New Paltz Reunion

There are big plans for Reunion Weekend up at the college.  For my year – ’66 – this is our 50th .  It would be great to get lots of Thetas there.  I go every 5 years, and I’m usually the only Theta there.  This year those who said that they may come are: Ceil Bosico, Alice Edwards, Linda Lewis, Eleanor Antonucci and Trish Hillis.

I’m hoping that if more of the sisters see this info, there will be greater interest in re-connecting  on campus.  If anyone wants to be in touch, other than just through the Reunion website, you can post my email address:  Ninanons@optonline.net
- Nina Lazar 








You may contact the Alumni Relations Office about pre-registration, accommodations,questions, etc. at 1-845-257-3230 -Penny Drabick, or go online to: www.newpaltz.edu/alumni/reunion

Thoughts Are With Midge Dube As She Prepares for Surgery

For members of my family and friends who may not be aware of my medical problems this year I am sending this out today to update all of you about my upcoming Colostomy surgery, and asking each of you to pray that it will be successful.
 
In the beginning of February I was extremely sick and thought I had the flu...my daughter Stacey finally brought me to the Doctors who immediately sent us to the Saratoga Hospital, I don't remember much of it because my stomach was filled with septic poisoning, my colon had rupture and for the first couple of days or so, they didn't think I would make it....On the third day a surgeon on duty performed emergency surgery and removed a large part of my colon and fitted me with a connecting stoma for a colostomy bag.  I was in ICU for two weeks and in the Hospital until March - then home with visiting nurses for the next few months. Living with the colostomy bag and an open wound in my incision has limited my movements since I need to be constantly taking care of these problems.  I went to see the surgeon yesterday since I have regained much of my health, to see if I could be a candidate for a reverse colostomy.
 
He is scheduling one for Monday September 19, and says because it is a major operations there is a small chance that it may not work, and I will need a colostomy bag for the rest of my life, but Stacey thinks he has to say that because of law suits and I need to be positive.  So please Pray that everything will go well and I can return to a more active life and be able do the fun things I used to do. If you can keep me in your prayers I am sure everything will work out for the best...
 
I was hoping that I could attend the reunion this year but since this will be a major operation the recovery cam 6 to 8 weeks long, so I think I need to aim for next year, God willing everything goes well.  
 
Love, Midge

Get Well Wishes to Laura Siracusano Dudek

Laura Siracusano Dudek is recovering from hip replacement surgery.   

I am at home, recuperating from hip replacement surgery last Wednesday.  I'm doing very well, pain-wise, but am going stir crazy, having to sit and rest so much during the day!  This isn't as much of a "walk in the park" as I'd hoped it would be!!!

Tom is wonderful, waiting on me hand and foot, cooking, cleaning and getting me showered, dressed, undressed and up and down our stairs.  He deserves a medal!  Hopefully, this won't last too long!


Wishing you a speedy recovery, Laura!
