If it's not one thing, it's something else

Remember Rosanne Rosannadanna from Saturday Night Live? Well, she was absolutely right - if it's not one thing, it's something else. Everytime I think I fixed one problem with my body, something new needs to be dealt with. I've been having back problems for over 10 years. It's finally gotten to a point where I can't take it any longer. I have pain down my legs, in my hips and my right leg is numb from the hip to the knee. I've really had enough. It's affecting my quality of life and I'm so tired of it. I have decided that I need to have the surgery to fix this. I have fought this for years because my sister had the surgery about 20 years ago and it was a big deal. Today I found out from one of my friends that she had it and it's done a lot differently! It sounds like something I can handle and if it will relieve my pain and let me live normally again, I'm all for it. Pray for me, will you, regarding this? I know it's such a delicate area of the body.

On a better note, I did go to my first Ladies Bible study today. We actually just talked and got to know one another today. It was wonderful. It's a great mix of ladies and we all got along so great. There was 6 of us and that's such a nice number. We are doing the bible study by Beth Moore on Daniel. I can't wait to get started on it! I would love to go to the WOW convention that is coming to our state because Beth will be there, but I don't think my back could handle it, unless I get something done by then and am able to go. I'm going to really be praying about all this!

I'm still putting together my son's lesson plans. It was totally worth it to put off school for one week so I could be totally organized. I'm feeling so much more relaxed about everything and I know it's because I'm getting everything so put together. I'm really going to enjoy my last two years of homeschooling!! I've always enjoyed it, but now I'm savoring it.

I'll be posting pictures of my things I'm making, soon. If I can just feel better, I'll be able to do even more. *sigh* Like I said, it's always something!!

    True it's always something. Hope you can get the surgery if it helps you to feel better. Living with pain cannot be very pleasant.

  4. Hi there,
    That's wonderful that there has been surgical advances in that area since you've last heard!
    The Ladies Bible Study sounds wonderful. I wonder if there is any thing like that in my area... it's great that it's a small group. You're right to savor the last few years!
