In response to many inquiries on President Constantino, just wanted to let you know that he is resting at Anne Arundel Hospital, fighting an infection.
Your prayers for a speedy and full recovery are much appreciated.
I will continue to forward well wishes to him and update you as I receive information.
Thank you, Pam Mckay
Brother Tom Jensen shares this message from Mary Caudill:
My dear friends and prayer warriors. I'm asking again to pray for my Russ Caudill. Yesterday morning he suffered a stroke caused by a brain bleed. He was transported from AAMC to George Washington University Hospital in case he worsens and requires surgery. GWUH has an excellent neurosurgery unit. At this point, he is in ICU and the doctors are monitoring him closely. The next 48 hours are critical. He has already received 4 units of plasma and continues to receive medication by IV to keep his blood pressure down.
There are difficult challenges he will face in the next few weeks or months, but all who know Russ knows he will get through this illness. He is a testament of the healing power of prayer. Thank you all so much.
The family asks no phone calls or visitors at this time, they will keep us posted.
Brother Ray Gheen suffered a heart attack on May 31. He was transported to Washington Hospital Center where they found a 50, 70, and 95 percent blockage. He was treated and finally released on Saturday, June 3rd. He was on the road to recovery and then had a setback a couple of days later. He went back to the hospital for another procedure. Ray is now at home resting. Phone calls are welcomed.
Brother Tommy Blandford notified the Retired Association that his cancer is in remission and only has regular check ups to look forward to.
Brother Chuck Scarlata has stage four lung cancer and is asking for the prayers from his Brothers and Sisters of the Retired Association.
He may be contacted at 301-980-6382 or email@example.com
