I want to thank James Paul Jessup for bringing us fresh cucumbers and the Cartwright’s for the home grown cantaloupes. Fresh vegetables and fruits are the best!
Dwight Collins passed out when he stood up from a chair on his porch and hit his head on the cement. That broke his neck. He is doing so great! Strongwilled and set on getting better. Dwight was in the hospital four days. Tina, his wife, is helping him with dressing, bathing, eating, etc., and driving to appointments. They had shower rails installed, to help steady him in the tub. They have had many visitors and many offers for help. Dwight goes back to the doctor in about three weeks to make sure he is healing properly. He has to wear a neck brace all the time and he says he is getting used to it. Please say some prayers for Dwight and Tina Collins.
