Prayer for Dr. Cook

Thank you for your prayers for Dr. Cook. He returned from the doctor today with the following report.

His white blood cell count has been slowly rising every day over the last ten days, but it is not where it needs to be in order for him to begin his third round of chemotherapy on Monday, December 31, as they had hoped, so Dr. Cook is scheduled to begin chemo later.

Therefore, if his white blood cell count continues to rise and it is at a level that is safe to proceed, Dr. Cook will begin his third round of chemotherapy on Monday, January 7, and will continue to go in for treatments every day until January 11.

Can you please pray specifically for his white blood cell count to rise so that he can begin treatment on January 7? Also, can you please pray for him that he will remain healthy this next week and that the third round of chemo will go smoothly?

Dr. Cook wanted to let everyone know that he is continuing to cling to his life verse—Proverbs 3:5-6—during this time by trusting in the Lord and leaning not on his own understanding.

Thank you again for your prayers.
