Retiree Roundup

Sue Gaines:
(8-8-17 nf)M.D. Beale reports that Sue Gaines was admitted to Kingwood hospital last night with severe stomach pains. She is currently being treated and will be under observation to determine if surgery will be necessary. Lift up your prayers for Sue and her physicians. Sue Gaines:(8-16-17nf) We visited with Sue by phone today. She was released from the hospital last Friday and was back to work as a volunteer at Houston Hospice. She was treated with antibiotics while hospitalized which worked this time. This is reoccurring stomach issue with Sue and the next one could require surgery. We are thankful that she is home and doing well, keep her in your daily prayers.

 Donna Blount:(8-8-17 nf) Donna underwent knee surgery last Saturday and called Sunday to report that she was at home recovering and hoping for a successful outcome. She was still experiencing some effects of the anesthesia. She will be using a knee walker for the next month as she heals. Remember Donna in your daily prayers.

 Joe Chebret:(8-8-17 nf) We visited with Joe by phone this morning and he reports that he is steadily improving with therapy twice a week. He is mobile now and uses a walker to get around the facility. Joe's mother remains in hospice and always on his mind. NOTE: Joe’s wife of 65 years, Mary, passed away August 25, 2017. She was also the mother of retired Officer Melvin Joe Chebret Jr. Please Joe and his family in your prayers and give him a call at 713-858-0093.

Jim Hudson: (8-9-17 nf) Tony Kivela called Jim today and found that Jim had a 5 hour surgery yesterday at Methodist hospital in order to access the compound fracture on his broken femur, which recently showed was not healing together at all. The surgeon found extensive infection and a decision was made to remove the hardware previously inserted (replacement hip and femur attachment). Surgeon also placed an antibiotic "bomb" in an attempt to fight the infection. A future assessment will be made to gauge the fight against the infection then he will have another hip replacement as well as new hardware to re-attach the femur bones.

(8-16-17 nf) Visited by phone with Jim's wife Randi, and she reported that Jim came through another surgery yesterday fine and doctors were pleased with outcome. Jim was resting when I called and they were giving him a unit of blood. Doctors want to monitor him for a couple of days and if all goes well, he will go back to Cornerstone on Hermann Dr. Friday where they want to start some therapy on his right leg. (9-3-17rh) Anthony Kivela  spoke with Jim Hudson yesterday and he related he is still at Cornerstone Hospital.  Sept 3 marked FOUR MONTHS of hospitalization.  Yesterday, he was taken by a transport ambulance to Methodist Hospital to visit with a bone specialist. As a result, he is tentatively scheduled for another surgery on his hip and femur OCTOBER 18, pending the infection being under control. He is in considerable pain, and receiving morphine.  He still welcomes phone calls, (281) 610-1236, and visitors.  He is still in a high level of pain and we need to continue our prayers for pain relief and recovery. Previous phone # was wrong, correct # is 281-610-1236. Call him Thur-Friday. 

 Wiley Douglass:(8-16-17 nf) On 8-14 M.D. Beale reported that Wiley was moved to North Houston Transitional Care, Rm 149, 9814 Grant Rd and Hwy 249, area where he will receive more intensive therapy for 3-4 weeks so that he might become strong enough to function at home. Today Wiley had minor surgery to remove a cyst and will return to the rehab center Friday. Keep Jean and Wiley in your prayers.Go visit him!! 

Bonny Montero:(9-6-17 db) Bostock visited with the Montero family at St Lukes this morning where she is in ICU. All are tired and worn out from hours & days at hospital. Bonny has been through a lot the last few days including a code Blue call. Bonny is hooked up to all types of life saving equipment including the respirator which they will try to wean her off of Thursday AM. THIS IS A SPECIAL REQUEST...That all of us old heads remember Bonny and Jim and that they devoted most of their lives to HPD and she was a trend setter for women police officers at HPD and a friend to any officer looking for help wherever she worked. She and Jim were both outstanding officers and friends to all officers and their whole family turned out to be service oriented between HPD, HFD and military and/or marrying other PD folks. IT IS MY WISH THAT ALL OF OUR

MEMBERS WOULD PAUSE FOR A FEW MOMENTS AND SEND UP SOME PRAYERS FOR  BONNY AND JIM AND FAMILY AS THEY REALLY COULD USE YOUR PRAYERS RIGHT NOW!!!   Doug Bostock(NOTE: BONNY PASSED AWAY 9-8-17)
