Happy Memorial Day everyone. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have given their lives for our country and those military who are stationed overseas and missing their families. We also pray for all the victims of the tornados in Alabama and Joplin, Missouri—certainly a continued wake-up call to never take our loved ones for granted.
As per my brother’s request, I have attached a photo to this post of Joe along with two former UAH students: Willa Cummings (on left) and Meredith Johnston (on right). Joe recently took them out for dinner at Rosie’s. Willa has an interview with a progressive surgical unit at Huntsville Hospital, and Meredith has a job at the Huntsville Hospital ER. Joe commented, “Based on my experiences with them, I’m sure they will be skilled and compassionate nurses.” Our entire family continues to be very grateful to all the medical professionals that have helped and continue to aid in Joe’s recovery, but we have a special place in our hearts for the skilled and compassionate day-to-day care of all the wonderful nurses at Huntsville Hospital and related medical centers!
We continue to exhort all those students of medicine to continue to study diligently as you never know, as Ginny says, “Your knowledge and skill may someday save a life, as you saved the life of my husband.”
Hug your loved ones!
