Great News for Ed & Jayne Neel - Biopsies are Negative

I have just spoken with Ed Neel.  His surgery for removal of the upper lobe of his left lung was successful.  The really great news is that the biopsies of the surrounding tissue and lymph nodes were negative for the spread of the malignancy.  Ed wishes to express his thanks for the cards and calls he has received.

Ferrin Hicks Hospitalized With Pneumonia

Ferrin Hicks has advised me that he is hospitalized with pneumonia.  It seems that he has an epiglottal dysfunction that is allowing food particles to enter his larynx and thus the trachea.  He is being taught new swallowing techniques, and he hopes to be released on Tuesday, June 7, 2011.  Ferrin asks for your prayers and positive thoughts.
