Captain Hook Update

This update came from the CarePages of MD Anderson Hospital.

“Hello to our faithful Prayer Warriors: The Captain’s advisor told him today that he could drop anchor tomorrow. We will be admitted into the hospital for the fourth treatment. We had a blood draw and met with our Dr. for the results and a discussion about the Pet scan that we took before we went home. The Pet scan did not show any active cancer. We Praise our Heavenly Father for answered prayer with humbled hearts. The platelet count was 56 and the Dr. thought that it would be high enough by tomorrow to start the treatment. He also said that we may have one or two more treatments depending on how Don responds to the chemo and how quickly his platelet count comes up. We have put this journey in the loving hands of our Father and we trust that he knows best.

We will be able to update each day we are in the hospital. We want to say THANK YOU for each warrior that lifted us up through out this journey. We ask God to bless each of you ten fold.

God bless until tomorrow, Captain and Mate”

Update on Don (Captain Hook)

This is an update which comes through the CarePages from MD Anderson Hospital. Don and Jo Ann returned to Houston yesterday. Their updates are always fun and uplifting. Don is also known as Captain Hook and Jo Ann is the First Mate.

“AHOY to all of our faithful prayer warriors!!!! We were blessed with sixteen days at home and it was wonderful. We are so blessed with a wonderful family, a praying church family and pastor, and friends that have lifted us up to the Heavenly Father. THANK YOU!!! I thought that the ole Captain would be nicer after the break, but I was wrong. He is still a mess – I will just ask for an extra cup of GRACE each day.

We came to the Clinic as soon as we arrived in Houston. We had blood work done and than waited for the report. The report showed the platelet count was up to 48. THANK GOD!!! The nurse made an appointment for Thursday to have blood work done and scheduled admission into the hospital, if the platelets are high enough.

God bless you all,
