Page 10 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Wednesday, March 23, 1988 Indiana Family Hopes For 1-Year-Old's Survival, Future Already had 3 operations; family's finances devastated Afternoon Drive Soaking up fhe sun and enjoying the early spring weather, Katy ingle, 3, gets a ride from her friend, Brentt Vansickle, 3, Tuesday afternoon in Cindy Mills/Pharos-Tribune his battery-powered car. Katy is the daughter of Toni and Jim Ingle, 78-16th St. and Brentt is the son of Miriam and Kent Vansickle, 83-16th St. WEST BADEN SPRINGS, Ind. (AP) — Rhonda Walls has learned to savor every bit of progress made by her son, Eddie, a 1-year-old who has endured three major operations since birth and will likely have three more this year. "Everything he does is a major achievement," Mrs. Walls said. "When he was finally able to sit up at seven months, it was the proudest day of my life. He's beginning to walk now with help." For Eddie, who turned 1 on Tuesday, life so far has been a series of trips to Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville, Ky. He weighed just over 3 pounds at birth and doctors discovered he had a large hole in the bottom of his heart. He underwent emergency open heart surgery last September. In October doctors implanted a pacemaker. And on Feb. 12 he went into cardiac arrest and had to have another pacemaker implanted. Doctors said the tissues around his heart had hardened, so the impulse from the device, used to stimulate the organ electrically, could not get through, Mrs. Walls said. Because the pacemaker must operate on its highest voltage setting, batteries in it must be replaced no later than this December. Doctors must also surgically reconstruct his entire urinary tract this year, which will require two other operations. The first could take place in July if the boy's health remains good. His weight is now about 13.5 pounds. The family has no health insurance for the boy, Mrs. Walls said, and medical bills totalling about $600,000 are being paid largely through Medicaid. Local residents have pitched in to help the family. These Teachers Lived It Vietnam vets teach class AURORA, Ind.(AP) -The Vietnam War came to life at South Dearborn High School when veterans joined students in the classroom. The veterans spent Tuesday reliving for the benefit of the students their experiences during the war — how they fought, why they went, what they learned, who they left behind. An ex-Marine returned mentally to the mine that exploded under his jeep. A now-disabled Army Ranger remembered dodging Viet Cong cross-fire and the spray of his country's Agent Orange. A Cincinnati mother recalled how her Marine son became missing in action after he was last seen on a beach in Vietnam. A graduate of the high school class of 1968 told how he went to Vietnam as a volunteer soldier and did his job. Don's Guns Raided By Indy Police INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Five guns along with business records were confiscated by police from a northside weapons shop after a burglary suspect told authorities he sold four stolen weapons to the store. The store, Don's Guns, is owned by Don Davis, the smiling and chuckling star of his own commercials with their trademark line, "I don't want to make money, folks. I just love to sell guns." After the raid Tuesday, Davis accused authorities of Gestapo tactics. "It was like Germany in the 1940s," said Davis, who was vacationing in North Carolina. "I called the store, and someone answered saying he was the police. I asked to talk to my workers and was told, 'They are in the corner being good boys, and we're hauling your stuff out the side door.'" Police said the raid wouldn't have been necessary if store employees had cooperated with authorities. The employees would not allow investigators to examine store records. 'Airplane' Passengers Get Money INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two women who were victims of a pyramid scheme will receive $500 from a Lafayette man, Attorney General Linley E. Pearson said. Ramon Eugene Bridwell signed an agreement with the attorney general's consumer protection division to pay $500 to Janda Hansen and Pamela Cordes, both of Lafayette, Pearson said on Tuesday. Bridwell also agreed to pay $50 to cover the cost of the consumer protection division's investigation of his case, Pearson said. Pearson said Bridwell recruited the two women as paying passengers in the so-called "airplane" pyramid scheme. Eventually, the original promoter bails out and keeps the investors' money, Pearson said. ••MWr~~* I a .
