Encouraging News

By Betty Rose Palomba

"We arrived home late from Duke. The news was good from the surgeon. He said he will absolutely be able to fix Lou's Pyloric Valve by inserting a balloon into it. He has done this procedure many times before. This will stretch that hard muscle, allowing the stomach to empty quicker. We will return to Duke this coming Wednesday, prepare for the surgery on Thursday and the operation will be on Friday.

We should be back on Friday, assuming everything goes as planned. The surgeon was very positive, he removed Lou from the oxygen, while there and sent us home. We are both l00% encouraged and know that Lou will even feel better after this is done. Thank you again for ALL of your love, support and prayers

Betty and Lou"
