Dear family and friends,

Most of you are aware of Betty’s medical situation. She was diagnosed with cancer of the appendix which has metastasized into her abdominal lining.  Because of its location, it has resulted in significant pain for her.  To complicate things, Betty suffered pulmonary embolisms in both lungs just before Christmas. She was hospitalized for a week and is now home on blood thinners and oxygen.  Thankfully she completed her first chemo therapy session this week. This will begin to shrink her tumors and alleviate the main cause of her pain.  She handled the side effects of chemo fairly well, and she is now actively implementing her physical therapy regimen.  As always, Betty welcomes your cards, letters and texts.

Betty asked me to say that your prayers have helped carry her through this, and she thanks you from a grateful heart and she is sending you love, hugs and kisses. Please continue to keep her in your prayers. I will update you on her condition periodically. If you have specific questions please direct  them to me.
