Sally Loyd (Sabino)

Oh My goodness.  Sounds like so much fun.  So many of you able to get together finally!  If I had a jet, i'd be right there:-)

Your get-to-gethers have been so uplifting these past two years.  Yes, it has been that  long since I have been on. While a lot of you don't know me, I have gotten to know you and am so very proud to be a part of our class. The saying "Life Happens when You are making other plans" is so true.

Two years ago the end of this month and into June Life was finally beginning to calm down after loosing a dear classmate to Cancer.  Then came news of my dear Jill (Terrerington) Alfrey was dealing with cancer. We knew each other since three years of age.  I found out later in a frinzie of two weeks and my health she had died.  The last time I heard from her was that she made it to the hospital before me.  One evening I was lifelighted to Salt Lake City for surgery that  could not be performed in Boise.  I had a fishtail they called it that came out of cancer in my right kidney.  Loved and blessed by my Lord and the skillful hands of three surgeons I was saved within a quarter inch.  The fishtail had  left the kidney and went through the diaphram up to the first ventrical into the heart and hooked there.  Three weeks later after returning home from surgery and two weeks rehab I found out that Jill had died. We've all been faced with heart wrenching issues this past two years, so I will not go into it anymore.

The kidney was removed and then a tumor had matastisized  in the bone #5 in my back.  16 weeks radiation and now a year of therapy I am doing very well. At this moment I am off chemo ($1000 pill a day) and will have a full body scan on the 12th.  Since December there has been no new cancer.  I'm believing it will keep being that way. And so I now have been vaccinated, new drivers license star card and updated passport and ready for TRAVEL and Life is Wonderful!     I am off to my nunber one bucket list trip on June 7th to Mackinac Island, MI.  I had been there in 2015 and knew I would be back.  I had begun plans when my life had a pivot.  I'm back on track now and very excited to return where my spirit and soul were at peace while there.

Thank you for the birthday wishes last month.  They meant a lot to me.  Please forgive me for being so long in this message and in saying hello sooner.I look forward to hearing all about the lunch and what you are all doing. 

The butterfly brings Hope and Happiness to us.  I wish these for you and warm sunshine.  Sally :-)

Betty Myers (Schaefer)

Wow, what a terrible time you have had Sally.  Glad to hear you are on the back end side of it and up to working on your wish list of life pleasant journeys again.  Enjoy, you deserve it, and yes, I have missed your happy optimistic posts.

Hyder Park on June 14th.  Looking forward to seeing classmates--it's been a long time.

Betty Myers (Schaefer)

I am like that other Schaefer person (who forgets to put an e in his Schaefer name) I need to firm up my plans in June.  My husband is starting radiation therapy soon but it is not scheduled yet.  Would depend on how he is doing with it.  I will let you know, I hope, sooner than later.

Betty Myers (Schaefer)

Merl, the more vowels the better the chances.

Betty Myers (Schaefer)

Merl,  Need to be able to guess consonants.  Is there an L?

05/10/21 08:58 PM #2028    


Merl Schafer

No, but I'll give you a M. Oh look, there are two! Try again?

Anyone else want to guess?

Betty Myers (Schaefer)

Merl,  I think I got it Scha-fer.   Anyway, no matter how you spell it Schaefer or Schafer are good folks in my book.   :)   I should have gotten a picture of you pretending to steal the e off of our Schaefer sign.

Merl Schafer

See, I knew you know how to spell Schafer!
