Update and New House Guests here at Martha’s Vineyard !

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!

Prayer Update on Our House Guests here at Martha’s Vineyard

Dear Family and Friends:
Glen Crayton, from Andalusia, AL is making progress!  He was moved to Select Specialty Hospital late yesterday.  He is sitting up in a chair and has started eating soft foods!  This is truly an answer to prayers!  His lovely wife Elberta and children will be trading off here at Martha’s Vineyard so that Glen will always have someone during the day.  Please continue to pray for continued advancement for Glen!
Mary Sorgius is making progress on her right leg fracture and skin grafts. Randy, her husband, Melinda, their daughter and friend, Sue are trying to keep her spirits high.  They are trying to get everything in line to have her transferred to a rehabilitation center near Indianapolis, IN, their home. But the paperwork!  It is unreal for them to get everything lined up.  Please continue to pray for a quick healing for Mary.
Mary Lieweke is still recovering from her car accident.  She has a broken right leg, and several very sore broken ribs.  She is at Solaris Rehabilitation center.  Richard, her husband is trying hard also to arrange transport back to Illinois to a rehab that is just 2 miles from their house. But, because Mary is now on oxygen, the transfer has become more complicated.  Please continue to pray for both of them as they try to get home safely.  Richard, himself, is still healing from incisions caused from the car accident
Please continue to pray for Rose Ammerman.  She is still at Select Specialty Hospital recuperating from her quadruple bypass and rehabilitation for her right leg above the knee amputation.  Her daughter, Marybeth and grand-daughter, Melissa are still with us.
Please continue to pray for our friend, secretary, and bookkeeper, Judy Churchwell.  Due to “aggressive” gardening last weekend, Judy now has confirmed C 5 & 6 bulging discs.  She is trying to get into a spinal neuro-surgeon as soon as possible.  With extreme pain nearly constant, she can barely maneuver herself from her lazy-boy to her bed.  She still has numbness of her left hand too.  This is NOT the Judy we know.  Please continue to pray for her. She is such a dear friend and our “right-arm” here at Martha’s Vineyard!
Love, Always in His Name!

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

Dear Family and Friends:
Yes we have a long list of prayer concerns, but Our God is Always There!
Please be in prayer for the William Scroggins family.  “Bill” passed away quietly with his wife, Mary and children by his bedside at the Joyce Goldenberg Covenant Hospice here in Pensacola.  Services were yesterday.
Rose Ammerman is still recovering slowly at Select Hospital.  She had a quadruple heart bypass and with later complications, had to have her right leg amputated just above the knee.  She is 83 years old.  Her daughter, Marybeth, and grand-daughter Melissa are still with us.  Great people!  Please continue your prayers for recovery of Rose.
Glen Crayton is still at Sacred Heart ICU.  Was still on a ventilator at last word from his wife, Elberta.  They are from the Andalusia, AL area.  Please continue to pray for Glen.  He had to have his entire large colon removed.  He is still very critical.
Alvis Respress was able to go home this week after removal of his tumor in his colon.  His wife Mary was with us.  Adorable couple!  He was 91 years young and is doing great!  Mary is 88 years young!  They are from Andalusia, AL.
Mary Sorgius is still at Sacred Heart hospital.  She had a “incident” with a moped.  Broke her right leg in multiple places.  Please continue to pray that the skin grafts take.  They have plated and place a rod in upper and lower right leg.  We have so enjoyed having Randy, her husband and now daughters from Indianapolis, IN area.
Blessings and Peace to All!
Love, Always in His Name!

Dear Family and friends:
Let’s just say it is a little busy here.
Rose Ammerman is still recuperating from her heart attack and right leg amputation.  She is still at Select Hospital.  She still has chest tubes and remains on oxygen.  Her daughter Marybeth, grand-daughter, Melissa are still with us.  We are expecting the other two grandchildren who are both in college in the up-coming week.  Please continue to pray for this entire family.
Mary Lieweke is still recovering from her multiple broken right femur and right-sided broken ribs from their car accident 2 weeks ago.  Richard, her husband is staying with us and has to go every few days to get his bandages changed by the doctors at Sacred Heart medical group.  Mary is at Solaris rehabilitation center.  Please continue to pray for both of them  As yet, Mary cannot put any weight on the right leg yet.
We welcomed in Randy Sorgius from Indianapolis, IN. He and his wife Mary were on vacation in Orange Beach, AL when Mary had a terrible moped accident.  Open wound fracture of her right femur.  Is to have another surgery tomorrow at Sacred Heart Hospital.  Randy is “bunking” with Richard here at the Vineyard.  We are out of room!
Because, we are going to welcome in Mary Respress, whose husband is having colon surgery tomorrow at Sacred Heart hospital. His name is Alvis Respress.

Thank you Penny Cavender for taking in the Scroggins family. William Scroggins is at Baptist Hospital, on 100% oxygen and palliative care.  According to wife Mary, he has only a few days left here on this earth.  Penny is taking in his daughter, son-in-law, and wife.
Thank you Grace Barry for taking in Elberta Crayton. Glen Crayton is on dialysis, and had to have his entire large colon removed due to sepsis.  He is in the ICU at Sacred Heart Hospital.
All of these people need our prayers. I am just so sorry I had to turn down 8 other people because, honestly I had no place to put them.  Please be in prayer for all of these family members.
Love, Always in His Name!

Update on Our House Guests here at Martha’s Vineyard and New House Guests!

Felix Vega Lopez, our active duty Navy guy is back in town with his family staying with Penny Cavender.  Felix is back for more doctor’s appointments.  Looking at further surgery on that right knee.  BUT, the good news is that the U.S. Navy wants to keep Felix!  He is so excited to remain in the U.S. Navy!  This is a very big prayer answered.  Keep praying for a speedy recovery for him.  Thanks so much Penny for your help too!
Richard Lieweke and his wife, Mary are slowly getting better.  Mary is at Solaris Rehabilitation center. I spoke to her and she said the hardest part about any exercise is the fact she cannot put any weight on the broken right leg.  Plus with multiple broken ribs, it hurts to just breathe.  Richard was able to replace his car.  He goes to multiple doctors here as a follow up to his recovery too.  Mary is 81 years young, and Richard is 83.  Please continue to pray for both of them .  Just a lovely couple from southern Illinois.
Welcomed in today Marybeth Schillace and her adorable 16 year old daughter, Melissa.  Marybeth’s other two adult children will be joining her as they all are very concerned about Rose Amerman, Marybeth’s mother who underwent a quadruple heart bypass, and right leg amputation above the knee.  Ouch!  Rose, who is widowed was staying with a friend when her health suddenly deteriorated two weeks ago.  After a week in the Ft. Walton Center, she was transferred to Select Hospital here in Pensacola.  Marybeth and Melissa needed a place close to Select.  Melissa is such a sweet heart.  A special needs child with down’s syndrome, she is trying hard to understand everything that has happened to her Grandma.  They are from the Fingerlakes Region of upstate NY.
Continue to pray for Trevor Bazzel too.  He is on the “schedule” to move to Houston, TX possibly next week.  According to mom, Lisa, he is making good progress at the stroke rehab at West Florida Rehabilitation center.  His speech is improving more each day.  He is slowly improving on the walking and right sided movement.
We are full, we are busy, but God is in control!
Love, Always in His Name!

Prayer Update and New House Guests here at Martha’s Vineyard!

Dear Family and Friends:

We welcomed in yesterday Richard Leiweke. Both he and his wife, Mary M. Leiweke were traveling through Pensacola this past week when, as Richard told me, he inadvertently missed the turn signal and turned in front of a car on Airport Street. His wife has a broken leg, several broken ribs. They were both hospitalized Richard was released. Mary is now at a local rehab, Solaris, for further rehabilitation. They will be with us for at least a couple more weeks before they can travel back to Illinois. Per Richard, at 83 he made a terrible mistake and he is so sorry that his wife took the brunt of the accident. Please be in prayer for this sweet couple as Mary continues to heal.

Trevor Bazzel is doing great at West Florida’s stroke rehab! Now walking 60 feet, and with the help of some electronic therapy, actually biked 2 1/2 miles! His mom, Lisa is so proud of him. He is supposed to be transferred to Texas this week. Keep those prayers coming!

Love, Always in His Name!
