Family Update...

We arrived home from New Jersey and Dad's funeral very early Friday morning.  Everything went well in New Jersey (except the weather which didn't cooperate) and many wonderful memories were shared by friends and relatives.

Reid had been complaining about his left arm hurting and feeling numb for a few weeks, but wanted to wait until we returned to go down to MD Anderson.  Yesterday we took him to the ER at Anderson and sadly his Hodgkin's Lymphoma has returned and is pressing on a nerve to his left arm.  He's been given pain medication and will follow up with the Oncologist on Monday or Tuesday.  We were all very disappointed to hear this news.  He was finally getting some energy back after all the treatments and we were optimistic that he could begin school shortly.  On his last visit with the Oncologist in August he was told that if there was a recurrence he had a "Plan B."  So, it looks like he'll be moving on to "Plan B."

Needless to say, with all that has gone on lately I probably won't be having much time to post or E-mail.  My E-mail boxes are overflowing and I'm probably going to go in and start deleting.

Thank you for your warm thoughts and prayers during this difficult time in our lives.


  1. Oh Betty. Prayers and hugs and best wishes continue for everyone. I hope Plan B works well for your sweet Reid.

  2. Oh, Betty, words cannot express...hang on and here's hopes for Plan B.

  3. Sorry to hear the news. Will be praying for your family.

  4. Betty, my deepest sympathy on the loss of your father and also the sad news that Reid has a reoccurance. This must be so hard on you...I don't know how you cope but I know you are. I am praying right now for all of you. Please don't feel the need to e-mail back..please take good care of yourself too!
