Club Member Updates
Warren Hanks – He is home and says he is doing better, but progress is slow. Hopes the THIRD procedure they did to solve the urinary tract infection will be a success. So do we, Warren! He probably will not be able to return to Rotary for two or three more weeks. Take care, we miss you, and return when you are able.
Sol Jacobson – Unfortunately, they had to take their son Silas to the ER at Children’s Mercy Hospital last Sunday. He was admitted and is still in the NICU. Hemoglobin counts were low, and he had an infection. They have had to reduce his feedings due to the IV fluids, and he has had a blood transfusion. Silas will be two months old this week and remains at six pounds. Sol says there is no time frame to bring him home and that it has been a roller coaster. Sol, Ali & Silas, all of us send our thoughts and prayers, and remember, WE ARE available if there is anything you need.
