I Need Help

I have been disabled since I was 37 years old. I don' t question God at all...I realize this a part of his big plan for my life. Other people that are not Christtians would probably curse and swear. Not me I take it one day at a time and pray for the best and Praise Him that I am still alive. What happened first is I woke up paralyzed. After being rushed to the ER, I was told that I have had a small stroke. I stayed approximately 4 days learning to walk on a walker and getting my speach back in order. The next thing that happened was I woke up one morning and my fingers felt like they were falling off my hands. I had to tape my fingers togeather. That was a pain I had never felt before. I was rushed from Pensacola Florida to a doctor in Birmingham. He did a milogram on me before I left for home. I recieved a phone call before I went to bed that night, only to find out that I was in 1/4 of an inch from being totaly paralyzed. I had to be there the next Tuesday for emergency surgery. This would have been my 27 surgery. Upon arriving at the hospital with my parents I was told that he was going to to  a three level fusion in my neck and possibly a five level fusion.  If the only did the there, I would definitely have to have the others done within the next five to ten years. I have been through 4 shoulder surgeries,3 sinus surgeries.15 hernia surgeries,tonsils and wisdom teeth. Well, that had to fuse 3 levels and I got back to my room at 7 pm and was sent home at 7 am the next morning. Not a bad surgery. Since, I have woken up four more times totally paralyzed. I have to go to pain management due to spinal and cervical stenosis, extreme neuropathy in my legs and chronic pain in my whole body. I take a variety of pain medication(high power pain meds) . I recently went through gastric bypass, at 5'11 I weighed 268. My doctor told me that I had two years to live if I did not loos weight. Well, thanks to the will powers and prayers and help from my best friend Jesus Christ I have lost 100lbs. I still can not feel my legs half the time and have no feeling in my face. I am loosing my teeth that I have always taking really good care of...I need your prayers. I am in desperated need of a handicap van.  Also, I am about to loose my home. I have to have a caregiver. I am not allowed to live alone because I never know if I am going to wake up paralyzed of ok. He need s to be paided. If you know any foundations that I can get the van I need please let me know. I will be praying for your needs as well. May the Lord Jesus Christ Bless you in what you need to survive.

God Bless,
