Dillon, took a hospital bed to Jake. He had fallen recently and broke some ribs
and is having difficulty getting out of bed. I called him today and spoke with
his youngest sister, Shirley. She said they were very appreciative of the
guys bringing out the bed. She told me that Jake has been having some
problems recently and falls. They think he blacks out but he doesn't ever
remember what happens. He is scheduled to go in and have a pacemaker in a
couple of weeks and they hope that will take care of the problem. His
wife, Nancy, also recently fell and they are both on walkers. Shirley
said they appreciate all prayers. If anyone has a trapeze bar for a
hospital bed, to loan, Jake is in need of one.
