SADDLEBAG SUNSHINE REPORT
January 18, 2010
Martha Jane (Marty) Slone, a former resident, died December 22, 2009 while at the Arbor Hospice in Michigan. She was active in golf and tennis when she resided in Saddlebag.
Mike Pyne will have extensive surgery for pancreatic cancer on Tuesday. The family and the doctors are optimistic. The tumor is small and apparently has not spread to any other organ. Mike has a long recovery ahead. Prayers are needed. Cards may be sent to the local in the directory.
Steve Stinespring is still in Lake Wales Hospital where he was admitted with internal bleeding. He has received five pints of blood. The doctor cauterized a spot on the intestine and there has not been any more bleeding from that area. He will have a colonoscopy to determine if there is any bleeding there. The family requests prayers for Steve. Cards may be sent to the local address in the directory. Steve and Sandy thank the many Saddlebaggers for the prayers, cards, visits and phone calls received while Steve has been hospitalized.
