Being A "Red Cupper" Is A Tuff Life!

One of the highlights
of our upcoming
Key West trip,
is a sceinic boat trip in
and around the Keys.
The boat docks at the Key
West Harbour & Yacht Club. I understand there is a
health supply of Dickel, plenty of sunshine, and a ton
of fun to be had..... The whole trip is going to be a blast,
this just pushed it over the top. Our thanks to Charles,
Dawn, David, & Regina..... A very generous gift, we owe ya!

Never Give Up On Hope & Prayers

Well....I Guess it would be safe to say Verne got
some good news today!...Per the pathologist, the
tumor attached to his kidney was not cancer!
Can't imagine the stress our buddy has gone
through while waiting on this report, but we all
are thankful for the outcome!.......Per Verne, we
all intend to have a special "Red Cup Moment"
just to celebrate this wonderful news!

Vern Update!

The surgery went well and Vern is doing good.
Several visited him on October 6th, and found his spirits
good, but also illustrating a little discomfort.

I guess it's OK to share they removed Vern's right kidney.
It was a dreaded but necessary procedure.

The flowers sent from the "Red Cup Society" , made it to
his room and looked great.
More are slated to visit as the days go on. There is high
optimism he may get to go home Friday....We'll keep our
fingers crossed.
Hang in there Vern! You are in our thoughts and prayers!
