Prayers Needed

Sun Dec 04, 2005 12:06 pm

Hi Guys,

About 2 years ago I was diagnosed with (TMJ) temporomandibular joint disorder. I have been wearing orthodontics for 18 month getting ready for the surgery part of this. I will be going in for surgery Wednesday December 7th. I will be out of commission for about 10 to 14 days with my mouth wired shut for about 6 weeks.

I humbly ask for your prayers during this ordeal.


Here's the disorder..

Here's the cure.. My procedure will be a combination of the 2nd and 3rd in the 3 photos at the bottom of the page.

WJ, you have our prayers. Bet some if the guys are wondering what it would cost to get that done to their wives.
