Interim Finished

This past Sunday was my last time of being with Raritan Baptist Church as their interim ministry. I hope to visit Area III churches over the next few months to connect with them as they begin to regather in the building for worship

Sutures and Staples Removed

I got my sutures and staples removed on Monday, and the steristrips didn’t last but a day on my hand. Everything is looking good, though my surgical sites are still tender to the touch. I am glad that my trigger finger is working again and my hand is not falling asleep all the time.

Still “Patiently” Recovering

It’s been a week today since my surgery. I am able to do a little more activity with my right hand and arm with some comfort. I am finding out that it is hard for me to have to put off doing some things because of the discomfort or that it would be better for healing if I put some things off, like cutting the grass, or weeding.
I get the sutures and staples off next Tuesday.

Surgery Went Well

The surgery is over and I am doing well. Most of the pain is gone and I haven’t had to take any pain medication for over 14 hours. I see the doctor on Friday

Surgery Today

I’m headed for the hospital today for surgery on my right arm – ulnar nerve, trigger finger and carpal tunnel. I guess I won’t be typing for a few days with my right hand.

This Sunday’s worship service will be posted sometime later today, I hope.

End of May

As we begin June, we see more activities starting to become available. Raritan Baptist Church is planning on worshipping together maintaining social distancing and safe hygienic practices on June 7. The plan is to make the service available to watch on line or download for those who don’t feel comfortable meeting. So they will be available hopefully the same day of the worship service

Graduation Parade

Due to Covid-19 there are a number of different ways GHS is celebrating the 2020 graduates, of which my grandson is one. Here is a video of part of the parade.
