I'm eager to give you good news, too, Laney! Rit now I am in a process. Given the circumstances, today went stellar. I got some bad (ish) news about the injury. It appears my disc was split all the way from side to side, so it's a very "scary" hernia ton. The doctor was stunned by the injury, but .....
The Lord is in control.
In The meantime, the procedure went well. The doctor was in control, managed the intensity of the situation well, and was proficient in that he couldn't have been more steady and skilled. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy the numbness I was supposed to have after the procedure...in fact nothing felt numb at any point ever....but ....
I took my medication, asked my husband to take me to get a movie to distract me, and my daughter picked a PERFECT movie for us to watch...it was such a perfect family night. several friends called and couldnt have been better to me as they pateintly and lovingly made me laugh and caringly listened as I reviewed my laundry list of 'stuff" in an effort to process and move forward.
At the end of the day, I found myself thanking God for all of the wonderful answers to prayers I know many of you have sent up on my behalf. All things considered, today was a perfect day and it went as well as sit could have.
The injury is in God's hands. If I don't get results with this, I will have to go to the next level with the surgeons. That will involve me seeing both my surgeon and another who I will need to consult with for another opinion.
Please pray the Lord's Will be done. please pray for me, for blessings and special grace and direction for those in my life whom this affects, and whom are being affected by it. Please pray that the Lord work through the doctors who are handling my case.
Thank you for your prayers!
