Orrin Pibbles back surgery went very well. He even sat up to play cards last week. Cards may be sent to the northern address in the directory.
Lois Harner is still in the Grove Nursing Home, room 208, where she is receiving therapy. Cards may be sent to her at the local address in the directory.
Karen Canankamp is having radiation treatments on her breast 5 days a week for 5 to 5 = weeks. Since the cancer was estrogen fed, Karen will be on a daily tablet of tamoxifen for 5 years. Cards may be sent to her at the northern address in the directory.
Leo and Audrey Woytiuk hope to be down in February. Leo will have surgery on January 10th. Cards may be sent to him at the Canadian address in the directory. Postage is $.63 .
Pete Thompson will see his doctor on January 8th. At that time a date should be set for his triple bi-pass surgery at the Tampa V.A. Hospital.
Bob Howell fell last Thursday and banged his head. He went to his doctor on Friday. Bob did not have any after effects from the fall, but the doctor told him and Emagene that the chemo has done nothing for the cancer, in fact it has grown a great deal. The doctor has put them on Hospice for after Christmas. The family joined them for Christmas which they enjoyed, but it tired Bob out. He sleeps a great deal now. Cards may be sent to them at the northern address in the new directory.
Jeanette is being moved to a facility with palliative care (Hospice). She will be kept comfortable and pain free. Cards may be sent to Jeanette and Daniel at the Canadian address in the directory. (Postage $.63)
We received a very nice thank you note from Bill Hensel for the many cards he received following Helens death. He plans to come to Saddlebag as soon as possible, as in his words, what a wonderful and caring family I have there.
We also received a thank you note from Willie and Giles Woodruff for the many prayers and concerns for Giles
Please remember our Saddlebag friends with prayers, cards and phone calls.
