    My Nephew 35 years old, has never had a drivers liscense, never been on dates, never been able to live independently because of severe epileptic seizures is today having brain surgery to hopefully relieve him of all seizures. The Doctors in Birmingham,Al. have ,this week mapped out the brainwave cycle that bring on his attacks.If the surgery is succesfull, he will have no more seizures. He is such a special young man that has taken at least fifteen different medications a day to survive.I will always have a special place in my heart for Wal-mart stores, because they gave him a job out of high school when others wouldn'.He is a computer whiz, and never complains. I would really appreciate all of your prayers for the success of his surgery and his recovery. I know that with God all things are possible if it be His will. Thank you all so much.

    Margaret, I'm sorry I did not notice your prayer request until today. Please forgive me. I pray that all went well and he is now free of seizures. I understand why you feel that way about Walmart, and That's very good to know. I will make sure others learn how that big box store helped your nephew out when others wouldn't.

    Please keep us informed. You are a dear friend.

    Thank goodness, Margaret. I'm glad he went through two successful operations. Yes, I will keep him in my prayers and thank you for letting us know he's OK. Things are looking up for him and you must feel a lot better, too!

    Margaret, The past week has been very tense for all of you. So glad the surgeries are over and thank you for letting us know how your nephew is today. I sure will keep him in my prayer during this time of healing and pray for God's Will that he start a new beginning off medications and without any need of them going forward. First time I had heard of any type of surgery for this so thank you for sharing your nephew's experience with us.

    Margaret, your nephew has been the recipient of numerous miracles and blessings in not only coming through two major surgeries, but also in having an aunt such as you and a family so devoted! Thank you for sharing this with us, and rest assured that my prayers are with not only him but all of you! I so hope the headaches, that can be difficult to deal with and so rather discouraging, ease up soon. Perhaps they have, by now, and if not, they will soon.

    It seems so utterly amazing to me that such a surgery can be done! Thank God and God bless the surgeons and all who participated into the research and trials that made this possible. I say this having a family member who long suffered from severe Cerebral Palsy and who, in spite of the strongest medications available would experience numerous and the most horrific grand mal seizures each and every night, night after night, for many years. We all, who took care of her, felt so helpless so much of the time. Hope has been realized and I am most grateful to know that, so thank you again for sharing this with us and know that God is indeed with you, always.

    Big hugs! And please do keep us posted. I'll be popping in and out from time to time to see how he's doing. Thank you again, Margaret, so much!

    Well guys, it was with a great deal of sadness that I came here, this early morning only to feel now so blessed in having read about Margaret's nephew that's sort of like that light at the end of a dark tunnel. You'll better understand to learn that even as I write this Sarah may not still be alive. It's been one of those nights spent waiting for the phone to ring. She took a turn for the worse day before yesterday when the GM infiltrated her brain stem causing total blindness. It was all down hill from there. She's comatose now and shutting down. Thank God for Hospice. I can say little more.

    Hold on to life and those you love. Take no moment for granted. Be kind to one another so there will be no regrets. Don't get so caught up in life that you forget the living. It's been only three short months since Sarah was diagnosed, and who could have imagined? She was always so strong, always so healthy, always so vibrant, and now here she is. It happened all too quickly. Pray for her daughters, especially. They are so floundering. And do please, take care of one another.

    I am sorry, Michal. Please know that Sarah is in my thoughts and prayers today. I wish I could do something to help, but all I can do is try to give you comfort in knowing that I care. Please tell Sarah's daughters that you have people in the world who are very concerned.

    Margaret, I am glad to hear that your nephew made it through his surgeries okay. I hope that the headaches he is experiencing get better. He will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    Feathers, I am so sorry to hear about Sarah and all she has had to go through. Sarah and her daughters will be in my thoughts and prayers. You and your family will also be in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for reminding us to hold on to life and those that we love. Sometimes as we go through things we forget and take things for granted, so it is nice to be reminded. Just know that there are lots of us out there thinking and praying for you, your family, Sarah and her family, especially her daughters.

    Feathers, Sometimes we find ourselves at a place where prayer for comfort is what is most needed. I offer that prayer for your Sarah and all the family that our Heavenly Father's Loving care is the comfort for you.
