Doug Bostock (1-11-21 blc) had minor stroke and was admitted to Willowbrook Methodist Hospital Friday, January 9, 2021. Doug and his wife, Mae, have both asked that we keep them in our prayers as they determine the cause of his stroke and what the treatment will be.  Please no phone calls at this time as they are both overwhelmed and that Doug is somewhat confused at times. UPDATE: (1-11-21 blc) The doctor has said no surgery is necessary and Doug will be transferred to Encompass Rehabilitation Center to start therapy on his left leg. Please continue to keep Doug in your prayers and again no phone calls at this time.
