Orrin Pibbles is doing much better since his hospitalization over the holiday weekend. He is eating three times a day now, but was disappointed that he had lost another two pounds. Orrin has low blood cells so he is getting an injection once a week to stimulate the bone marrow to make good cells. The melanoma cells have been dropping , so apparently the chemo is working. They saw a neurosurgeon last Wednesday for a follow-up check and was told to start exercising more. He is walking a little straighter now. Orrin tires easily and sleeps a couple of hours in the afternoon and goes to bed around 8:30 to 9:00 PM. Linda and Orrin want to thank Saddlebag for all the prayers, cards and phone calls. Cards may be sent to the northern address in the directory.
