Sue Henson, I have been telling you for many years that socker was not your game and to stick to the piano.  Knees and hips are best done in pairs......when it is all over and recovery is in the distant past, you will be glad you had it done while you are still young.  Hang in there kid, you will be able to "climb every mountain" soon enough. 🚁

Update from Sue Henson

All is well had (hip replacement) surgery august 7. In rehab at The Lodge. Lots of pain but God is giving me the strength. This will get better.  

Getting good care.  It's rare for this to happen. My body didn't do what it was suppose to. This surgery was anterior. Cut halfway down my thigh even. I don't care about scars. Just want to be without pain. I was hospitalized for 3 days then transferred to The Lodge 5 days weekly of pt and occupational. I can do this. 😃

Good afternoon!

It's 8 degree chill factor I understand in Central Ohio today! Through chattering teeth I would still live here over anywhere else!!! The church just posted their winter festival info. I laughed and said I'd come if there are no winter events!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to EACH of US as we move through the year! May we live each day to the full. Not taking anyone or anything for granted!!!

We have a 60th reunion coming up. So that means we will be 78-79-80 years old this year? How is that possible? 

Blessings and peace to you all!!!

Love, Gayle

I just got off the phone with Gail Blanton. First off and the best news I think is that he is now under the care of the VA. That means they are taking over his medical care, the surgery on the other leg, the physical therapy he needs to get him walking and the rehab facility once he is able to go!!!

Please pray for the surgery tomorrow. His circulation is not good in the other leg and they are taking it off above the knee tomorrow morning at 10 AM. I asked about the foot removal on the first leg? Is it okay and stable and he said yes!!!

Please also pray that the VA in Clearwater will follow through on his care and get him walking again soon!!! He probably won't make the 60th but being able to walk and being cared for by medical professionals that really care is the most important!!!

I took my grandson, age 12, to school for concert practice the past couple weeks. He had to be there by 7:30. Normally he would ride the bus and leave at 8-ish.  I told him when I was in school, we lived less than 2 miles from school and since Mom worked and we only had 1 car, I had to walk. A poor me story for sure, right? 

He responded with a question. What time did our school start? I couldn't remember! Do any of you remember times for Junior High and High School?

I just sent in my reservation for Friday night for our 60th class reunion. How can it be 60 years? We're not that old, right? Hahaha. I guess my body says different!

Blessings and peace to all of us!

Love, Gayle

If my memory serves (for whatever that is worth), we started at 8:00.  Except for our senior year during which, due to overcrowding, we had a staggered schedule.  7:30 to 2:30, 8:30 to 3:30, and 9:30 to 4:30.  Corrections welcome from anyone whose memory is better than mine.

That exactly as I remember it....................Lynn

Gayle Laurene Thomas (Reed)

I kinda remember the 8:00 start. But the staggered times I don't remember. Were they assigned? Or did we get to pick? Why did we have to?

And I loved Lynn's answer: "That's exactly as I remember it." I can't remember exactly 5 minutes ago. So 60 years is a little stretch for me. 

Blessings to us all.

April 30

Good evening!

I talked to Gail Blanton last night and told him I would post an update from him. 

He's in a VA rehab now. And has been measured for his other leg. It will be a prosthetic above the knee. He keeps saying when he gets it, he is going to go home! I know he wants to but I think it will take a while. And as much as he would like to come to the 60th, I'm not sure that's possible. But maybe with a wheelchair and a willing driver, he could!

He shared with me that his younger brother Avery died yesterday. He had terminal cancer. And was 78.

I went on a practice trip this past weekend. A friend from Galloway and I went to Burlington KY to see the Creation Museum. We had a great visit with our friend that recently moved there. But the trip through Cincinnati going down was loaded with crazy drivers. And taking the more scenic route home was too long. Traveling is not as fun now. But I'm coming to the 60th to see all of you that can make it and know it will be worth it! And I'm sorry that I used to expect everyone to come. 'Course we were younger then so maybe that was ok.

Blessings and peace.

Love, Gayle
