Lori / Lori's Letterbox

Lori from Alberta (Canada) has had bad news resulting from her surgery: the cancer has spread to the liver. The proposed (partial) removal of her pancreas was not performed, but the tumour in the liver has been removed. Chemotherapy will now be administered to improve quality of life. In other words: a cure is no longer possible.

Lori has altered the set-up on her blog so that comments can not be left, and her daughter Dana has made a posting on her behalf, although I don't know whether Lori knew about it. No mention of this has been made on Lori's Facebook page.

Sandi Loses Husband

I heard from Linda in Washington this morning when I logged on that Sandi had lost her husband, Joe, very suddenly in the night.

Sandi has, apparently, left a message on Facebook informing everyone. I do have the link to her journal but she does not appear to have updated since last September.

However, if you would like to leave a message of condolence there, here is the link:

Please hold Sandi in your prayers and send out love to her at this terribly sad time. I have known Sandi a long time from AOL journals as well as blogger. I am so sad for her.

Jane's funeral is to be held on Friday 11th June. Please leave a final comment on her blog, also if you wish to attend the funeral in person - her husband Martin has left contact details.

Martin has started his own journal, called Life after Jane. Please welcome him to the land of blog in his own right.

Edit: Have corrected URL.
