SADDLEBAG SUNSHINE REPORT
October 22, 2007
Ginger Nichols had more surgery on her leg. She now has a plate in the back of her leg. This second surgery lasted more than 1/2 hours. In addition to that, Ginger has a urinary infection and a fever. Elinor Roescheh, her mom, will stay with Ginger for the next few months. Ginger is now in Bayfront Hospital. However, cards may still be sent to her at 200 Starcrest Dr., Apt. 67, Clearwater, FL 33765. Her phone # is (727) 442-6277.
Allie Franklin is back at Saddlebag now and getting around pretty good.
Marc Pereda has started chemo for cancer in his bladder, not in the kidney as previously reported. The creatine level in the kidney is too high, and he is on a strict vegetation diet. If this, as well as additional amino acids, doesn't reduce the creatine level substantially, the alternative is dialysis. Cards may be sent to him at the local address in the directory.
Max Loudenbeck had a pacemaker put in this past week. They hope to be back to Saddlebag next month. Cards may be sent to the northern address in the directory.
Frank and Janice Todosciuk are back at Saddlebag. It was good to them both and church yesterday.
Marion Morrison has left the Pocono Reserve where she had to stay following a fall, resulting in four broken ribs, and is at their son's home. The bus trip back to Florida has been postponed for a few weeks as Marion is still in a great deal of pain.
Jean Woodcock had a second stroke this past week. She is paralyzed on the right side and cannot speak. Today (Monday) she is being transferred to rehab center. The address is: Ms. Jean Woodcock, Mercy Rehabilitation Center, 3 St. Anthony St., Auburn, NY 13021
Peggy Brown will have cataract surgeries on November 13th and 27th. She hopes to be back to Saddlebag by Christmas.
Please remember our Saddlebag friends with prayers, cards and phone calls.
