Happy 3rd Birthday to GG & Addy

FYI, Dan is back in IL for a while. If you are interested in helping out with his weekly care, give us a call, or send an email to: checkinondan@gmail.com

If you have a few hours a week or every other week, or 1 time a month, we are flexible.

Needed areas of help:
  • Nursing or light medical care
  • AM getting up [starts at 8 or 9]
  • PM getting in bed [starts at 8 or 9]
  • Physical exercise & range of motion exercise
  • Lunch time meal prep & feeding help
  • Visiting or hanging out for a few hours, giving us time to get other things done
  • Insurance paperwork and filing of medical papers, etc
Another financial need -- we would like to get some money to Garrett, Dan's caregiver. Garrett did not get paid the whole year he was with Dan except for the days they were back in IL for breaks. The OH care system is still NOT in place, so he was not able to receive money from OH either. He was only paid about 30%, of what he should have made this past school year. [I know, a true servant] Dan could not have completed this year without his dedicated care.

If you would like to donate to Garrett, mark your check "For Garrett c/o Dan Knudsen", and send to:
Harvest Bible Chapel, 1000 N Randall Rd, Elgin, IL 60123
I don't think this is a tax deductible donation, but Garrett [and Dan] would greatly appreciate your generosity.

Thanks for your continued thoughts and prayers, as always.
