  • 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,
