In order to keep everyone informed, we thought this would be the best means of communication for those who are praying and sending positive thoughts to Rita.
As many of you may know, Rita has been diagnosed with stage3 – Squamous cell carcinoma. She has a tumor wrapped around her trachea, which has grown large enough to put enough pressure on her right bronchi which limits her breathing. She is currently in ICU in Springfield on a ventilator. Jim is with her as much as he possibly can be. The only time he leaves her side is to eat or sleep or when the ICU nurses kick him out because of shift change. Rita is a very strong woman who is loved by so many. She has people across the country praying for her. Please keep the prayers and positive thoughts coming, she has a rough road ahead of her.
Rather than back track with all the chaos she has been through the last few weeks I will start with Wednesday February 3rd.
