First, I want to thank you for your prayers and many cards and good wishes during my time off for surgery. On March 31st, I had a total knee replacement in my right knee. I thank the Lord that God blessed me with a very good physician—Dr. Robert Winquist at the Swedish Orthopedic Institute in Seattle. God also blessed me with a very supportive helper,my wife, Milbre, who has gone above and beyond to see me through this. I also want to thank Larry Martin for his support in doing a superb job with Seniors Alive Bible Study and teaching the bible Class on Sunday’s.
I am happy to report that my rehab has gone very well and on April 22, I was able to leave the walker and use a cane. I returned to my Bible class Sunday, April 26th and to our Word of Life Fellowship on Wednesday, April 29th.
I heard good reports of the outing to Sumner this past week to the Windmill Nursery and lunch at Dixie’s. In the month of May, we plan to car-pool to the Weyerhaeuser Gardens in Federal Way, on May 27th, and follow up with lunch at the Old Country Buffett. We will not have a bible Study that day. I hope you will plan to meet us there. The Rhode’s should be in full bloom.
Looking forward to the month of June, mark your calendars for June 24th. That is the date for our annual Seniors Picnic at Game Farm Park. We will meet at 11:00 am, lunch at noon and games following.
