Display problems in Status strip

I want the status strip to change when certain commands are being executed in the button click event. I only see the "Status: Change Complete..." notice and not the other ones before that.

any ideas why?
Private Sub btnSet_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnSet.Click
        Try
            Me.Enabled = True
            ValidateInformation()
            Me.CommandReceived.Text = "Status: Validating Changes....."
            Send_Struct()
            Me.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500)
            serialCOMDiscover.Write(Door_Message1)
            Me.CommandReceived.Text = "Status: Sending Changes 1 of 5....."
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500)
            serialCOMDiscover.Write(Door_Message2)
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500)
            Me.CommandReceived.Text = "Status: Sending Changes 2 of 5....."
            serialCOMDiscover.Write(Door_Message3)
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500)
            Me.CommandReceived.Text = "Status: Sending Changes 3 of 5....."
            serialCOMDiscover.Write(Door_Message4)
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500)
            Me.CommandReceived.Text = "Status: Sending Changes 4 of 5....."
            serialCOMDiscover.Write(Door_Message5)
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500)
            Me.CommandReceived.Text = "Status: Sending Changes 5 of 5....."
            Me.Cursor = Cursors.Arrow
            Me.CommandReceived.Text = "Status: Changes Complete....."
            Me.Enabled = True
        Catch ex As Exception
            Me.CommandReceived.Text = "Parameters could not be sent. Please check Device"
        End Try
    End Sub

Try Application.DoEvents instead of Sleep. This completes the writing of the Text to the control before going to the following line. Sleep simply stops everything.
