Teriffic Christmas Present

...for Betty Rose and Lou Palomba!

"....I am so glad to be writing this email today to let you know that Lou came home yesterday from Duke University Hospital. The best part was that he was declared "cancer free"!. Wasn't this a wonderful Christmas present for us? It will be a lengthy recuperation with several restrictions imposed by his doctor. Among those are no driving, dietary issues, and to stay away from crowds and malls for fear of contracting anything during this cold and flu season. Believe me, we have felt, throughout this process being surrounded by all the love, caring, healing thoughts and prayers that you have sent to us. It was a tremendous support system and we appreciate and say thank you to all of you for your help.

It was difficult for me to communicate with you via email while at Duke because the computers at the Duke Library in the hospital were not convenient for me. However, now that we are home both Lou and I are checking our emails.

Once again, thank you, thank you for your support and above all thank you for your friendship with us! Happy Holidays each and everyone of you."

Much love, Betty
