Butch Moody Update - February 12, 2011

Butch was hospitalized Tuesday, February 8, 2011, with respiratory distress and extreme fatigue.  Testing finally revealed that he has a blood clot in his left lung, the same lung in which the malignant tumors are located.  Butch has had blood transfusions and is currently receiving medication to dissolve the blood clot.  He is feeling a little stronger today and was released to go home.  He must, for life, take a daily injection, most likely Heparin, in his stomach area to dissolve and prevent blood clots.  Butch and Sue can use your prayers and positive thoughts.
