For those of you living in Pie Town area as well as Datil and Quemado, family and friends, I would like to thank you all for the support you have given me. As you may know I’ve been trying to deal with my breathing problem here at almost 8,000 feet. When I moved here to Pie Town 16 years ago, life was a lot easier. I didn’t have a breathing problem back then. Carrying a 5 pound O2 tank around all the time gets old quick, especially at 82 (holy cow). Thanks to some great friends and neighbors, Karen, Joan, and Tony, who with the help of others, put on a fund raiser dinner and bingo party. My husband John started a GoFundMe account which also helped gather enough money to afford a new, state-of-theart battery powered INOGEN 1 O2 concentrator. Only 2.5 pounds to deal with, which makes it a lot easier to get around. Thank you all again. I sure can breath a lot easier now.
