Adele Roland OP

Sister is in residence at Our Lady of Lourdes convent in San Rafael, at our care facility for our members.  While not still working in her ministry of photography, she is enjoying chats about her pictures as they are rotated in her room. At 99 years of age, she is frail but thinking about what it will be to be 100 years old in December.

Updates on members who are ill

Sue Tracy:

By God's grace and the ongoing tsunami of prayers, I can joyfully report that I am doing significantly better than I was late fall and winter. Spring has brought restored energy to about 85% of my per usual (my sister in law claims that my 85% is about 125% for lots of folks) stamina.

I have completed nine chemo treatments for this metastasized right cheek lymphoma that migrated north to the parietal lobe of the brain. The five day hospital stays have been manageable minus pain, nausea or vomiting. I am grateful that my bodymindspirit has absorbed the high dose methotrexate without harm.

Today [April 21] I have another follow up brain MRI and will find out the results next Tuesday. This weekend I am participating in a cancer survivors/thrivers weekend at a lovely retreat center overlooking Lake Michigan north of Holland, MI. I have given the final Sunday morning talk entitled CELEBRATE LIFE COME WHAT MAY DAY BY DAY twice a year since 1999 to those who have gathered and now I can be an attendee. I'm excited.

Feel free to share this if you so choose, Barb. I value your love and care and that of our Dynamic International Artists .. also known as D I A
Lovingly always, Sue Tracy OP

Joeann Daley: This was sent out by Sinsinawa OP

Dear All,

Joeann Daley asked that I provide a little progress report of her health.  Last week I wrote that she was admitted to Columbia St. Mary's Hospital on April 9th with pancreatitis.  She is still in the hospital and tomorrow will graduate to a regular medical floor.  Jo is feeling much better.  She will need some time to regain her strength and engage in rehab therapy.  She is grateful for her care and for your concern.  Please continue to keep her in prayer. 

If you wish to send a card, someone will pick up her mail at her residence and deliver it to her -- in mission list:

Note: Her show at the Mound had to be cancelled because of her illness.
