Please Pray for John Boy

Since John's last seizure and diagnoses of epilepsy, he has seen a neurologist and under gone an EEG, several MRIs and X'rays. They have revealed John has a rare brain disorder called Chiari Malformation. In a nut shell~ part of his brain is slid down into the top part of his spinal cord. It is causing some blockage of his spinal cord fluid going to and from his brain. So far he has shown no negative affects but he is expected to have problems at some point. (A herniation of 3 to 5 mm is usual for this condition and John's is 18mm.) Next week he will see a neurosurgeon at The Chiari Institute in New York that specializes in John's condition, for a consultation.

This is a long-term prayer request- not just for the consultation but in the days ahead as John deals with this. We know God is in complete control of this situation and this is not an "accident" that happened without His notice!

This is an article about a five year girl with the same condition as John
