I've been having attacks of intense bowel pains about once a week for the past three months.  The attacks are stabbing and debilitating for anywhere between 2 and 10 hours.  They are so bad that I had to go to the hospital recently and receive IV morphine.  

I have a take-home narcotic, but it only takes down the pain a notch when I have an attack.  The doctors don't know what is causing the problem.  A CT scan I had recently showed "normal."  I had small bowel resection surgery a year ago, and large bowel resection the year before, so my entrails aren't the same as everyone else.  

The attacks are disrupting my life since the attacks come from nowhere, and when they hit, I am incapacitated for the rest of the day, and to a lesser degree for the next two days, when I'm still very sore.  I've been to my primary doctor who is sending me to a G.I. specialist.   Please pray that the specialist identify and cure the problem, or that I am miraculously healed beforehand.  Thanks.

Lord have mercy!

I seem to recall that you also had back trouble.  Is that still flaring up also?

I'll pray for both issues.

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.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
