Why the Redwood Forest slideshow?

Judy had always loved trees, and in 2008 we spent some time among the California Redwoods. Some of the ingredients in Judy's chemo cocktail were derived from trees (not Redwoods but Yews). We always knew that Judy loved the trees, and the trees got their chance to repay her affection.

Surgery delayed until 4 p.m.

We were just informed that it will be another 2 hours before surgery, so right around 4 p.m. We were told that Dr. Phillips is very thorough (fine with us!) and that he takes as much time as is needed, and things have been running a bit over time today. Judy is getting a little tired of lying around without even a sip of water, but we're OK. Just wanted to let everyone who is interested know what the status is here in Lubbock.

Also: I just learned that Blogger (yes, this program and website) will have a scheduled maintenance downtime this afternoon at 6 p.m. Central. The site should be back up after about 10 minutes, but who knows, this could be like surgery. :)

Again, and continually, I lift up Judy to your care. As she waits my petition to You for her and the loved ones waiting with her is for continued peace and comfort. My trust in Your mighty hand to care for her is complete. Hold her in your bosom with the assurance of your love for her as you direct her caregivers. Thank you, Father, for your ever-present love for us, your care for Judy, and most of all the salvation offered to us through your Son. Rhonda

Judy and Jurgen,
I know all of this waiting has to be driving you crazy; but, it is good to know that the surgeon focuses on the patient at hand to do everything he can. We are keeping you in our thoughts.
HUGS to both of you!

Well, it's 3:30 Mountain Time, so the nurses should have rolled you into the ER by now. John and I wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you both and sending our love and prayers across the miles.

Kick ASS Judy!

Peace, love, and strength!
The Jetts

(PS, we'll have a glass of red wine for you at dinner tonight in your stead.)
