    Normally, I would never ask for prayers for mybelf, but I have reached the end of my rope. I have been told by a neurosurgeon that I have severe stenosis of the cervical spine. (Narrowingof the spinal cannal). Severe enough that if there were any minor trauma to my neck, there is no place for any swelling to go & I will end up paralized. The only fix for this is surgical intervention, Well, that is all well & good, except for one complication. I also have a MRSA (Methycillin Resistant Staph Aurealis Infection) from a prior surgery on my right shoulder. From this previous surgery there was left a large dissolving stitch as a retaining stitch to keep a few things in place while I healed. Only the stitch didn't heal. I got this dreadful MRSA infection from the first surgery & everything that could be done to rid me of was done, & we thought it was gone. Never in wildest dreams did I think that it had colonized around the undisolved stitch causing s fidtuls, then finally an abscess. We thought the problem had been tsken care of last fall when I had a surgeon cut and drain the abcess. Only we didn't know about what was below it. The infection has reached to my shoulder blade and we rally wont know the extent of the damage until I get a competant Orthopedic surgeon. Note the word competant. I have already seen one who has a surgical plan that won't work. It will just cause more problems in the long run.
    So, now that you know the story, I am asking you to pray for the healing of not only my shoulder, but also my neck. I know there are some pretty powerful Christian Prayer Warriors within this group. And for those of you who are Catholic, Please pick your favorite Marian Devotion and ask her intercession for this. If you have your own way of praying, GO FOR IT! I know with enough prayer, these things can be healed! And please don't give up! When someone asks for you to pray for them, they are really asking you to remember them in your prayers until things "get right"
    Thank you all! May God Bless each & every ony of you!
