Thank you ALL for sharing this blog and for praying for me and begging for prayer on my behalf. I am beyond humbled and so full of gratitude. There is no way I can physically respond to all the loving FB messages, writing this alone has me in so much pain. We feel loved by all the many prayers. Prayer warriors: Please keep it up. It’s been a hard 3 days filled with physical pain. Much uncertainty. Praise God for modern medicine. I can’t remember what I have shared. In short, I had too much csf fluid, and it began leaking out of my staples, (Dangerous), so they placed a drain. (Didn’t work- valve failed). The drain malfunctioned, and I lost almost ALL my spinal fluid which creates what is called a low pressure headache. Highly painful. In fact, in all of my intimate knowledge of pain, this is the highest form. As of yesterday I was still lacking enough spinal fluid to sit upright and move around. Changing positions is desperately painful. I am maxed out on pain medicine, yet so thankful FOR pain medicine and kind doctors and nurses. I am currently in the ICU awaiting a CT scan as the pain has not subsided, and guess what is leaking again? Ding, ding, ding !!! My wound. Please pray for relief, an that my brain is ok. There is a lot going on and I am not getting a straight answer. I am in much pain and am begging God for deliverance. God has mercifully gotten me this far. Thank you prayer warriors.

    Praying throughout the day! Relief from pain, wisdom from above, & that same tenacious spirit that the Apostle Paul had in the dungeon after being whipped and chained… which I’m sure you are feeling some type of camaraderie. That the Lord would give you an overcoming strength that can only come from Him, to get through the next min, hour and day, as this situation plays out. There are so many praying for you Michelle.
    May our God supply all that you have need of.
