​This isn't as timely as I would have liked, but it is current.  I just talked with Mildred a little while ago.
Several weeks ago she fell in her driveway, and being oh so careful not to re-injure her shoulder, when she fell the opposite way she ended up breaking her leg in two places and her hip in two places.  So for a while we will know exactly where she is and exactly how to reach her!
Her information is below, and as long as she is not in therapy or otherwise being 'detained', she
can get to her cell phone.   When we just talked she was waiting to be put back to bed because
she cannot lift the leg on her own.  BUT!   She is still trying to figure out a way to get to the lunch
so don't be surprised if she shows up even if she is being carried in by somebody.

I know the Class will reach out to her with cards and calls, and as she 'tells me stuff' I'll send it
on out to all of us. 

Here is the address for Mildred:  Laurel Park At Henry Medical, 1050 Hospital Drive, Stockbridge, GA 30281.
Mildred's cell# 404-644-6050
