Dear Family and Friends:
It has been a busy week here at the Vineyard!
Both of our Marys’ got to go home. Mary Sorgius was transported via Wings of Grace, a non-profit group that only charges for the fuel back to Indianapolis, IN. She will be able to continue her rehabilitation for her broken leg and skin grafts at a site only 6 miles from their home. Randy, her husband, daughter, Melinda, and friend Sue could not have been more appreciative of all the ministry staff that took the time to come and see them at Sacred Heart. Thank you to all for those prayers.
Mary Lieweke was able to be transferred back to Illinois via a medial team with a nurse that Richard, her husband just happened to join 2 years ago for $145/year. Emergency Assistance Plus picked her up with her oxygen, and air-transported her to St. Louis, MO, then by ground transport to southern Illinois, all for his $145 past paid fee! Wow! He was telling me when he signed up for this plan he had NO idea he would ever use it. Mary is now just 2 miles from their home in a rehabilitation center! These were such a delightful little couple. Please continue to pray for a speedy recovery for Mary’s broken leg and ribs.
Glen Crayton was recently moved to Select Hospital. His wife, Elberta is so sweet. She is still asleep as I write this note! She came in exhausted last night. Glen is a miracle! He had to have is entire large colon removed for a tumor. He is on dialysis, and a diabetic. BUT, he is a survivor. Elberta felt in her heart not to give up on him. He is currently sitting up in a chair, eating soft to mid-soft foods now. Please continue to pray for both of them. They are from Andaulusia, AL.
Per Marybeth Schillace, Rose Ammerman has finally had the chest tubes taken out! Who-hoo! Rose had a massive heart attack and had to have her right leg amputated above the knee due to clots. She also had a quadruple by-pass surgery. Rose still has a long way to go. She is still at Select Specialty Hospital too.
Yesterday, we welcomed in the family of active duty, U.S. Navy Victor Andrews. Mom and dad are from Houston, TX. Victor, while working at the Naval Hospital, had a work incident that caused him to have a left shoulder fracture. He is having surgery at the Andrews Institute now as we write this update. He will be recovering here at Martha’s Vineyard for a few days before he returns back to NAS. Mom and dad, Cherita and Victor Sr. were so grateful to have heard about us! With this being a holiday weekend, they knew there was no way to even find a hotel room remotely close. Please pray that Victor comes through this surgery well! We SO support are military!!
On this note, we here at Martha’s Vineyard are proudly displaying our U.S. Flags this weekend in support of ALL military currently serving and have given their all for our freedom and safety. Take a moment to lift them up in prayer and thanks for their service!!!!
Love, Always in His Name!
