Macro that will open a Word Document based on the first two words of the paragraph in which the cursor currently is

Last Modified: 2010-04-30
I need help writing a macro that will open a pre-existing word document for me and make that newly opened document active document. The name of the file to be opened will be based on the first two words of the paragraph in which the cursor currently is plus the word medication.
So if the cursor is currently in the following paragraph:

Medical History
This is just a test paragraph to check if this macro
will open a new document for me based on the first two words of this paragraph which are Medical History in this case plus  the word Medication.

In the above case macro will open a document with the following path and name (C:\Test\Faheem Ahmad Medication).

Thanks for your help in anticipation.
