Prayer for Dr. Cook
Dr. Cook called us today to let us know that he is feeling much better. He is still experiencing the side effects from the treatment and his medications, so please continue to pray for a rash that has broken out, his feet that are very swollen, and the lesions that are still in his mouth.
He shared some wonderful news that his platelet count is now back to normal. You will recall that he was first hospitalized because his count was at 22,000 and later it dropped as low as 8,000. It is now up to 139,000! Praise the Lord! Thank you so much for your diligent prayers for this result.
Also, his good white blood cell count is rising, but it will still need to rise some more. Dr. Cook asked if you would mind praying for that and also for the side effects that he is going through. In addition, they will be running several tests this week to determine the next steps for treatment, so please pray that the results will come back very positive.
Dr. Cook remains in good spirits, and he wanted to let you know how grateful he and Sheila are for all of the prayers and good wishes they have received.
“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
