Retired Captain Jim Rowell Needs Your Prayers


Hello everyone,

This is Louise, Jim's wife.

I am writing everyone I can think of to let you know about Jim. The thing that we feared the most, has happened. He suffered a major decline that has put him into the end stages of dementia about a week and a half ago. He was already in end state congestive heart failure. Jim was in the hospital for over a week.

This past Monday, he was placed in the NW Louisiana War Veterans Home in Bossier City, LA, for therapy and care. His dementia has been progressing slowly for over 3 years. While I anticipated this to happen one day, I was not prepared for what all has transpired in less than two weeks time. As of today, he is having great difficulty in talking, walking, just functioning in general. He is unable to sue the telephone or his computer.

Dementia patients can sometimes get better health-wise, but they never return to the mental plateau that they had in previous stage. At least, that's what I've been told. I will keep you all informed on his condition. Jim is the most caring person I've ever known. He loves his family and friends very much. I am praying for a miracle. Please keep him in your prayers as well.
