The Johnson Care Calendar has Openings!
Hello Dear Friends of Tom and Sue
There is a need for volunteers to visit with Tom for either the first or second shifts all this week, including Saturday.
I try to fill in whenever I can, but Tuesdays and Wednesdays are tough for me because of preset commitments (MOW and caring for a special neighborhood child).
I am asking each of you to please check out the care calendar for March and see if you can spend any time with Tom, even if you have to adjust your hours. I can work with you just about any day except for all day Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons.
Sue is now officially in her new rehab facility at 16219 Ranch Road, 620N. The sign “Rapid Recovery” may still be up, but it is Broadmore (sp). The Johnson family is very pleased with the facility and are praying that Sue can get her strength back to care for herself and get home as soon as possible. None of us foresaw the challenging road in recovery for Sue, but she is a fighter and is determined to work hard.
Her only concern when I see her is whether there are still enough volunteers to be with Tom during the day. I always assure her not to worry about that, the fantastic STM parishioners are fully supporting her and Tom.
Please feel free
to pass this email on to any of your STM friends that might not be getting this message. Katherine MacKowski has been great to send my updates on to ALL Ministry Leaders and hopefully these leaders are forwarding the updates to their members, so we can cover as many parishioners as possible.
Dates and Times that are currently open in March:
Tuesday, 5th—3:30-6 or whenever Paul arrives
Friday, 8th—3:30-6 or whenever Paul arrives
Saturday, 9th—10-noon, noon-2-, 2-4:30
If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with me. Everyone who has stayed with Tom remark on how much they have enjoyed their visits with him. He usually takes a nap sometime during the first shift time and needs to walk laps around the house with his walker throughout the day. It helps to encourage him to do these things. Erin Johnson has set out great snacks for the volunteers and Tom needs to have the small bottles of water nearby from the refrigerator.
Be in your Blessings,
