Sitting in rehab with my girl
Barb just finished a pt session and surprisingly did well. She is weak from being in bed since last Monday. Trying to get the calories in her and hopefully head to the ranch soon. She says thanks from the bottom of her heart (some things you never forget)- we ❤ you dearly

Prayers for Barb and JD
I rarely check this board any more, but Leo shared news with us via the Facebook WH group. We miss you both, and know these are trying times.

Update on Barb
.Barb had surgery on Friday to amputate her right leg. The surgeon was pleased with the outcome with no surprises or problems. She is weak and alert. Her appetite is not good and we have a concern about her calorie input. She is not aware of the type of surgery due to her memory issues. Wilkhall, Camp Wahoo, and all my extended family gave me the support I needed to work through this crisis. God bless each and everyone who has reached out to me and Barb. The battle is not over and hopefully she can go to rehab knowing how much love she has received from each of you.

This is one time we need your prayers
Barb is at Duke Raleigh Hospital- tomorrow she will have her right leg amputated knee down-she has an artery blockage that cannot be repaired. Her memory issue plus the operation has old JD
asking for you to pray for both of us. We still look forward to celebrating our 65th anniversary on December 24th if the Good Lord willing. I cried all the way back home from Raleigh yesterday and still crying this am. Barb doesn't really understand what is going to happen, she just smiles and gives me a kiss.

I'm happy to say that Barb shows signs of improvement
we have taken her off seizure drugs and that was a great improvement. Keeping her calm and slowing down her restlessness were major factors. Her long term memory is incredible- her
short term is the problem. With support from family, friends, church, and my wilkhall family, I
feel much better for both of us. Thanks for your love and support-JD

Say a prayer for JD and Barb
My precious Barb has been diagnosed with dementia- we both are having a tough time.
Her treatment so far is not working and she has gotten worse. I am physically and mentality
worn out trying to care for her. My childhood sweetheart and soul mate for 64 years needs your prayers.

Grandson reports for his fist assignment as an Airforce Second Lieutenant
drove his 96 Ford truck with a UHaul trailer 1200+ miles to Abilene Texas. He will be in quarantine
for two weeks before reporting for the real deal. He is the first military man since his old Papaw
was a warrior in the Army. He has had a passion for military service and now it's a reality. Proud of this young man.

Will be heading to Wise County today- not a pleasant trip
My 95 year old sister passed away this week and I will be going to her service today. She will be
buried beside her husband, mom, and dad. Barb and I as teenagers would go on our weekend
date to her house and enjoy the company of two little girls who are now 75 and 70. We won't be
able to do our usual family hugs but our love for each other will be evident. Barb will stay home
for safety reasons.
