"I am having an urgent procedure at 8 a.m. on Thursday, March 16, for a spinal tap/lumbar puncture. After a "migraine" last October, hemorrhaging behind my right optic nerve was identified. It was reconfirmed in January that the bleeding has not stopped...and again last Thursday. My vision (and worse) is at risk due to the fact my eye has been hemorrhaging around the optic nerve for at least 5 months. The three eye professionals who are involved with my situation are increasingly concerned because of the fact a lot of my reported symptoms the past few years could have been related, but other medical professionals, like many others in my life, have disregarded the seriousness of what I've been reporting. Much of this started almost 4 years ago after a serious auto collision with a head injury and then an additional concussion last summer.
My claim for disability is actively being reviewed and I have another doctor appointment scheduled through the government agency on Monday, March 27, at 8.a.m. My anxiety about all of this is overwhelming. My young son and I spent almost the entire month of February sick with a respiratory virus, so I am only starting to get back on my feet after being so ill.
I am hopeful people will pray that the spinal tap will reveal what it needs to without causing any more injury to my body, mind, and spirit than I've been trying to overcome the past 4 years. I am dealing with a lot of strong emotions because of feeling dismissed by others. I am also hoping the people will pray for the disability claim to be approved. FIRST TIME. I have the head injuries and post-concussion syndrome to manage, visual disturbances, chronic back pain after the accident, and also a genetic primary immunodeficiency disorder that makes me more susceptible to infection. Now, with my sight being at risk, I am losing confidence, patience, and hope that this will ever end well. I've nearly used up everything I worked for the past 22 years. I am trying to believe Romans 8:28 that there will be good in this somehow. I am grateful for those that have truly walked alongside me.
I appreciate your time and prayers.”

Hi, please pray for me. My name is Nicole. I am to have a total hysterectomy on March 15 due to severe endometriosis and a large ovarian mass. Please pray that I survive this surgery, (I have skin infections) that there will be no serious complications and that they find nothing else wrong.. like cancer. I need for God to be with me, and heal me through this. I am really scared. To all who pray, thank you.

Our mother, Betty Kohn, went to Jesus yesterday, Tuesday, 2/21. She was the elderly lady that sat with her 2 daughters (Alicia & Sharon) in the second pew every 9 am Sunday service .She had been in hospice care in our home, and died painlessly and quickly. It has been very difficult for the family. Thank you for your prayers. She was so dear and sweet.
