Homecoming Service Planned At Tillatoba Baptist Church Sunday

By Patsy Deck

Homecoming at Tillatoba Baptist Church is Sunday, Sept. 27, at 10 a.m. Brother Ted Darby will bring our message. Due to remodeling in our sanctuary, worship will be in the fellowship hall.  No meal will be provided and the church family request to please wear a mask.
Congratulations to Presley McMillian, who won first place in the state for her 4H record book on horses!
Martha Box says she is busy at home and picking up the grandchildren from school every day. Martha says they groove to good music all the way home.
Her daughter, Ginger Harrison and her crew have the sniffles and cold symptoms but they are okay.  Her daughter, Candy Lishman, and granddaughter, Addie, took her to lunch Friday and they had a great time. Saturday, she had coffee with her son, Ben Box. They are a sweet family taking care of their momma.
Beth McLendon is moving back to Carroll County and we sure are going to miss her, especially in our Sunday school class and as leader of WMU. Her mother, Judy McClain is in ill health and Beth will be taking care of her.
Jessie Williams visited with Ruth Melton Friday.  I talked to Ruth Melton by phone Monday morning and she sounded so good. Said she was feeling pretty good but she couldn’t run any horse races just yet. She also says she is eating pretty good.
Peggy Bailey has been fighting a bad cold for a while now. She went to the doctor Friday and he gave her some antibiotics. I hope they work for you, Peggy.
Sympathy to the Lee Avery White family of Teasdale. Mr. White passed away Sunday, September 20.
Last Monday was one scary day. David and I made it to Southaven by nine that morning for his appointment at 9:30. After he got his shots in his back and we left the clinic, he usually tells me to pull over so he can drive. Well, this morning he told me to keep driving. First time ever since he has been going there. No problem.
We are back on the road, headed south by a little after ten. I’m thinking to myself about how well everything has gone so far and we should be back in Tillatoba by noon or before. ( Sometimes I have a heavy foot). Little did I know just how heavy it was going to get before the day was over.
All of a sudden, David starts making this gurgling sound and he slumped over and his eyes were all crazy looking. I thought he was having a heart attack. He turned gray and felt all clammy. I pulled over on side of the interstate where some construction workers were working and started blowing my horn. They couldn’t hear me so I stepped out of my car and started waving my arms, hoping some one would stop. I’m sure I looked like a crazy woman.
After a few minutes, that seemed like hours, I got back in the car, checked on David and started pulling back on to the interstate, praying I could make it to a hospital. I saw a trucker had stopped and started walking towards my car. He took one look at David and told me to get him to the nearest hospital.
I was 40 miles or more from Batesville. I finally made it there driving 100 miles an hour, hoping a cop would stop me. No such luck! They came and got him out of the car and into a wheelchair and told me to go to the parking lot and wait in my car and come check on him, as often as I wanted. They kept him four hours. After running every test in the book, they decided his sodium was way too low and along with too much stress from the shots! I am praying that’s all it was.
Happy birthday to Kenneth Rowsey and Rebecca McCullar, who share a birthday on the 22nd, Sue Harris Weir on the 24th, Karol Knowles on the 28th, Sandy Beavers Anderson the 29th and Rina Chaney and Kay Bridges share a birthday on the 30th. I pray you all have a wonderful day celebrating.
David and I visited Donna Garripoli in Grenada Saturday morning while waiting to have prescriptions filled. Our other daughter, Brandy Rounsaville, dropped by while we were visiting. Got to kill two birds with one stone! We also stopped by and visited our precious ‘lil great granddaughter, Haven Rose Dukes for a few minutes.
