Dear Family and Friends:
We welcomed in last night Troy Donach, husband of wife, Abby, who is a patient at Baptist Hospital. Ms. Abby developed an abscess that required skin grafting. She is doing some better but in a lot of pain according to Troy. They are from the Andalusia, AL area. Troy’s aunt, Mary Ann Bennington is also still at Baptist recovering. She is to go home hopefully by tomorrow. She, too, is from Andalusia.
Talked with the family of Alice Oakleaf. Her sepsis is getting better. Parents, Ernie and Zoe Oakleaf from Little Rock, AR, are back in to visit with her. Very nice people. They say she still has a few days to go.
Zakk Gossett remains at Sacred Heart. Mom, Melissa Smith, from Arlington, TX, was going to try and come back in this week. Have not heard from her yet. Zakk is recovering from a car accident in which he did a 360 deg flip. Had several broken bones, and a head injury.
Jessica Gajka is still in chemotherapy treatment for stage 4 breast and liver cancer. When in town, being taken care of by Penny Cavender. Thanks again so much Penny! Jessica’s husband is active duty Air Force. Please remember them in your prayers. Jessica is just 34 years young.
Per Kelly Kachele, Larry had his “3 month hospital” birthday today. She states his recovery is slow, but steady. Eating soft foods. Can speak short sentences. Moving more appropriately too. He is at Select Specialty Hospital. Recovering from a near-fatal motorcycle accident can be slow going. But, this guy is getting there!
Please continue to pray for Terasa Knoll at Baptist Hospital too. Still trying to move to North Carolina for rehabilitation for her broken neck and paralysis of her spine.
Blessings to all as we travel back to Indiana for Doug Tackett’s praise celebration of his life. Dennis and I believe that a person who knows Christ deserves a “Praise Celebration!” of their life to come!!! We personally thank all our volunteers who are assisting us at the Vineyard while we are gone. With out them, we could not do everything we do. Thank you Jamie and the college class for the meal! Also to you, Diane!
Love, Always in His Name!
