Dr. & Mrs. Bloom

The following email was received from Sandi Quinn:
"On April 22, Peg Bloom's 82nd birthday, she was taken to the Aurora House on 18th St. to be kept in peace & comfort until she passes. She fell in January and has progressively weakened since then.  She was in rehab for a few weeks, then to the Retama NH a few weeks, then able to go home where she seemed to be improving.  But since Mar. 16th she failed quickly.
       Dr. Bloom has lost over 50 lbs. and looks very poor. "

Somebody had a birthday...

 Another birthday and another reason to go out to dinner.  On Wednesday, April 15th, MARY GAINER celebrated her birthday with about 41 Leisure World residents at Tex-Mex for an early afternoon dinner.  (with all these pictures, can you find Waldo?) 



After dinner, most met back at the rec hall for cake and ice cream. 


Many "special" cards were there for Mary to wish her a Happy Birthday.

Lorn Cook

Not long ago we learned that longtime Leisure World winter resident Lorn Cook had been diagnosed with a fast growing brain tumor. Mary Ferguson advised via email today that Lorn is now in a nursing home, having lost much of the sight in his left eye and suffering weakness in his right side and is no longer able to walk. He has advised his doctor and his family that he wants no agressive treatment and they are respecting his wishes.  Lorn is in good spirits and I am sure that cards or notes from his Leisure World friends would be a most welcome way to brighten his day. If you would like to write the address is:                                      Community Memorial Health Center
                                      Lorn Cook, Room #124
                                       8th Ave W, Box 188
                                        Hartley, IA 51346
Mary and Myril are planning on visiting Lorn tomorrow, and will keep us posted.

Leisure World Night Out

No birthday, no holiday, just a night out with friends.  About 36 Leisure World residents met at the Longhorn Steakhouse on Thursday, April 9th for an enjoyable dinner. 


Mel and Darlene say - So Long, until we meet again... AND Joanie and Art say - There is always room for dessert. 
Everyone seem to enjoy the evening...

EASTER AT LEISURE WORLD - consisted around 93 Leisure World residents all gathering at the rec hall for a great meal together.  No bunnies hoping around but a lot of chocolate bunnies on the tables. 

Missing from this table was photographer Dick. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Tony...

Thanks to the park for furnishing the delicious hams for each table, thanks to Pat LaFoe for organizing and thanks to all the wonderful cooks to make the day special.
