Urgent Prayer Request--Update

I have been suffering with some back pain for the past month. Physical therapy and medications are not helping. Saturday was a very tough day, spent in the local urgent care center. I was sent to the hospital for an MRI. The results were in at 1:30 pm today. It seems I have a 9cm mass on the my L4-L5 nerve root. I was sent to my internist who made a referral and am scheduled for neurosurgery at 10:30 tomorrow morning in Kearney NE. I would appreciate all your prayers. I want to heal quickly so I can be about the Lord's work with little interruption.

We have returned from the preop stuff--I am scheduled for surgery Thursday morning at 6am. I will be in the hospital for a couple of days depending on how difficult it is to extricate the cyst from the nerve roots. We are praying it is a synovial cyst--we have been assured that is the best kind to have--almost always benign and seldom return. However, there is much he does not know until he gets in there. He says the odds are good there will be no paralysis or permanent nerve damage. He recommends 6 weeks down time--I am praying for much less. Thank you all for your prayers---please continue to remember us.

Take the down time. Don't rush the recuperation! We love you and are praying.

I know you won't want to spend six weeks recuperating, but listen to your doctors. Really! You'll regret it later if you don't.

I have had some experience with this and there are several reasons that it is very important to follow those directions. Your body will thank you later if you take it easy for the six weeks, rather than try to "suck it up" and push forward.

(Also, your post-op physical therapy will go much better if you don't rush the recuperation time.)

Praying for you!

Neva dear,
I posted a prayer for you yesterday, but don't see it today. I've been awake since 6AM in prayer for you, the success of your surgery, skill for your medical team to be guided by God's loving hands, and for your recovery - that you will be able to have faith in your post-op team and follow their instructions toward full recovery.

Love you, dear friend and am continuing in prayer for you!
