You may also write to Bob by posting a comment, which I'll print for him to read. Please feel free to pass this blog site on to anyone you think may want to join us.Instructions to blog are listed under day 12, and bobs' address etc are under day 14.

Our Dear Friend Debbie

Dear friends and family,

As many of you know and I've written many times on this blog, our wonderful friend Debbie Teklits was diagnosed w/ AML in Dec.05. I'm writing now to ask for your prayers for Debbie who is now coming to the end of her long battle. Debs' AML was diagnosed 2 mos. before Bobs, and they had taken pretty much the same journey until Debs stem cell transplant was unsuccessful. She was doing out patient chemo these last 8 mos. until 5 weeks ago when she was found to be out of remission. She then had in patient chemo at HUP which was ineffective. She is at home on hospice right now with her husband Joe, daughter Jessie, and sons Joe and Michael, but the outlook is very poor and as her husband wrote on their blog, he believes the end is near. Please pray for Deb and her family this weekend, that she will be comfortable and at peace. I'm also going to enclose their address as some people have already asked me for it, and their blog site also. Despite always knowing how deadly Debbies leukemia was, this is still such a blow. Especially because she fought for so long, with such grace and strength of character and an aura of invincibility. I always thought in my heart that she would survive. Bob and I are devastated.

So I thank you for your prayers once again, this time for Deb.

All our love,
Mo and Bob

Deborah and Joseph Teklits

Hi Alison,

I don't know if you'll look back here, but I wanted to thank you for your message, and also for being such a true and faithful blogging FOD. I can tell you that your messages and support always meant the world to Deb and she always looked so forward to meeting you, as did I. I'm still hopeful that may happen one day. This is a difficult time for all the FODs and we're keeping all in our prayers. Thank you again.


PS....can't remember the name of your website.....was hoping to contact you thru it.
