Please pray for J.D.
Self | 3/02/04 | WVNan

Posted on 03/02/2004 4:33:31 PM PST by WVNan

Our great-grandson, J.D. will be undergoing surgery tomorrow to install a shunt in his brain to drain the cysts that occupy the right half of his brain. J.D. was born with nothing but a mass of cysts instead of healthy brain matter. Last month an MRI showed that the left side of his brain has regenerated. They believe that draining the cysts on the right side may allow the right side to regenerate. J.D. is a miracle baby already. He wasn't supposed to live. I am asking for prayers for J.D. as he goes into surgery tomorrow and prayers that his brain regenerates.

You and yours will be in my thoughts and prayers.

All babies are miracles, and it seems your great-grandson got an extra helping from the Good Lord.   : )

You have my prayers. I know brain cells can regenerate...even though they aren't supposed to (according to medical science)....as my son's did.

May your grandson be sheltered and protected by God's healing touch.

Amen

Prayers for you - the brain is a magical, mystical machine that can exhibit amazing recuperative abilities - my sister was in a coma after an automobile accident for four months - that was thirty years ago and today she is out and about, holding down a professional position, and enjoying a full life with her two daughters - anything can happen for the better.....

Maybre it was me --- I posted a prayer and a poem, and then after I hit send, I saw nothing but a blank space.

I don't know what happened.

Maybe the moderator would let me know. Anyway, my prayer is not here but it is sent anyway and with blessings for all your family.

Oh dear, I'm so sorry that your prayer was taken off. I asked the admin if they could remove the blank space, not the poem. I read it anyway and it was beautiful. Thank you.
