JEAN - MICHAEL AND EDWARD'S CROPS - COURT AND MORE
When we saw the break in Edward's ankle, we called the ambulance. David went with it. My parents stayed with the rest of the children while Michael and I went to the hospital. Hospital kept Edward over night, but sent him home the next day. Edward for, back reasons, can not walk on crutches, so right now he is in a wheel chair except for going into the bedroom, bathroom, etc. - then he can use the walker. In a few weeks they are going to change the cast and put on a walking cast.
Susan felt so bad about the fall. We explained it was an accident, but also explained on being careful on the stairs. She was sure Edward would be mad at her when he got home. Edward forgave her fast and told her to be more careful. We have Edward in our bedroom on the first floor, so he doesn't have to climb the stairs. As he can't go out in the fields, he has taken it upon himself to do some of the cooking and baking in the kitchen. He sure can swing that wheel chair around.
Hope you enjoyed Elmer's post. Marilyn said he is going to do another one about the separation between the Mennonites and Amish. Before Elmer puts the post on, he wants his Bishop and our Bishop to read it and make any changes necessary. Also he doesn't want any problems or hard feelings.
As far as our Foster Children, they have checked: both our records, bank accounts, references, etc. What surprised them was that each of the children have a bank account where the check we receive from Foster Children goes every month. We do not spend that check. All expenses are paid by David and myself. We do not take government checks, but the state says we have to - so we put the money in each child's account. When they get married or twenty-one, which ever happens first, we will give them the money. Our attorney feels that this whole thing may be thrown out of court, but as yet it hasn't, and we have a court date for later this month. I can't go into anymore detail than this, as the attorney asked us not to. We thank you so much for your prayers and thoughts.
I guess I have told your the latest of what is going on at our house.
Be With God,
ELMER IS BACK NEXT MONDAY ON THE FOUNDING OF THE MENNONITE AND AMISH RELIGIONS.
