as many of you already know, DENNIS SPONHOLTZ (1966) suffered a stroke
last month. The
Sponholtzes’ e-mail address is below.
If you would like Dennis’s mailing address, please write to Gale
Senseman Privette at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is an update on Dennis from his wife, Marcie:
have received several cards and phone calls from Dennis’s classmates
which I very much appreciate.
had a massive stroke on August 28. He is currently at National
Rehabilitation Hospital in Washington, D.C. and is scheduled to return
home on October 8. At present he cannot move the right side of his body.
part of his brain that was affected also controls speech and language so
his ability to communicate is very limited at this time. He will require
lots of physical and speech therapy and his rehab team is optimistic that
with time he will be able to be somewhat independent again. I thank all of
you for your thoughts and prayers and encourage you to stay in touch. The
cards that you have sent are hanging on the wall next to his bed and I
have read every word of encouragement they contain to him. He understands
spoken language and so I know that he appreciates hearing from all of
you.” Sponholtz E-mail: email@example.com
My mom, who resides in Rockville and who many of you know, is home now
from Montgomery General Hospital after being there for 13 days (in ICU for
the first 7 of those days for monitoring of her heart and a ton of tests).
Thankfully her heart is fine (she had a heart attack 8 years ago),
but she was treated for other relatively minor ailments, including the
removal of her gall bladder while she was there.
She is doing well. Thank you to those who knew about this and e-mailed and
called us to express your concern. With
the doctors’ (4 or 5 of them involved) “okays,” she’ll hopefully
be able to proceed with her previously-scheduled plans and will be
visiting here in Las Vegas next week with other relatives and about 250 of
their friends for a reunion (of sorts).
I have not seen her in over 1.5 years.
for the details about donating to this 6-year-old project to keep it
alive. Thank you for your
continued support of the Midnight Sun Online!
