Prayer Request - GK Henry Werner


GK Henry Werner of Our Lady In The Desert Council 15704 hurt his back at work a week or so ago and slipped a disk.  The slipped disk is firing up nerves in his left leg.  As long as he lies down he's OK but if he tries to walk, the nerve hurts so much and if he's not careful he may lose balance and fall because of pain. He hopes that a doctor can fix the problem with traction and steroids otherwise a small incision to relocate disk might have to happen but hopefully that will not be the case.  He is still waiting for an appointment to see a back surgeon.

Please keep Brother Henry in your prayers.

Vivat Jesus!
