  1. I would like all my friends and members to say a prayer for my very good friend Jim.

    Jim had a knee replacement 2 weeks before Christmas, replacement went well ????  Then the went to rehab for the knee. He started getting sick and they moved him to Baylor Hospital in Garland (Dallas area)  Jim is now in a medical coma and on a ventilator. He has Pneumonia  and apparently what they call a fat embolism from the knee surgery got into his blood and went to his lungs. Touch and go right now.

    I'll keep you posted

    Thank you

  5. Thanks WaterHole,  Jim is just one of those guys who never meets a stranger, Always funny and laughing Except for some back surgeries  He is pretty much healthy. A few years back we went to their 50th wedding anniversary and there were over 200 people there. Everybody likes Jim and Corla his wife.
