Saturday- not Smiling

This has been a ridiculously HARD week.

Some family yucky stuff that has added stress.  Blech, blech, blech.

Plus, the big deal: I have talked to my doctor, done a CT scan, and now I'm seeing a neural surgeon.  Which adds up to me probably having another lower back spinal surgery. I am so not happy about this... But at least I knew it was possible.

When the surgeon removed the nasty synovial cyst on my lower spine he warned me that it might grow back.  Until I have a MRI (which I thought I couldn't have 'cuz I've got a metal plate and screws in my neck, but they are titanium so I was wrong, yay.), we won't know exactly what's going on with the soft tissue.  But the CT scan shows some pretty weird bone stuff going on down there.

Not happy right now.
And scared.
And worried.

Glad God has it all under control, 'cuz I certainly don't!

Sorry you're going through this. I too struggle with physical problems with my back. Pain and anxiety about the cause of it can be exhausting. Praying that you will find some answers and relief!

Thank you, Kathy! I know God's got this, but I feel exhausted and overwhelmed at having to do it over and over and over again...
Bless you, I can pray over your back, too.
