I really need prayers for my Dad. He has been miserable with a "backache" for several weeks but was one of those unfortunate people who never got listened to, never got anyone to give him the right tests and now he is on his way by ambulance to Las Vegas for an emergency surgery. (They are retired and were in Mesquite for the winter.) An MRI today found a massive abcess/infection on his spinal cord, with the imminent danger being any infection on/near the spinal cord has a direct path to the brain. So, in a weird twist of fate, my Dad and I will both be having back surgery on the same day, just out of the blue. Please, any healing thoughts directed towards my Dad, Bill, would mean the world to us.
