Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the Keyboard World whiteboard in the classroom. We welcomed a guest visitor, Linda Winebrenner, who joined us today for the class and accompanied us to Traditions/Whispering Pines/Springs Country Store after class. We learned that John Lynch is doing much better now that he’s on dialysis; that Diane and Rosie are also feeling much better after their recent health issues, as is Frank Batchelor. Mike Gallaher has had an upper respiratory infection in the past week, which necessitated going to the clinic and taking an antibiotic. He did make class this week, however, though he’s not feeling 100% well just yet. Ellie now has “the pip” or whatever it is. Also, Betty Twigg is having problems health-wise, as well.
Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. We discussed the ailing people in our group. John Lynch seems to be doing better on Dialysis. He has energy enough to walk over to Rosie’s house and he even drove himself to the Dialysis procedure on Wednesday. That’s good news. Both Rosie and Diane are feeling much better. Elaine Twigg is also doing better now, too. Emma Harr, however, has been in the hospital because of a minor heart attack. She’s back home now. A card for Emma was circulated around the class, but it didn’t get back to Ellie so she could mail it. Who knows where it is? Ellie announced that the National Christian Choir will be returning to St. Luke’s Church for a performance in August of this year. The exact date and time will be announced as soon as that information is available. Ellie announced that Golden Living Center is having their Volunteer Banquet at the Outdoor Sports Club on April 16th at 6 p.m. Six Notables plan to attend.
Ellie announced that the Dates to Remember were included in the agenda for the Executive Committee Meeting, which was scheduled to be held at the end of the class on April 8th. We talked about those in the group who are having specific health issues and announced again that the Executive Committee would be held this day. We were surprised to hear that Emma Harr, Carol’s mother, is in the hospital. Bill Ewing said that she possibly had a heart attack. Both John and Diane are getting better from their attack of food poisoning or a virus that they both had over the Easter weekend. Rosie seems to be much better, we’re pleased to report.
Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the white board in the Keyboard World Classroom. She passed around the invitations mentioned in the Dates to Remember for April 13 and 15 (See above). Bill & Ellie have the invitation for Devlin, and others were given the phone number to RSVP by April 8th if they choose to attend. If anyone is interested in attending the dinner at Allegany, the phone number is 301-777-5941. Contact person is Tara Richards. RSVP by April 13th to be included. Only two complimentary dinners are given to a given organization. The group made the decision to hold the Executive Committee Meeting in the KBW Classroom on April 8th and then to go to Bob Evans for lunch after the meeting.
Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the white board in the Keyboard World Classroom. The students were reminded to pay Rosie for their meal at the upcoming Quarterly. Also, they need to pay their dues ($25.00) for the Notables Organ Club any time now. The treasury is LOW! We discussed who’s bringing what. Individuals are asked to bring their own drinks. Sylvia is bringing popcorn; Bill is bringing chips. Please don’t forget to bring “whatever” for the Jumble Sale.
Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and we talked about our members who are ill or having difficulty of some sort—Rosie Morgan, Diane Morgan, John Lynch, and Betty Twigg. Their situations are improving somewhat, but they have a long way to go. Betty Twigg’s grandson, Chris, is to be operated on tomorrow in Hagerstown, as far as we know.
We have five people who are very ill right now—Rosie Morgan with bronchitis or pneumonia. The medics don’t seem to be sure which problem is what Rosie is experiencing. Diane Morgan with pneumonia. She’s on antibiotics and bed rest. John Lynch who has on-going health issues involving dialysis for stage IV kidney disease, breathing difficulties and more. Betty Twigg has had an intestinal virus of some sort, which has also gone all through her grandson’s family. They got over the virus quickly, but Betty has been severely weakened by it. Shirley Hoopengarner has ongoing problems with her rheumatoid arthritis. The pain is very bad now. Everything hurts. She has made arrangements to go to Dr. Day’s Pain Management group to see if that will help. We could write about other aches and pains and health issues, as our group is aging, and people our age spend more time in doctors’ offices and hospitals and funerals than they do at weddings and baby showers. That’s for sure!
Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the Keyboard World white board. She checked with Betty Twigg to see if she has contacted Marshall Armentrout regarding playing music for the March 25th Spring Quarterly and inquired as to whether or not she and Rosie Morgan plan to do a duet or two for that event. Please advise Ellie as soon as possible as she is now actively working on the Spring issue of Musically Speaking.
Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the white board in the Keyboard World Classroom. She distributed copies of the agenda for the February Executive Committee Meeting, which we began in class and continued (but unstructured) at DaVinci’s during lunch.
Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard at the Keyboard World Classroom. We were happy to see Rosie Morgan back in class and feeling so much better today. At the same time we were dismayed to hear of John Lynch’s continuing troubles. There is, however, a chance that he won’t have to go on dialysis right now. He has changed doctors to Dr. Welik. John remained in the hospital for today for chest x-rays and blood work. The medics are trying to improve his breathing problem. Nothing was said about correcting the losing of blood in the large intestine. Perhaps John was discharged from the hospital today, but I haven’t heard that for sure. Diane is going through a lot of stress and spending lots of hours in the hospital with John. Please pray for both of them. Betty Twigg missed class today because of a doctor’s appointment to see about her painful stomach and bloating. The doctor told her it was probably irritable bowel syndrome, but has scheduled several tests to confirm his diagnosis.
