Prayers And Warm Thoughts Request - (UPDATE)

I would like to ask for some prayers and warm thought for my Aunt Mary Ann.

[This is a picture of her braiding Kyla's hair shortly after Bryleigh was born]

For the past 7+ months, she has been having some problems with her back. She has gone to alot of Doctors appointments without no real success.

This past Sunday, she could not get up and was in a great amount of pain. After an hour of not being able to move, my Uncle called EMS. They took her to the local Emergency Room where she was examined and finally admitted to the hospital for further tests.

Yesterday, several rounds of tests were performed, including a CT Scan. It was determined that she (in my Aunt's words) "broke her back", but there is concern that cancer may also be part of the problem. A 45 minute MRI was scheduled, but she is claustrophobic and could not handle it. From what my Uncle says, it has been rescheduled, probably for today, and she will be sedated during the process.

Back Surgery has also been scheduled for tomorrow at noon. Hopefully the broken bone(s) situation will be corrected and the search for Cancer will be negative.

I have been told that she is in good spirits, has good color and is thinking positively, but still has breakthrough pain between her medications.

Please pray for her safe and speedy recovery as well as relief from the pain. She recently retired from her job with plans of relaxing at home, enjoying her grandchildren, and taking care of her mother (my grandma) who just moved in.

I will try to post an update as soon as I get one.

Thanks in advance for all of your time.

The power of prayer is an awesome thing!

(Just wanted to give out a quick update...as of right now, we are still waiting for news. I will post as soon as I hear something. Please continue to pray. When I told my Aunt about all the wonderful comments and prayer around the world for her...she started to cry. Thank you all so much!)

Before I Try This...

I just want to know if anyone else has tried it, much less even heard of it?


During a browse on Another Online Mom's site, I came across this recent post and stopped cold in my tracks. Could this possible work?

Not sure about the rest of you, but I am not the type of mom to have lots of time on my hands to go out and have someone else pamper me. I usually shower when the girls are sleeping and give myself a quick clear polish pedicure so that you cannot see the mess-ups...so if this stuff

works on removing unwanted body hair in very sensitive places without the need for sharp blades and itchy, ingrown hairs...I will be one happy lady!

You are suppose to take some of the powder and mix it with a little water until it forms a thick past. Then you spread it on the treatment area and let it sit for five minutes. Next, you take a spoon and scrape it off...leaving behind super smooth skin with no razor burn.

Should I try it? Or should I wait to hear back from Another Online Mom about her experience or wait and see if some blog lurker comments with her story.

Wonder if it will also work on underarms, legs, etc?

I hear that you can get it pretty cheap in the hair color section of places like Target and Walmart. I have also heard that it smells pretty bad, but doesn't Nair!?!
