Jim Hudson (9-12-17 rh) – We visited with Jim today by phone and found that he has been moved to La Hacienda Nursing and Rehabilitation Center located at 3730 W. Orem, rm#105. He was moved because his Medicare days had been used.  He said that his wife Randi was told that their cost would be $169 per day, but when she advised them that they had United Health Care as a supplement they would be covered 100%.  Jim stated that his infection was apparently under control and that they are scheduled to replace his hip and repair his femur in mid-October.  He still is enduring severe pain. Please keep Jim in your prayers.  He still loves to hear from old friend. His # is 281-610-1236.


Bobbie Lott:(9-23-17 nf) Bobbie fell some 3 months ago and broke his hip, he was hospitalized and was in a rehab center since that time until he was released earlier this week and is now at home being cared for by wife, Carmen and family. We delivered and set up a hospital bed at his home Friday for his comfort and convenience for caretakers. Bobbie still has aways to go and needs our prayers for recovery.


Doug Bostock:(9-23-17 nf) Doug was recently diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that is characterized by the fluctuating weakness of the voluntary muscle groups such as facial & neck muscles. Doug will begin a series of IV treatments Monday through Friday next week, each treatment will take 4-7 hours to complete. We will update after his 1st treatment. In the meantime, we need to lift up our prayers for Doug as he fights this illness and that the medications will improve his overall health.

(10-1-17 nf) Doug has completed his 5 day IV infusion treatment for his disorder on Friday, 9-29-17 without any significant side effects. Hopefully, remission will follow. Any further treatment would be determined by follow-up visits with his doctors. Continue to pray for Doug's full remission and recovery.


Jim Hudson:(10-1-17 nf) We visited with Jim this evening by phone. He will have an appointment with Infectious Disease doctors in a week who will determine if his wounds are clear of any infection. An all clear is needed for him to have surgery on Oct. 18th to replace and repair hip and broken femur. He continues to be in major pain and needs our continued daily prayers.


J. Wiley Douglass:(10-1-17 nf) We visited with wife Jean by phone and she reports that Wiley is now at home under her care, recovering from a stroke, with visits by nurses and therapists each week. He is taking calls. Wiley has been isolated for months without a phone available and getting a call from an old friend or partner would really be uplifting now so pick up your phone and give him a brief call at 281-782-3009.


Phyllis Hensen:(10-6-17 nz/nf) We have received a urgent request from Sue Shelburne, surviving spouse of Ike Shelburne, whose daughter, Phyllis, was diagnosed with MDS Luekemia and admitted to  M.D. Anderson hospital on Sept. 8th and is being treated with experimental drugs. She is in dire need of blood platelets. If you are an eligible platelet donor, your urged to contact the Blood Center or MD Anderson hospital for instructions. Please call me at 713-857-2924 if more info is needed.


Isaiah 41:10  Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am with you; I will strengthen you and help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
