NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN

Rev. Raleigh Watson

As I write this column, Dick Boxwell has returned home after surgery on the day of our last meeting. The surgery went well and Dick looked and acted very well even on the day following his serious surgery. We offer our best wishes for a

speedy and complete recovery!

J. Jones’ daughter, Jill, posted the following on April 19: Hi Everyone! Dad had treatment today. He is holding steady. Mom was happy Dad gained a pound back. Blood pressure was good. The doctor says Dad continues to look great. He is happy with Dad's  stats. The next PET scan will be in 3-4 months. A great milestone this week, Dad attended one of the local veteran meetings. It was good to see him go out. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Take care everyone, Jill.

I visited Charles Hoak and Bud Robertson last week. Charles is undergoing therapy at home, again – visits are appreciated, but Lea requests that you call first and set up an appropriate time, so as not to interfere with the schedule.  Bud also would like to see any of our members who can visit – but he, too, needs a call ahead of time – and you might need explicit directions from him – although my GPS has been able to get me there. (Shawnee Land is confusing!)

Maynard Wilson has been hospitalized with back and cardiac problems, but has recovered enough to attend the fund raiser on April 21st, and the concert on 22 April. Please keep all of these and others on our sick list in your prayers!
