• Prayers for Alumni & Friends dealing with Health issues:  


  • Rick Jones had successful stomach surgery, now will be receiving immunotherapy every three weeks.

  • Jack Kelley had his throat Cancer return, he too will have immunotherapy every six weeks.

  • Dan Peterson is scheduled for Hip Replacement Feb 7th.

  • Bob Letsch happy with Lazer treatments - some positive results but his balance has been affected - 2 more treatments.

  • Peg Graceffa - Dick '69 wife will be released from Froedtert Rehab Hospital yesterday. She can now walk short distances without her walker. The belt around her waist will be permanent. A retired nurse from Froedtert will come to the house to help Peg shower and do some exercises. She's doing much better than a month ago.

  • Bob McKee former guidance counselor at Park HS and father of SCHS teacher Rob McKee is rehabbing from LF & RT Ankle Surgeries

  • John Miller '56 Hip Replacement Surgery postponed, doctors think he 1st needs a Pacemaker

  • Dick Heidenreich broken leg is healing in Rehab

  • Mike Ptaschinski '68 - Never thought I'd be on the Injured/Prayers List, but was attacked by two pit bulls in my own garage last Thursday night.  Two separate attacks about 2-minutes each. Was bitten on the outer right knee during the first go-round. Then they came back again. Only thing that saved me from another bite was a handsaw I grabbed nearby. A terrifying experience fighting for my life, and I've parachuted and fallen thru the ice a few times.  Puncture wounds, plus dog is not vaccinated for rabies, so I'm on the rabies protocol.  A bunch of shots over the next two weeks. Neighbor's dogs --- they left the front door AND the gate open. Could have been worse --- I was prepping the car to take our grandkids home in 5 minutes.  I'm OK, but those shots aren't fun.  Will keep you posted.




 Special Prayers needed for: 

Chris & Sue Gorman's grandson Eli, Walt Strini, Jim Poulsen, John Hansen, Tom Clazmer, Don Heck, Jack Kelley, Dan Bentz, Tom Konieczko, Ken Kusters, Tom Pulda, Jeff Pulda, Dave O'Brien, George Gordon, Bob Letsch, Bob Garrity, Kathy (Hackl) Wirtz,
