Feb 11 - Update on Katie Marsh Rose

I talked to Katie last night. She fell on the ramp outside her condo on Jan 17. She doesn't remember what happened, but she landed on her face. She broke her nose, neck, hand and wrist and had a gash on her head. A stranger saw her on the ground and called for help! She was in the hospital for a week, a nursing home for 2 more. They wanted her to stay longer but she completed all the PT so she could go home!!! She is wearing a body brace for 3 months. She says she's blessed and she is!!!

March 3

I just talked to Gail Blanton. He is having surgery Monday to remove a toe from gangrene. If he has good blood flow after the removal, they will stop there. If not, they will remove more. Please pray that he feels God with him and the medical team. And that no more is needed to be done!!!

Blessings and peace to all of us!!!

Love, Gayle

Gail Blanton had a 2nd surgery today. They took off his foot and half way up his shin.

I just talked to Gail Blanton. He is now in rehab. And hoping to start PT tomorrow. They are supposed to measure for his prosthetic soon too.

The food at rehab is not too bad, but he's not hungry. He needs to build his strength for crutches so he can get up and transfer from bed to wheelchair, etc.

Sending blessings to all of us as we move through our health issues. It's not easy or fun but our support systems can make it bearable.

Love, Gayle

I'm now through all the active treatments for cancer. The last was the every 3 week Herceptin infusion for a year. There is a hiccup of occasional heightened BP that can result with light headedness and dizziness. I called the Oncologist first since she prescribed the oral estrogen blocker I take daily. She told me to contact my PCP about the BP med she has me on and see about adjusting that dosage. I told you all this to say I cancelled my plans to come to the Mini on the 6th. I don't know day to day how I'm going to feel. Hopefully next year I'll have everything balanced and can come to the 60th!!!

Love, Gayle

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. 🚁

August 14

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. 😃
