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.

Quick hospital update

Judy has spent the past 24 hours in the hospital. We're hopeful that we may not face surgery for the bowel obstruction. At this point, she is hooked up to an IV, and an NG tube is supposed to take relieve the stomach and whatever it produces. The idea is to let her bowels rest, settle down, and start working again to clear out whatever is sitting in there. Let's hope it is as simple as that. Dr. Phillips saw her today and was quite positive; however, he only rolled his eyes when Judy asked whether she could travel with me next week to Michigan for the Steelhead 70.3. Oh well, she wouldn't be Judy if she didn't ask, right?

Her spirits are OK, and if you want to give her a buzz, the direct line to her room is 806-725-7555.

Hang in there you guys. Sorry about this bump in the road. Hopefully this will resolve quickly--the hard part is the waiting and laying around. Two things I know Judy does not like! We are still praying for you every day. Ian asks all the time how your medicine is working for you. Love to both of you, Michelle
