Daily Prayer for Dr. Cook
Please pray that Dr. Cook's platelet count will start to increase. Right now, this is one of our greatest concerns. On Friday, October 12, Dr. Cook's platelet count was 22,000 at 12:00 noon, and it should have been 100,000. By 7:00 p.m. the count was down to 13,000.
On Saturday, Dr. Cook received a platelet transfusion, and he had a chemotherapy treatment on Sunday evening. However, his platelet count has only increased to 15,000. We are praying that the transfusion and the chemo will reverse the low count and that the platelets will start to increase to greater levels.
Dr. Cook is extremely weak, and he is also experiencing nausea from the chemotherapy. Please pray that the doctors will be able to treat these side effects from the treatment and that he can regain strength and an appetite.
Dr. Cook really appreciates your prayers. Just as a miracle occurred here on University Hill in 1988, we pray that God will perform another miracle in Dr. Cook's healing.
