He underwent surgery at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn where the affected cancer tissue was removed from his liver. Cody is doing well and may be released from the Clinic Mon or Tues. Please pray for Cody.

Doug Bostock: (7-1-19 nf) Doug has been having severe problems with circulation in his leg and surgery was required to repair or bypass his veins. Doug called this afternoon from his hospital room at Houston Northwest hospital and reported that the therapist had just left after helping him get out of bed to stand a few seconds. He stated that the pain was very intense and he had to get back in bed and was having some really bad pain as we talked. After being released from the hospital he was moved to Encompass Health Rehab, 20180 Chasewood Park Dr., across from St. Lukes hospital at the Vintage. While there he received therapy, but experienced intense pain. On 7-10 Doug had to be readmitted to the hospital at Willowbrook Methodist due to an infection at the surgery site. Surgeons performed a procedure to hopefully eliminate the infection. UPDATE (7-14) Doug was released from the hospital again and was moved back to Encompass Rehab.   Doug welcomes calls from old friends.  His number is 281-221-7466.  Please pray for healing and a full speedy recovery.

Please keep Nelson and his family in your prayers.

Harry & Virginia Hall: (7-31-19 nz)  HPROA member Leonard Ignas, aka Iggy, has over the years become friends with Harry as they lived nearby.  Recently Iggy, who had not had any recent contact with Harry and Virginia, was able to get a response at their door.  Iggy learned that Harry and Virginia still resided in their home in the Meyerland area with 24-7 caregivers.  They have two daughters and one granddaughter, who is able to check by each day and is active in their health care and welfare. Harry is 95 and Virginia is 93, with both suffering from dementia and age-related issues.  Harry came out of academy class #1 in 1948.  He was a homicide detective for a number of years and retired in 1968, going to work immediately for Dr. Joe at the Medical Examiner's office.  He was always quick on the wit and just a great guy to work.  He served in the military reserve; I believe Navy.  He retired not only from the city, but also the county and the military. He was also HPROA Treasurer from 1998 to 2001 and remains a member today. Thanks to Iggy for this update and may the good lord continue to be with Virginia and Harry.
