I have permission from Fran to post information regarding Ted's condition.

Teddie is in Memorial Herman Hospital downtown in the burn unit.  He had an accident with the fire place suffering third degree burns on part of his back, a spot on the back of his head, and on his neck.  Second surgery today indicated he has some infection in the wounds. Another surgery on Friday to determine if the infection is gone. Infection needs to be cleared before they can do any skin grafting. He has a very long road to reovery.

Teddie is in good spirits.  Fran is strong.  Both have a strong faith in God and an amazing family to support them.

Please pray for Teddie, Fran, their family and all caregivers.  

Thanks,

Lynn

It's been too long that I looked on the message page. Hearing about Teddie drew me to find out more so I'm checking daily to be updated. Teddie was in first grade and then again in sixth grade with me at Oak Forest. I spent second thru fifth at Coop Elementary where my mother taught kindergarten. Teddie has been in school with me u til we graduated and has always been a good friend. It grieves me terribly to know of the pain he is suffering. Tom and I are praying for him day and night. 
Thanks to everyone for sharing your life experiences which I have enjoyed reading.

Thank you so much Lynn for the update on Teddy. I know we will all keep him, Fran, and their family in our prayers. Teddy has always been such an upbeat and caring person to all of us. He continues to be that way inspite of his situation. God bless you Teddy through your surgeries and healing process!🙏

  Today is Skeeter's birthday.  I can't sing (sound like a frog) but I would if I could.  
Teddie said his new name is Crispy!  I bet he is the favorite patient by far.  This has taken a toll on Fran.  The patient rests but the caregiver doesn't   They have wonderful kids who help her, but I pray for her lots.                    

My grandkids are way grown. Youngest is 23 and just finished her CPA tests.  Now she has letters after her name.  She is going to be president of the world.her life's ambition has been to be smarter than her older brother.  Now she has a Masters Degree and he doesn't    Kids are so different.  He works for Google and has a great job.  Right now he is on paternity leave since his wife had baby #2.  Now I have two great grandchildren.  First one is now two.  I am blessed.  The world has certainly changed.  Paternity leave.  Wow!  When I had my first daughter I was shown the door when I was 7 months pregnant.  "Don't come back because women should stay home with children"   Of course I was the breadwinner while Ron was in med school.  I was working elsewhere when she was five weeks  old.  My mother took care of her.  Now mothers and fathers get three months leave.  Different times.

Good morning.  My sister is visiting from Houston-Janis Brantley Chandler, class of 1963.  She and her daughter drive up to New Braunfels every few months to hang out and shop at the feed store.  I always enjoy her visits.  I can't comfortably get to Houston.  I am having another back surgery March 8.  Prayers appreciated.  We are working on sorting photos from the last fifty years.  
my second great grandson is two months old.  His two year old brother loves him.  I have the Old Testament two year old Elijah and the New Testament two month old Matthew Silas.
