I have a large tumor in my upper left lung which has grown past the ribs and into the vetebrae. The partial paralysis was caused when the weakened bone collapsed, and tumor tissue is pressing on the nerves. I have to go through immediate major surgery, which they have to transport me to Danville for.
 
Prognosis is not good. Best we can hope for is my not being a complete paraplegic. We'll worry about the cancer later.

Please pray for me.
Mark (rwprof) passed into eternal life on Jan 7, 2010.  May his memory be eternal!

A speedy recovery!

Grant him healing and a full recovery!

O Most-Pure Mother of God, O Queen of All! Hearken unto our much-afflicted sighing before Thy miraculous Icon, brought to Russia from the land of Athos. Look upon Thy children, suffering from unhealed ailments, who fall down before Thy holy image with faith! As a bird covers its nestlings with its wings, so do Thou now, who art ever present, cover us with Thy greatly healing omophorion. In that place where Hope be.

There where bitter sorrows overcome us, there will Patience and Rest be revealed. Where the torment of despair dwells in the soul, there will shine the ineffable Light of Divinity! Console the fainthearted, strengthen the weak, bestow softening and enlightenment upon embittered hearts. Heal Thine ailing people, O All-merciful Queen! Bless the minds and hands of our physicians, that they might serve as instruments of the All-powerful Physician, Christ our Saviour. We pray before Thine Icon, that Thou mightest truly live with us, O Sovereign Lady! Stretch out Thy hands, filled with healing and cures, O Joy of the sorrowful, Consolation in afflictions, that having speedily received miraculous help, wee may glorify the Life-creating and Undivided Trinity, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, unto the ages of ages. Amen.

Sadly, Mark (a.k.a. rwprof) is no longer with us.  He died back in January of this year.  May his memory be eternal!  (See this post for the original news release.)
