Prayers for Stanley M.

This note came in a couple of days ago, but today I thought I would also ask this group to pray for Stanley. The prayer hot line at Ananda Village is praying for Stanley, as well.

Stanley’s wife, Elizabeth, is the director of the Ananda Center in Tuscon, AZ.

prayer request: Stanley M., age 80.  Tucson Arizona.
Description: very tall, African-American, peaceful nature
Condition – fluid building up on the brain.  He had a surgery just a few weeks ago to correct that same condition.  A large hole was cut into his skull, and fluid removed.  The condition has now returned, and causes severe headaches, and pressure on the nerves resulting in pain along the spine.Visualize the fluid being absorbed back into the brain tissue – a natural process.

E-mail from Shraddha:

Dear Mary,

Can you please have Stanley M. back on the healing prayer list.  He had been recovering well from the surgery until just a couple of days ago, when he again started having severe headaches.  Elizabeth took him in
for an appointment with the neurosurgeon, and they did another cat scan.
The scan showed that he is again having fluid building up on the brain, this
time on both sides.  Hopefully the fluid will naturally absorb back into the brain tissue, that is a natural process that often happens.

However, the doctor told Elizabeth that if anything at all gets worse, to
not wait, but bring him into the hospital…

Please pray that the fluid will naturally absorb back into the tissues and
that he will continue to heal quickly from the surgery a few weeks ago.

Thank you so much, Sraddha W.

And finally – in closing, I offer you this video, below,  in honor of this season preparing for Easter:

God bless you all.

Ps – Last year I wrote a piece on Sacred Exits, East and West – with special reflections on Paramhansa Yogananda and Jesus Christ.

It has a section that begins:
Paramhansa Yogananda and Jesus Christ
Swami Kriyananda, in ch. 19 of The Path, wrote of the special link between Jesus and Yogananda…

    This just in:

    Dear Mary,

    I want to give you a quick update on Stanley in Tucson. He had another cat scan yesterday, and it showed definite improvement. There is less fluid on the brain, and no new bleeding. He is feeling better in the last week, with fewer headaches of less intensity than before. There is another cat scan scheduled in two weeks.

    Please keep up the prayers that his body will continue to heal, the fluid re-absorb from the brain and Divine Mother’s light fill his being. Both he and Elizabeth are very grateful for the prayers coming his way.

    Blessings, Sraddha

    Stanley is doing a little better – but they don’t know if it is completely resolved yet. He will have another CAT scan soon.
