I have a prayer request for a good friend of mine. Jody is a Viet Nam veteran and is now completely dependent on the V.A. for her health care since her husband lost his job due to medical problems of his own. Unfortunately she has developed a medical condition that is very painful and she desperately needs surgery to fix it, but her case has been stalled in the V.A. channels. Sadly, Jody's been advised by family members who actually work for the V.A. to not try to make any waves or her medical paperwork could disappear at the click of a computer mouse. Scary, isn't it? Jody's been waiting the better part of two months to have the surgery scheduled and if she has to wait much longer, it could well become a medical emergency. She's been in constant pain for much longer than that. Please pray that she'll get the medical help she needs sooner, rather than later.
