« on: May 14, 2012, 10:32:11 PM »
My cousin's wife was in a motorbike accident, she has little or no feeling below her chest.
They are doing surgery in the next 24 hrs to stabilize her spine.
They have 2 girls in their early teens.

Please pray for Sandra and the family.

How sad.

Lord have mercy, and grant Sandra a complete recovery from her injuries, and strength for her family to help her in her recovery.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord have mercy! Most Holy Theotokos intercede for Sandra and her family!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

This will be last update , feel free to pm me if you'd like to hear more.

Sandra's surgery to stabilize her spine went well. She has rods in place, her neck is healing well, 3 vertebrae were broken in her back and will need further surgery.  She has regained very minimal sensation in her feet which seems a great sign. 

Thank you all for your prayers and continue to pray over the coming days, weeks, months of her recovery.
