Default Your Prayers are Needed

Some of you will remember that Keith's brother, Wendell, was paralyzed from West Nile Disease. This happened nine years ago. He has tried determinedly not to be bound to a wheelchair. Friday, his knees collapsed. He fell in the kitchen, hit his head on the glass front of the stove. He did not lose consciousness, did not have a concussion. But in an MRI, the drs. found blood pooling in his upper spine (nape?) and had surgery. Wendell is 85.

Keith will call his wife tomorrow. We might work in a quick trip to Phoenix before Keith's knee surgery depending on that conversation.

CruiseMates' prayers have always counted big time. I hope your prayers will do so now.

Judy

Thank you for your good thoughts.

When Wendell fell, he broke some vertebra in his upper neck. Surgeons had to put in some metal "pieces." I really didn't understand what they did.

He is in an ICU. Later he will go to a physical therapy hospital in the Phoenix area. Please pray that he will be active again. Nobody wants to be bedridden.

Keith still hasn't decided whether we will go to Phoenix before or after his own surgery.

We received an e-mail from Wendell's son this morning. Wendell had a good day on Monday. The nurses got him sitting up. To do that without great pain was a vast improvement over Friday. It doesn't look like Keith will need to go to Phoenix before his own surgery.
