My prayers are out for your hubbie. Those treatments are rough. my husband
had radiation for 8 weeks and one day a week cemo. in Aug of last year
finished in Oct. he is in remission. Still has to go every 3 mo for check
up. Will have another PETscan the 30th of this mth. His was lung cancer and
in the limp nodes in his chest. They say he is doing ok. He is back working
at our garage, but tires real easy. We both are 77 now.
I feel so sorry for all those folks in the floods. That oil spill has ruined
alot of homes and other things i'm sure. Have been watching it on televsion.
May Gog Bless you all.
I bet the Dale you was speaking of was Dale Marr. She moved from Tx to
Memphis several mths ago. haven't heard from her since. She came to Izard
once, and some of us ARIZARD bunch got to geather at Calico Rock and had
lunch and had a great time. Alot of genealogy talk went on. Ha!!
have had the privilege of having Bud drop bye to see me . He left Izard when
he was small. Knew all his families , married to one of his relatives at one
Sorry to hear about the loss of your dau, and son-in-law. I know that would
be hard to handle. Blessings!

Subject: [ARIZARD] Coffeyville Flood
> You are certainly correct in the fact that Coffeyville didn't do so
good! My husband, Dean, worked out at the refinery where the oil spilled
for 36 years but retired in 1992. It was purchased by another company after
that. We missed the flood water by three houses coming up North Willow, I
cried when I saw the east side of Coffeyville on the news. It is my
hometown. We have not been over in that area, first responders are breaking
out in rashes and becoming ill. The smell is terrible coming from the
refinery and the flood waters. The state and Fema has come in, National
Guard is here and firemen from OK are here.
> Our sons made us leave the house, Roger is a policeman in
Independence, KS 17 miles north of us, he has worked 46 hours of overtime
since the flood started. Our son, Duane worries, Roger doesn't so when
Roger was worried about us, Duane really worried. I have lived through
three big floods here and it has never been nearer our home than 100 feet,
we live up a hill starting there and it would have to go a lot higher to get
us. I was born here 77 years ago this month, there will be homes on the
east side that will never be lived in again.
> We have not had a phone since a week ago last Saturday, we have had
to boil drinking water but we took the route of bottle water. Fema was here
giving it out, never thought we would ever use anything from Fema. We only
had a trickle of water for a few days after the flood. There is still
standing water on the east side. Dean just read in the Sunday morning paper
that our water is now safe but think we will wait a while to use it for
> Izard county list is active and I love it, have thought about getting
off but I am hooked to Vera's obits, etc. I am glad to see Bernie back on,
I like to read her thoughts. There was a Dale who helped me a lot at one
time but haven't seen Dale on for a while. I miss Robert who corresponded
with me some. I never thought when I would wait to hear about Jean's
husband and how he was doing that we would be facing the same type of thing.
Cancer was found in my husband and he has been going through radiation and
chemo, they weren't able to give him the chemo a week ago last Monday and
then not on last Monday, sure hope the white cell count is up and can get it
done this week, otherwise they will have to give him a shot of some kind.
He has had 25 of his 33 radiation treatments and one week of chemo.
> I like the list lady also, smile. (a lot of Jeans on the list)
> It will take years to get Coffeyville back and it won't be like it
was. A man was found dead in a motel room, they had warned him several
times to evacuate. He wanted to sleep. Our church, First Southern Baptist
Church with help from Red Cross has had many over 100 staying there. Our
son, Duane and his wife, Brenda helped out until the Red Cross and others
came in to help. There are many people without homes, and everything that
was in their home was destroyed. SAD! SAD! So many things are covered
with oil. Gasoline has already gone up 25 cents a gallon since the flood.
> Bud, Winfield will always remain a place in my heart, when our
daughter and son-in-law were killed in an auto accident our two
grandchildren were taken to the Winfield hospital and were there for many
weeks. The Winfield people were so good to us!
