Jim Ruppel

AMVETS Auxiliary Chaplain Jackie Rohde Reported:

After being in the hospital since Feb 11th, other than a short stint of less than 6 hrs in a rehab center that resulted in Jim falling, all his tubes coming out and a trip back to the emergency department at Froedtert, Jim is now at the Union Grove Veterans home. It has been a long recover, he still has a long way to go, but he is happy to be standing (with support) on his good leg. Jim has a no weight restriction on his right leg.

Marvell expresses her thanks for all your prayers and support. Please continue to pray for PDC Jim Ruppel.
