David Thompson Update- Entertainment & News, Chapter SC-E 7-20-18

Dear Chapter-E and Friends:

IMPORTANT:  Chapter-E’s Recruiting Event for this Saturday has been postponed- a future date will be determinedSee the below schedule for Saturday’s Activity Plans- those that would like to can join in and visit Chapter-F Saturday.

As many of you have likely heard, Chapter-E’s Membership Enhancement Coordinator (David Thompson) has been in the hospital the last couple of days after having a mild stroke.  Here is the latest information as of this time:

Update from David’s Family this morning:

Real update from doctor: they are treating him as he had a mild stroke. They are waiting on the blood cultures to grow more to check on the blood infection. Doc will be sending both speech and occupational therapist to work with him beginning hopefully today. He is in room 208 here in Greer if anyone wants to call him or come see him. Just know his speech comes and goes so there are times we can not understand what he is trying to say. I swear, and he denies it, that he asked the nurse for an enema this morning. Also, you can text him but he is struggling to text back.

Update from Rhonda this afternoon:

Also, you can text him but he is struggling to text back.

Thinking Forward:

There will likely be some items that David may need some assistance with.  While he cannot “benefit” from being a GWRRA officer, it is entirely acceptable for us, as his friends to reach out and help him in any way that we would like to (or can).  Rhonda and I will be coordinating this effort- if you would like to help in some small way, please let us know and we will be happy to see that assistance!

Please continue to pray for a speedy (and full) recovery!

Good evening!  We were happy that Chapter K of Spartanburg could join us for our ride this past Saturday. We departed later than intended to avoid some rain, but of course, it caught up with us while we were enjoying lunch at Binion’s in NC.  Rain gear saved the day!  Afterwards we enjoyed ice cream with Renee & Eugene of Chapter F in Easley. Tuesday night brought several together for our Visitor’s Dinner. I think everyone came to see Toni since we’ve missed her smiling face! We were pleasantly surprised to have Donna Watson join us too. She is enjoying her retirement!  I personally enjoyed talking with our visitor Michelle’s son Heath. I believe he and Lyle could talk about music all day!
