bone marrow biopsy last week showed no signs of cancer. Now he has to regain his strength and protect his new immune system for the next few months. Jeff and family which to thank everyone here at Saddlebag for the many prayers, cards and thoughts.
