|Martha sent this prayer request. Here's the latest on Carl: he had n MRI done at 8 this morning. The doctor just came in to consult with him. He said that the #8 disc in his upper back is BROKEN. Not slipped, not fractured, or even subluxated. He said it was unusual that that particular disc was broken especially since he has done nothing to cause such a break all on its own. The broken bone is not pressed anywhere against the spinal cord. PTL! So they're going to keep digging to find out why. More tests. His kidney function has not improved. They're going to wait on the kidney doctor to decide on dialysis. His sugar levels are normal. He is not diabetic. Keep praying!
