We took our time driving to Cleveland the early part of October. George and I made Dolly a bed to lie down, while we made the trip. We were very concerned about her legs clotting, so we would stop often to let her get some circulation. We made a visit to our dear friend Anna Leah Kratzer in WV. (Anna Leah is the widow of Dr. Garland Powel, she has since remarried). She has been diagnosed with cancer and is refusing treatment. It was a blessed visit and may be the last time we will get to see her this side of eternity. We then visited a couple of churches in WV. All in all it took us four days to make a 1,000 mile trip. We thank the Lord for housing that was supplied by our supporting church in Cleveland. I got Dolly settled in with family nearby and began reporting to some of our churches and preaching a few missions conferences. As you know I have not kept any out of state meetings for a long time, due to Dolly’s health. God was good and in every conference the Faith Promise was increased substantially. Praise the Lord! The middle of November I had to be back in FL for a couple of meetings. The plan was to leave Dolly in Cleveland until I could return for the anniversary celebration, but a few days before I flew out Dolly turned very ill. We could tell it was the blood clots. We ‘doctored’ her up as much as possible and got het to FL to see her doctors. She was hospitalized for 3 days with catheters in both legs infusing blood clot breaking drugs into her veins. We thank the Lord that they once again were able to get the blood flowing. The doctors have warned us that this will probably be the last time this can be done, unless Dolly remains on a regiment of blood thinners. Of course Dolly cannot be on blood thinners very long because of the hemoptysis. Dolly had her 3 month CT scan to see how the tumors were responding to what little treatment she has been on. We give God all the Glory that the 2 smaller tumors have reduced in size slightly and the large one stayed the same. FOLKS THIS IS PROGRESS? Thank you for your prayers.
