January 29, 2017                UPDATE ON RET. LT. MARTY BLAUSTEIN

From Lou Hollander keystonecop1@verizon.net

I received a text on January 20th from Martyís wife, Betz, that Martyís surgery began at 8:40 AM and that he was in good spirits.  His surgery was to last about 7 hours.  She said the hospital staff was amazing.  About 3:15 this afternoon I received another text Betzy stating that the surgery went well. She said Marty will enjoy a long life full of good health and fun times. They caught this low grade cancer very early.  They can all breathe easy. Marty and Betzy thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

I spoke to Marty the other day about his mail being returned from the Post Office and he told me that he had moved and was currently in a hospital in Pennsylvania that specializes in cancer treatments. He is feeling better and is hopeful that his condition will be treated favorably. - Tony
