Aspen Leaves
Dear Family and Friends:
Friday we welcomed in the family of Michael Shirley from Panama City, FL.  Wife, Kristy and daughter, Christine are staying with us.  Michael is at Select Specialty Hospital on a a ventilator.  He was transferred to Select with, according to Kristy a long list of health problems: Pneumonia, Atrial fibrillation, liver dysfunction, right-sided paralysis, nose bleed, and an inability to breathe on his own.  Wow!  Do keep Mr. Mike in prayer.
David Cliborne, from Harmony FL continues to remain on a ventilator at Baptist Hospital also.  According to wife, Darlene, he has a serious lung infection now.  His sister, and brother are both in from out of town.  He continues to be in extreme pain from six broken ribs on his left side.  Darlene was telling me that his lungs have just “slightly” improved on xray today.  He has an pneumonia and fluid accumulation in both lungs too.  Son, Lee had to go back to work but is already planning on being back here at the first of the week.
Bernice McGhee was moved to the Haven for rehabilitation for her broken hip fracture.  Daughter, Brenda Johnson said any cards or visitors would greatly improve her mother’s attitude.  At “80” something, mom is used to living on her own.  Brenda was sharing with us that possible living decisions are going to be on the table soon for mom.
Baby Hero, and sister Julia are LOVING all the attention while they get to stay with mommy, Penny, and Bob Cavender.  Thanks so much Ms. Penny for taking care of our U.S. Navy family for the next few weeks until mom and children are safe to fly south and await Felix returning from the middle east.
Please be in prayer for the Hube family.  Brian Hube lost his battle with cancer this past week at West Florida.  An memorial service is going to be held at a later date for the family.  Robin expressed many thanks for all the prayers for Brian.  She shared with us he knew he was going home to heaven.  As you recall, Robin lost her husband, Brian’s brother just July 1, 2017.  A third brother is also battling cancer.  This family really needs our prayers.
Blessings to all of you!
Love, Always in His Name!

New House Guests and Prayer Updates here at Martha’s Vineyard

Dear Family and Friends:

Please continue to pray for Brian Hube.  He is at West Florida Hospital Hospice Care center.  His family is coming back from Belleview, FL.  Denise Hube, his sister-in-law, niece, Katie, and another niece will be traveling back to be with Brian.

Jim McGowan was able to transfer back to DeFuniak Springs, FL to a rehabilitation center close to he and Robin–his wife’s home.  Doing great according to Robin.  Gaining strength to be able to walk on his own accord.

It has been awhile, but do you all remember Felix Lopez?  He was the young active duty Navy I.T. guy that was literally run over by a truck on his way back to the Navy base In January 2016. He had just made the final payment on wedding bands. While stationed in Japan, Felix had met his wife.  Felix sustained a C-1 & C-2 fracture.  Both were fused, and he was able to return to school and full duty.  Yayoto, Felix’s wife got her U.S. passport, and moved here permanently to the U.S.  later in 2016.  As the Navy goes, Felix got deployed to the Middle East early this year.  Before Felix left, he knew he was going to miss the birth of their second child before he would get back this coming November.  Due to necessity being near a Naval Hospital, Yayoto had come back from staying with Felix’s parents in south Florida.  She has been staying with our back-up houses- Penny Cavender. The baby was due first of next week.  Julia, the almost 3 year old has staying with Ms. Penny, too.  Tuesday, Yayoto went to see a fellow Navy mom, who was going to also watch Julia while she went to the Naval hospital to have her baby.  That evening, you guessed it, Yayoto went into labor- fast.  She delivered her new little boy 6 minutes after she hit the E.R. door!  It is a VERY good thing she was close to that Naval Hospital.   Mom and baby are doing great.  They will all be staying with Penny and her husband, Bob, for at least 6 more weeks until she is safe to fly south and await Felix’s return to the U.S.  They are to be stationed next in San Francisco, CA.   IF you like, please send Mr. & Mrs. Lopez any cards and well-wishes on the birth of their new son here to Martha’s Vineyard.  111 Euclid Street, Pensacola, FL  32503.  At this time, Felix will get to see his new son possibly in late November, 2017.  This occurs so often for our deployed active duty military.  They give us so much to serve our country.  Please keep this family in your prayers.

Per Susie Lo, Jordan, our other U.S. Navy guy is doing well in rehabilitation in San Pablo, CA. He continues to do speech, occupational, and physical therapy.  Susie is staying at the Fisher House while being there every day for her son.  Jordan sustained near-death injuries when a drunk driver hit him and 6 other Naval officers while they were walking along Hwy. 98 near the Florida/Alabama line in Orange Beach, FL.  Any encouragement cards can be sent here also.

Blessings to all.

Love, Always in His Name!

Prayer Updates on Our House Guests here at Martha’s Vineyard!

Dear Family and Friends:
What a busy week this has been again!  Continue to pray for Larry Kachelle along with his wife, Kelly.  Larry is to go to his home August 1, 2017 after being in either a hospital, rehabilitation hospital, or other rehabilitation center for over 18 months!  Friends and family are getting the house ready for Larry to go home!  Per Kelly, God is given ALL the praise for this accomplishment!  Having suffered a near-fatal motorcycle accident last March, 2016, Larry is living proof that God is in the miracle business!
Continue to pray for our U.S. Navy guy, Jordan Lo.  Per mom, Jordan is doing fantastic in California in a military rehabilitation hospital.  Susie, Jordan’s mom is very thankful that she is now being able to stay at the Fisher house which is directly across the street from the rehabilitation hospital Jordan is in.  She was telling me that physical therapy is an every day event for Jordan.  He is not walking yet, but is moving that left side more and more!  Praise God for ALL blessings!
Jim McGowan, at Select hospital here in Pensacola is looking to be transferred to an area hospital for an ablation and possible/probable pacemaker according to his wife, Robin.  Jim’s heart rate continues to be erratic.  Robin was telling me they have “pulled every rabbit out of the bag”  and that he is probably getting moved this week.  Jim is retired Navy.  Great people.  He is only 69 years young!
Continue to pray for Brian Hube.  Mr. Brian is at West Florida Palliative care center.  His sister-in-law, and niece are running back and forth from Ocala, FL  Denise Hube had a job interview this past week.  She shared with me she lost her job very soon after her husband died.  There is not one of us that at some time, or many times in our lives we all wondered why all the bad luck “seemed” to be falling down on us alone.
“All of you who are weary and loaded down with burdens, and I will give you rest”... Matthew 11:28
Praying for the entire Hube family.
Blessings to all!
Love, Always in His Name!

Dear Family and Friends:
Jim McGowan is still at Select Hospital in the ICU undergoing positive pressure therapy to keep his oxygen levels up and his work of breathing down according to his wife, Robin, who is staying with us.  Great people.  They are from the Defuniak Springs, FL area.
Welcomed in the family of Brian Hube.  Denise and Katie Hube are from the Ocala, FL area.  Mr. Brian is in the hospice care area at West Florida Hospital.  Sadly, Brian lost his brother earlier this month from cancer also.  He was Denise’s husband.  Katie is his niece.  This has been a really tough road for this family.  Please keep them in prayer.
Heard from Susie Lo, Jordan Lo’s mom.  Jordan is in physical therapy every day in San Palo, CA.  According to Susie, Jordan is doing really well in rehabilitation.  Please continue to pray for U.S. Navy guy!
Blessings to all.

Dear Family and Friends:
God is STILL Our Great Physician!  Payne Jones is off the heart-lung bypass called ECMO, off oxygen, out of ICU, and is about to go home!!!  Yeah!!  According to his parents, they are not sure exactly what infection attacked his lungs, but he is doing really well now!  He was really sick prayer partners.  His parents have told me repeatedly they are ever so grateful for all the prayers, support staff at Baptist hospital, visits from First Baptist Church ministers, and cards from everyone.  We are just excited for the Jones family too!
Welcomed in Robin McGowan from Defuniak Springs, FL.  Her husband, retired Navy, was transferred from Eglin Air Force base hospital a few days ago to Select Specialty hospital’s ICU unit.  Per Robin, Jim’s breathing became difficult and he was put in the mask breathing apparatus, “Bi-Pap”.  They are trying hard to stabilize him and keep from intubating him.  Their son is to fly in from Nebraska to be with mom and dad.
Got word from Kelly Kachelle.  Husband, Larry is to finally go home August 1!  His motorcycle accident was March, 2016.  Spent time in a hospital in Georgia.  Transferred here to Select Specialty, then several months at Shepherd’s in Atlanta.  From there, Larry went to Orlando rehab, then Mt. Dora.  Friends and family are renovating the house to bring Larry home!  According to Kelly, his speech, cognitive, and physical abilities are SO much better!  She gives all praise to Our Lord!  We keep praying until our families get home!!!
Blessings to all!
Love, Always in His Name!

New House Guests and Prayer Up Dates here at Martha’s Vineyard: The Family House!

Dear Family and Friends:
The Allen family have actually been on our wait list here @ Martha’s Vineyard.  Linda Allen’s son sustained a head injury 3 weeks ago.  He is at Sacred Heart hospital and according to Ms. Linda, expected to be there for possibly another 2 months.  Wow!  Mom, aunt, and Joshua Allen’s brother will be staying with us.  Please lift them up in your prayers today.  They are from Mobile, AL.
Talked to Cody Flowers yesterday.  Mom, Jeanette Flowers is doing well considering she is a brain aneurysm survival/stroke.  Cody is learning to do all of her home care he was telling me.  At 26, this young man is going home to literally take care of both of his parents.  Dad has severe congestive heart failure.  Please pray for this entire family as this young man will take on a tremendous task–yet, he was telling me, this is what he must do, and he does it with tremendous love for both of his parents.  They are from the Cullman, AL area.
Update on Jordan Lo:  Mom, Susie was telling me that Jordan who sustained being hit by a drunk driver at the “Mullet Festival” in FL/AL line is progressing rapidly!  He has learned how to transfer himself from his bed to a wheelchair!  According to his uncle Don, this particular re-habilitation hospital is just top notch!  They are stimulating Jordan’s left arm with a stimulator and Jordan whom in the past could hardly move his left arm is now picking up things!  Wow!  He continues to work on speech, memory, and physical therapy of his entire body.  Please do keep in prayer for him and his family.  There is a “Fisher House” very close to this wonderful rehabilitation hospital but because they are full, Susie is having to stay at a nearby motel.  She was telling me she may have to wait another month just to get into the Fisher House.  Fisher Houses are on several military bases and offer no cost stay, laundry, and meals just like our own Martha’s Vineyard: The Family House does.
We continue to also lift us Larry Kachele.  Larry, as you remember sustained an horrific motorcycle accident more than a year ago in southern Georgia.  Kelly has NEVER left his side.  Now in a rehabilitation hospital in Mt. Dora, FL, Kelly has told me that Larry is regaining strength, cognitive abilities, and weight!  From Kelly: “God is working thru His people to bless us and remind us He is sovereign and loves us dearly!  All of you have given us encouraging texts, cards, gifts, visits, and help working on our present house to help pay for renovation construction needed to bring Larry home.  Thank you ALL for this, Lord Jesus and Your followers!”
Blessings to All!
Love, Always in His Name!

P.S.  Thank you Diana, Judy, and Candy for watching over Martha’s Vineyard last week.  We got to go on our first “real” vacation since Martha’s Vineyard started.  We didn’t go far, actually just Ft. Walton Beach, FL.  Had a wonderful time with our children and grandchildren!  Even with TWO tropical storms, Marc, our Navy kid took time to teach the grandchildren how to paddle board– in between rain!  Back at the house, our wonderful volunteers took care of our house guests and even delivered a litter of kittens for us!  They all get the “T” shirt– “Official OBCYN” delivery Team!
