Craziness Ensues

I just wanted to let everyone know that I haven’t been sucked into a blackhole! The past few days have been insane with medical issues and I haven’t had the presence of mind to write a post recently.

My wife had surgery yesterday in order to repair a torn miniscus in her knee, I had a consultation, x-rays and an MRI to diagnose a problem I am having in my neck and shoulder, AND tomorrow mornimg at 7:40 a.m. my grandson Jackson is being operated on to have tubes put in his ears to correct a consistant infection issue. I am going to the hospital with my daughter Megan since Andy, her husband is on his way to Westminster, MD to attend his Great-Uncle Jake’s funeral, and then is traveling to Louisville, KY to attend his Uncle John’s funeral. The two men died one day appart.

So, with all of that said, lots of prayers are requested! I will surely appreciate it!

I couldn’t sign off without an inspirational picture of my little buddy Jackson, sound asleep a few minutes ago, unaware of his day tomorrow at the hospital. God love him!


I’ll be back soon my friends! Thank you in advance for your prayers! – Jim

        Many thanks to you for posting it even more prominently and elaborating the material on a remarkable guy’s history. Just think, he almost certainly stood on those same back steps pounding chalky erasers at HNS, just like so many of us.
