Hello Family and friends! It’s been since the beginning of August that I updated you on my brother Pooch (Warren) Wolfe. As most of you know, Pooch was diagnosed with Melanoma Cancer back in April of this year. He had tumors all through his body at the time. Hershey Medical Center began treating him with a combination of drugs called Immunotherapy Treatment. Miraculously, by July the tumors had all disappeared! See The Miracles Continue! Unfortunately, the healing treatment had many adverse side effects of which Pooch has been battling all summer! He has gone from mountain top highs where he was back to almost full strength doing chores, mowing, driving, etc. to deep deep valleys where he was knocked flat on his back with fatigue, dizziness, nausea, colitis and other “GI” related problems.
We recently had our yearly Wolfe Picnic at his home and when we arrived he was experiencing so much pain he had to lay down for a while but within a couple of hours he was able to join in on the fellowship and by the evening was taking part in all of the fun and storytelling that always happens when we get together.
Over the last couple of months he has gotten into the cycle of being at home for a couple of weeks but then having to go back to the hospital to have his body re-generated with fluids and changes of medication. He currently is in the hospital and he and Thelma are hoping that this time around the doctors will figure out some combination of treatment that will eliminate his constant digestive problems.
I was in to visit him yesterday and he was very groggy and didn’t communicate very much. I went back today and after a couple of changes to his medication he was back to being the Pooch we all know, as he was making wise cracks and joking with the nurses and doctors. He was also up and walking down the hall without any assistance. So please pray that he will maintain a steady increase in strength, have a good appetite (with no nausea) and get back to full activity once more. God is Good and Jesus Saves!
O God who hears our prayers to You all flesh will come. (Psalm 65:2)
Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy! I look to you for protection. I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings until the danger passes by. I cry out to God Most High, to God who will fulfill his purpose for me. (Psalm 57:1,2)
