OUR PATTI DEAR


I checked with Pat before posting this and she said it’s ok to share. After all, we are all friends. Well, at least most of us are. So I just want to make sure everyone knows that Pat is being treated for that pesky lung nodule that turned out to be positive for cancer, currently doing the chemo and radiation thing and who knows, perhaps the next time we see her she will be positively GLOWING. and she might have super powers. She can use our prayers and positive thoughts and we might have to do her drinking for her too, temporarily. (And while you’re shooting those prayers and positive thoughts, perhaps you can send some for my daughter Heidi who’s continuing her treatment for thyroid cancer. Very good prognosis, but you know I’ll feel better when she gets the all clear.) I appreciate it and good night.
