PLEASE...IMEDIATE PRAYER FOR LISSIE'S BROTHER-IN-LAW

This is Witt's blog and will always be but every now and then we post a prayer request. I have first hand knowledge of the power and effect of prayer. Lissie's brother-in-law Michael Donham is in need of prayer. Lissie is a friend of our family that I think of more as a member of my family. Lissie has always poured out her life for my family, consequently all our families have become close. Michael is married to Lissie's sister Dinah and they have 4 boys ranging from junior high to preschool. Today Michael started having seizures and has been in and out of unconscious. Michael's seizures are not stress or chemical (low potassium, etc.) related. They have done a CT scan and it did show density of a vessel which may not mean anything. He is having the lumbar puncture (spinal tap) now to check for infection in the brain. He will also have an angiogram tonight to check for blockage. Tomorrow will be an MRI and EEG. He had a 3rd seizure around 7pm. but the doctors stopped it with medication. Now he is on morphine for the pain caused from the seizures. Sweet Michael has requested his book on Philippians because he wants to go to his Bible study tomorrow. He doesn't realize that won't be possible. Please pray for this family...for Michael, Dinah, Lissie and all the Miller family. Cheryl and my mom are headed to Dallas early tomorrow to be with them. I will post an update as soon as I know anything.
