Erna Friesen is doing extremely well. She is for the most part walking without a cane. Erna thanks her many Saddlebag friends for the cards, phone calls and food. As she said, Saddlebag is a great place to be!
Chet Carter is back at Water's Edge. He was taken to Lake Wales Medical Center with cardiac arrest but after three days they told him he had pneumonia.
Nan Amick was admitted to Lake Wales Medical Center with the problem of swelling of her legs. She is room 312. Tests are being run to determine the cause and treatment of Nan's recurring problem. Cards may be sent to the local address in the directory.
Jay Carter is scheduled to have cataract surgery January 30th. They will not be coming to Saddlebag until mid-February.
Lois Detenbeck is out of ICU at Lake Wales Medical Center and in room 359. Tests will be run today, and Lois hopes to be home for Christmas. Cards may be sent to the local address in the directory.
Wilford Watkins will not be returning to Saddlebag. He has chronic congestive heart disease and has trouble breathing and walking any distance. Wilford and his wife Ollie who passed away five years ago loved living in Saddlebag. Wilford will miss his “buddies" and thanks all for making their retirement years so memorable. His address is 3281 South US 27, Somerset, KY 42501-3030.
Merrill Clementson was taken by ambulance yesterday to Lake Wales Medical Center. After taking many tests since Merrill hasn't been able to eat much, is sick to his stomach and can't keep his meds down, the doctors said his diverticulitis is acting up, most likely from all the antibiotics he's been on since his heart surgery and for the pneumonia in his right lung. Diane is hopeful that Merrill will be home soon. They thank all for the prayers, calls and visits. Cards may still be sent to the local address in the directory.
Please remember our Saddlebag friends with prayers, cards and phone calls.
