Maranatha News

Hey, Maranatha friends:

We are hoping to see all or as many as possible of you tonight at the Christmas Dinner and Auction at 6:00 at the Tulsa Country Club. It promises to be a special night, but it will be better if you are there.

I have included within our Joys & Concerns section of the newsletter a brief update on Scott Solomon, in an attempt to respond to so many of you who have called, texted and emailed me to get the latest information. Scott has recovered well from the surgery on his back and is now ready to begin rehabilitation to develop the new skills that he will need to gain maximum independence to resume his life. He has an extraordinarily positive and upbeat attitude, and is ready to tackle this new challenge. Together, the Solomon family has determined that the optimal place for Scott to attack his rehab is the Craig Hospital in Englewood, CO (a suburb of Denver). The Craig Hospital specializes in spinal cord injuries and is one of the top places in the country to work with Scott. He will be transferred there this weekend, and will be working with them for 45-60 days. Dana will follow on Monday for at least 30 days, and Stuart and Michael will go as soon as Michael is out of school for the Christmas holiday.

Dana, Michelle Place and I have determined that the best system for updating the multitudes of people who love the Solomons and are eager to hear how the family is doing is the same system that Michelle utilized when Larkin had a lengthy hospitalization many years ago. That is, Dana will contact Michelle when she has news to report. Michelle will send out an email to everyone who has asked to be on the email list. These updates probably won’t be daily, but they will be more frequent that the weekly Maranatha newsletter in which I will summarize the information (at least for the next month until the new Newsletter Editor takes the position – please!). Thus, if you would like to be on Michelle’s email list for more frequent updates, please contact Michelle at mplace to let her know to add you to the list (or you can let me know that you want to be on the list and I will forward your email to her).

One day at a time, one concern at a time, one prayer at a time. Sometimes, that’s all we’ve got. Let’s hang on to that, and each other.

Remember that you are appreciated, enjoyed and admired by your class members.
