This is an update for Patti, per her husband David. She's currently unable to add to the blog. We made an emergency run to the hospital, Thursday, a week ago. It was the same day we were scheduled to go to Chicago, to Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
Patti spent a week, was released Thursday. Doing as well as can be expected. Her hands (which have always shaken), are shaking a LOT, which is why she can't type anything. "It's like a crazy game", as she describes it. But she DOES read anything people write her (in personal email - she hasn't been able to get in her school email for some reason) and Facebook. She says, "When the shaking gets better, I'll do some replies", but she keeps up with correspondence and loves reading it.
Still hoping to go to Chicago, but need some time first.
We appreciate, more than we can say, the help, donations, food, cards, and prayers of everyone. It's a time in our lives we hoped to never happen, but people's help and concern have made things bearable.
