This is a second excerpt of a postcard message that I posted last week. Though it's written in German, it was mailed from Poland to Chicago. I tried to crop the excerpt so that it ends at the end of a sentence, but had to guess. I would be delighted if anyone could translate even a few lines. Thank you.

Als ich im Krankenhaus war, hat sich der liebe Vater vogenommen sein 70 jaehriges Geburtstag zu feiern welches zwei Tage vor Purim zu gesund sein wird. Den Sonnabend vor Purim werde ich das erste Mal in die Betschule ggehen, der liebe Vater wird segnen lassen, Menader sein Geld fuer die hiesien Armen und fuer Eretz Israel.

this is not 'regular' German. Probably written by a Yiddish speaker, mixed with Hebrew words. I'll try a translation, but a program cannot do much here.

.. [longing?] especially for the dear children. At home it is rather gloomy. I don't go outside. When I was hospitalized, father [possibly husband] decided to celebrate his 70th birthday, which comes out two days before Purim - hopefully staying healthy till then. On Shabbat before Purim I will go to Shul for the first time [since hospitalization?], dear father [possibly husband] will make a blessing and give money for the local poor and the land of Israel. ..
