Thanks, Jan

6/10/18: Conneye Kraus was diagnosed with lung cancer. She saw the Doctor today and surgery is out of the question at this time. They will be doing a Pet Scan to see if it has spread before deciding what treatment she will have to undergo. She did not want anyone to know but is willing to let everyone know now. Her daughter was here today to take her to the doctor. I went with her when she saw her regular doctor a couple of weeks ago. She is being treated right now at Highland Oncology group. They will set up the next test and she will find out more after that test. Please let everyone know to keep her in their prayers as she will have a rough go of it for a while.

6/4/18: From Jan Burkybile,  This is our oldest daughter, Kim, who passed away unexpectedly Sunday. We were all together on Saturday for a birthday party for her grandson so all of her sons, grandchildren, sisters, parents, nieces, nephews and other friends were together. Kim was a loving, caring, beautiful daughter who will be missed by all. God speed. We love you so much.

5/31/18:  Update from Deb Metz: "Thank you for all the cards and well wishes during my time of recovery. My surgery seems to be healing well. However, I developed a DVT blood clot in my right leg after I got home from the hospital. I’ve been on blood thinners for 5 weeks and still have pain in my leg when I’m standing or sitting. The good news is that I can walk and sleep without any problems. Miss golfing with you gals on Thursdays. Hope to see you soon. Blessings to you all".

5/22/18:  Sassy Weber's brother, Bud, died this morning about seven. She is packing and getting ready to head out to Woodward, OK, where he lived.

4/19/18:  Deb Metz had prolapsed bladder surgery on  Monday. The urogynecologist did the reconstructive procedure laparoscopically & robotically. She is at home. It was successful. However, she said that "I feel like a semi truck hit me.  I won’t be able to play golf for 3 months. I can’t lift anything over 10 lbs. I’m only supposed to walk on flat surfaces (really, it’s AR). Gravity is not my friend. In the grand scheme of things, this is just a bump in the road. I’ll hopefully will be back in mid July. I’ll miss you girls.

2/16/18: We received this today via Biddy from Jan Simms: "We are in OKC since 2/4. He has been in ICU and intubated since 2/6. They moved him to a different hospital that had a better system for treating the lungs and he has improved to a point, but they haven’t been able to get the top part of his lungs cleared. They are running another test to see what they need to change. All we need are prayers Please. Jan "
