COMFORT DOG UPDATE

Rhoda would like to once again thank our congregation for bringing her to us. She is happy, healthy and busy bringing the mercy, compasion, presence and proclaimation of our Savior to many.  

 

We are excited to announce the addition of our music director, Cindy Simon, to our handler team. Cindy completed her training sessions with Rhoda and has begun doing visits in Port Washington and Cedarburg.

 

Please check out the bulletin board in the West classroom area for pictures, events and places that Rhoda has visited. Watch for our monthly report Paws for Comfort  as we share special contacts as we do our ministry. 

 

January 11, 2019

Every Friday afternoon I get to visit the babies at Community Memorial Hospital. This week the OB nurses greeted me with "We have a surprise for you, Rhoda!" Then my handlers and I went in to meet two happy parents of twin girls!! The parents felt so blessed to have two healthy babies – and I was happy to join in praising God for His blessings and see my first set of twins.


I thought it might be interesting to let you know what I do in a typical week. Here is my schedule for the week of January 13th:


It begins with a Sunday afternoon at Cedar Creek. During the rest of the week I will spend two mornings and two afternoons at Community Memorial Hospital – visiting the 3rd, 4th, 5th floors, Stroke Outpatient, Rehab, Counseling, and - if there is time, visiting the ER. Also scheduled are visits to Heritage Health in Port Washington, St. Mary's in Ozaukee County, the Arboretum and Silverado, one home visit to a POP member and finish up with next Saturday at St. Joes in West Bend.

This is a special week because we also have two special requests – both early in the mornings! One is to comfort the students at Brookfield East High School before exams and another to Brookfield Lutheran School in Delavan.

Are you tired yet? Feel free to hint to my Caregivers about a tasty bone!

 

 

Congregational members of our team are Nancy Brandon, Pastor Timmermann, Stareen Troeger, Seth Tomson, Cindy Simon and Ray and Peggy Pitroski. Please contact any of us if Rhoda could be of help.
