E. J. Smith: (6-1-20rh) Roger Dixon notified me today that E. J. had been admitted to St. Luke’s Hospital Woodlands. I called E.J. and learned that he has developed a bacterial infection in his left hand causing painful swelling and redness. He was admitted to the hospital yesterday and treated with major doses of antibiotics. He thought he was going to be released today, but his hand began to swell again. They are running more test and hopefully we will know more tomorrow. Please pray for a quick recovery for E.J. (UPDATE 6-3-20) We were notified that E.J.’s hand was doing much better and that he was being released from the hospital and going home today.
