May has been a busy month, with as many as 3 in the hospital at one time.  Gilbert’s heart valve replacement went very well.  He was transferred to a rehab hospital for a few weeks, and then returned to PG.  He says his memory is worse, though it is surprising what he does remember sometimes.  He continues to improve as he settles back in to the routine at PG.  His nephews wife, Gloria Reese, came from Minneapolis and spent a few days with him in the hospital.  Here’s a picture of Gloria and the Damon and Rachel Olson family with Gilbert before his surgery.  My mom’s cousin, Audrey Fuller visited from PA, and is shown here with Gilbert in the rehab hospital.  She was in LA for several years when Gilbert was the overseer.

John Culver fell and broke his femur at his hip.  They ended up doing a hip replacement.  Then he was transferred to the same rehab hospital as Gilbert.  Here’s a picture of Jack, Gilbert, John and Kathy in the rehab hospital.  Also, more recently, Lois and John.  We’re hoping John will be able to come home from the hospital next week.

Jean also went to the hospital, twice, with an infection.  She’s currently recuperating at Kent and Linda Opels.  We hope she can return to PG next week also.

The other 6 residents are doing fine.  Dad is happy to be mowing again.  Elton has a new hearing aid.  Marybelle will travel to see her sister in Kansas in June.

Here’s another picture of Gloria Reese with the Nordic’s wolf Zeus and with 3 of our Furrow grandkids, Maren, Maven and Evren.  Yvonne Wilson from Trinidad visited, shown here with Fern.  Patty Maki brought Diane Hensley to visit.

Loren and Kenion visited, shown here with Audrey.  Also Elton visited Roger at the nursing home.  Kathy had a birthday in May.

We did have a few bluebonnets, and now the lily pads have started to bloom.

Kathy and I spent some wonderful days in Israel in May.  Some of you know some of these folks in Haifa and Jaffa (Joppa).
