NOTE OF THANKS The families of Scottie & "Cookie" Hicks and Tom & Becky Oldfield want to thank everyone for their prayers, concerns, flow- ers, food, contributions and love during the recent hospitaliza- tion of Jeff Oldfields wife, Susan. Susan gave birth to a healthy, beautiful baby boy and simultaneously had an Amniotic Fluid Embolism (amniotic fluid goes into the blood stream causing the body to shut down) and Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation (uncontrolled bleeding). She was airlifted to the UK Trauma Uni! where she ultimately recovered and was sent to Cardinal Hill for rehabilitation. Special thanks go out to the Sugar Grove Christian Church, Ow- ingsville United Methodist Church, all other community church- es plus our internet family and friends from coast to coast. Due to the fervent prayers from innumerable sources to an Almighty God, a miracle was granted and a mother, wife and daughter was restored to life. Thank God for his Grace to the Clark County Regional Medi- cal Center and the UK Medical Center staff, doctors, nurses, air medics, trauma unit personnel who did not give up but kept up the CPR, blood transfusions and medical miracles so that life w~ given back to Susan. Susan is continuing out-patient therapy and l is home with her family caring for the baby. God is good! Thanks to everyone from the Hicks & Oldfield families. ,( ~ !!~ ~ !!ill ~ ~ ~ ~iiiiiii~i~i~iiiiiii!iiii~ii!i!i!iiiiiiii!!i~i!i~!i!~i~i~i~ i ~ ~:i Laundromat Hours: Open Daily 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Attended by Roy Miller Sr., 606-674-2945 and Roy Miller Jr., 859-398-1210 I
