Jud and I spent the weekend at the Mayo Clinic with our very dear friend, Iver and Di. Iver is currently fighting cancer. Di and Iver have been friends for the last thirty-five years. Jud and Iver were young doctors in Rapid City, South Dakota who were determined to put humanity back into medicine and still have a family life, while Di and I were renegade doctor's wives who refused to join medical auxiliary in order to make a point that we were "women in our own right who also had career goals!" They have two special daughters, Megan and Kirsten. Megan was born six days before Kat and they are still very connected. They are all people whom we love them very much.
If you would, please send prayers and good thoughts to their family as Iver begins an especially difficult part of his treatment.
The picture above is not Jud and Iver. It is the "Brothers Mayo" who started this outstanding medical facility. These Mayo guys have more of that funny stuff on their heads and are not handsome bald-headed men like our guys!
