Topic tags/keywords: question

I haven’t seen any posts from Schummie or heard from him in quite a while. Does anyone know how he’s doing or heard anything? I realize he suffers from serious complications from injuries incurred while on duty as a police officer, and was wondering how he is.

Sorry, I should have updated this sooner. I did hear from him briefly last week but have heard nothing since. It sounds like he’s having a rough time with the complications of his injury and isn’t having much fun for a guy his age who used to be very physically active. I don’t want to speak for him or embarrass him because I really don’t know him other than some email exchanges, but it sounds to me like he could use prayers if you’re so inclined….I don’t know what else to do for him, or literally what more we can do for him. I know he wants to get out and do some woodworking but he’s not able to be up out of bed for very long without enduring intolerable pain that the doctors don’t seem to be able to help. I suspect he’s bored and feeling isolated as well. Schummie, if you happen to see this, you’re in our prayers and thoughts!

just read this blog , and went to schummie space and noticed that he had commented on a1jims shop
blog yesterday .
don’t know the man myself as im new here , but reading his story made me sad for him .
could we get together and maybe send him some books and magazines to help keep his spirits up ?
i would need some help that way if i was in his place .
i don’t know how to go about this , but maybe collectively we could come up with something nice.
maybe a blog asking for ideas and ww books/mags and a blog to help him in the spirit with prayers

Hi David – You’re urge to help is admirable. Even a note to let him know you were thinking of him might help, then you can ask what he needs. Wwing books and mags might be welcome. I’ve corresponded with him before, so I’d be happy to do that if you prefer. Several months back he was looking to obtain some handtools to keep him busy, and several of us responded by sending items. Unfortunately, I think his pain prevents him from spending much time with them.
