Recieved from Bonnie Aymond Ducote  : Mike Ducote:

Saw colon specialist, Dr. W. Reid Grimes, in Shreveport today.  He ordered another rectal scope for this Tuesday, as he wants to 'see for himself' where exactly the cancerous polyp is located.  This is the 3rd rectal scope Mike has undergone by 3 different doctors. 

 Good news is cancer has not spread into the bloodstream, so surgery is not urgent at this time.  Stage will not be determined until polyp is removed and evaluated at lab.

 Thank you for your continued prayers.

Paul & Elizabeth Reed will be leaving for Houston on Thursday, August 26 to be admitted for surgery the following day to remove a cyst on Paul's spine.  They will return home on Saturday.  Please remember them in your prayers.

Thank you very much and God bless each of you.

Just want to let you know I am home from the hospital and doing well. I will have a final surgery in six weeks to three months then I can heal and get back to normal by spring. At least that is what I am hoping for. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes. AW "Tex" Knaps, Jr.

Update:  September 4, 2009

As you all know, Tex had his surgery Monday, the doctor said he never seen anything like it, it was very bad. He is in much pain and cannot eat anything because of nausea problems.
The surgery lasted 3 1/2 hours and the recovery for about 2 hours, he will be in the hospital 5 or more days. I just pray the Lord that this surgery will be a success that he will not have anymore problems. He asked me to write to you to say Hi and let the people in Bunkie know that he is OK. and for them to keep praying for him.
I'll let you know more news later on, Please pray for me too to cope with everything. You have a nice bless day.  Daniele...

Johnny Tubre: 

Hey everyone!  I have an update on my dad.  Sadly this is not a great
update.  I am currently in Houston with my family.  My father has been
diagnosed with Lung Cancer and it is bad.  It has spread to his brain
already.  We were told to prepare for 10 months to 2 years.  We will
work hard to help him get the 2 years.  Please keep my family in all of
your prayers as we go forward in this very difficult time.  Thank you
all for the love and support you have all shown us to this date.  Love,


Dear Friends,

Please take a moment to say a prayer for the brother in law of my best friend from Cottonport, Beth.  "TUK", as we all know and love him is only 44 years old and is very very sick.  He and his wife, Suzette have one beautiful daughter who is only 16 years old. 

We all know how powerful prayers are. Please add this special family to your prayer intentions.
Thank you so much.

Chris and Family

    Just wanted to let you know that we are going through a very hard time right
now. Suzette's husband, Tuk, has had 2 heart attacks with 100% blockage and
damage to 2 coronary arteries along with damage to his heart. It is pretty
severe. He is on a balloon pump right now at the heart hospital in Lafayette
anticipating a possible CABG this week. However, his heart is so weak, they are
trying to strengthen it with medication and time. He had a heart cath done last
night with 2 stint placements. I am getting ready to go now. I worked last
night. Hopefully I can get some answers over there. This has been going on for
2 weeks. He has no insurance due to a preexisting condition of Hodgkins. So, we
have been in the charity system with feet dragging till last night when his
condition worsened and we had to go to the private hospital. When they tried to
transfer him from HPL  initially, he was denied admission to both RRMC and
Cabrini due to inability to pay dispite accepting cardiologists at both
facilities. It has been a nightmare. Please say some prayers for him and his
family. As you know, he has one daughter, Tiffany, who is the same age as your
last one, Erin. This is what is killing me. She has no idea how serious things
are and we will try to shelter her until we have to tell her. Please share this
with whoever you think can help us with prayers, because in the end we all know
who is in control.  It's just hard to let go of a 44 year old that we love
dearly.                                                              Beth

Ruth had successful 3-way by-pass surgery today at Cabrini Hospital in Alexandria.  Her surgeon indicated that all went well and he did everything which required his attention. 
Please know your prayers helped and are appreciated.
Happy Easter to you and your loved ones.
Remember, he is the reason for the season. 
Peace, Ed Dugas  

03/13/08:  Today I am asking for prayers for Ruth Albritton. 

Last night she had problems and they had to call an ambulance to come and get her and they took her to Bunkie General.  Today they moved her to Christus St. Francis Cabrini Hospital in Alexandria.  She is in ICU now and the doctors say she had a small heart attack and has fluid around her heart or lungs, forgot which one or maybe both. 

She had been feeling bad these past few weeks and been back and forth to the doctor but all the tests were coming back good and she was improving; but last night it wasn't so good.

I ask for your prayers for her speedy recovery and for her family.
Love and Prayers, Jan

03/14/08:  Family Members,
Ruth had a return visit from pneumonia.  Slight as it may be, her heart surgery was postponed at least until next week.
Jeannie told me she ate a little tonight - first solid food since Tuesday.  I plan to visit with her tomorrow.  Your prayers are appreciated.
Peace, Ed
