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.
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
(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
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.

reports that Wiley is now at home under her care, recovering from a

a call from an old friend or partner would really be uplifting now so pick up
