She's probably gonna get upset that I'm doing this, but I have it on very good authority that one of our members is in a difficult spot. Stacia_lee's H has been injured, and won't be able to go to work till the doctors release him to do so. She has had to miss some extra work to take him to Dr. appointments and such, so they are going to be out a little more than just her H's pay! Twiisty and I have decided to open up the MB fund to help her out, so if anyone feels led to contribute, please contact me at jnk89_p@yahoo.com, and we will get you the address to send your contribution to.

Now, for Stacia_lee, I know what you're gonna say to this, but you're just gonna have to suck it up and accept our help! That's what we are all here for, is to help in any way we can!

**edited to add**PS when you email me, please let me know here, so I will check the email more often!

Dear Dear MB friends...

All I ask is that you pray for our little family.
It is true we are facing another trial in our marriage..
This time its Mr. Lee's physical health. A double whammy.

Last week, H was referred to a Vascular Surgeon because of pain in his right breast. He will see that Surgeon next Wednesday... They will be checking to see if it may need to have a biopsy performed.
As his mother had breast cancer... he is scared, as I am.

But, the main thing right now is his knee. He apparently has torn some cartilage and has done quite a bit of damage to his left knee. It has swelled up to 3 times its normal size and the Orthopedic Surgeon says it looks like he may have to have surgery on the knee.
He has already had an MRI and we are now waiting for the results from that.

Monday our Family Dr refused to release H to go back to work... and yesterday the Orthopedic Dr also forbid him to go, awaiting the outcome of the MRI.
Today... Mr Lee BEGGED the Orthopedic Dr to allow him to go to work... with restrictions. Reluctantly the Dr allowed him to return to work... but he cannot do anything that requires him to be getting up and down. So, sitting and answering the phone is about all that can be done.

Mr Lee's boss was very angry that he couldn't come into work the past couple of nights, Bossman had to cover the shift... 3rd shift, graveyard...
The Dr said that if they tried to make H do anything that would require him to move around, then H should come home. And if they didn't like it, the DR's office would send them a letter... and it can get pretty messy, trying to go against a Dr's advice...

My father also has had this type of knee surgery. He went into Surgery Trauma... and they called CODE BLUE. We almost lost my father during that surgery... so I guess I am a little over-scared now that my husband may be looking at this same surgery.

So, dear friends... all I ask is that you pray for my husband. Pray for the Lord to touch him...
I love my husband... I need him ...
I can't see raising my son without the father that wants him so very badly.
Let alone, what would happen to Lil Bit if her daddy were gone?

Thank you, dearest Tigger and Twiisty, for the thought... As you know, I don't feel that it is necessary... There are so many others that could be helped by the MB Fund...
