Judy's Health

Cancer - the word was certainly a shock to us but Judy is handling it remarkebly well and the current prognosis is very positive. Many of you now know, but Judy was diagnosed with Cervical cancer a few weeks ago and had surgery to remove her uterus last week. We have now been referred to a gynocological oncologist in Denver who we see on Thur. From what we have learned from the first surgeon and from our reading, the oncologist will likely do a surgery to remove some of Judy's lymph nodes and then possibly follow up with radiation. The cancer was caught very early and so we are feeling very positive about the outcome. I have now doubt you'll see Judy out on the trails again sometime this summer. Thanks so much to everyone who has called or emailed us to check on her. Our friends in Team CRUD have been particularly helpful and kind, stopping by to give her support and just talk, taking her mind off the cancer for awhile.
