So, some of you may know that my back has been hurting me for the past few weeks. I went and got an M.R.I. on Thursday which was pretty freaky. Definitely not something I'd like to do again! Well, I went to my chiropractor this morning to review the M.R.I. and he told me that I have a major problem. I have a bulging disk which is pinching my sciatic nerve. I guess in chiropractic talk this is not good! So he then recommended that I consult a neurosurgeon to see what my options are. He pulled a few strings, and got me the first available appointment (Monday 9 a.m.) with the best neurosurgeon in Redding. Basically, my chiropractor said that things don't look good, and he's thinking surgery. He told me that I am absolutely, under no condition to work until we've figure everything out. So I am officially on disability/ unemployment effective immediately. All of this happened before 10 a.m. today. Needless to say I've had a long, emotional, draining day. I'm exhausted, and tired of talking about my dang back. I'm in a TON of pain still, so if ya'll would be praying for my back, and for a slight miracle, that would be outstanding. Also, seeing as I'm without much of anything to do, feel free to come on over and keep me company! I know it's not the end of the world, and I know that God's totally going to take care of me, but I can't help but get a little freaked out about the whole situation. I just want the pain to go away, and to be back to my normal life.

I'll be sure to keep everybody up to date with the plan of action for my back.

Matt and I will definitely be praying for you. I'm glad he was able to tell a little about his story. We would love to talk with you more about...especially to encourage you in it and for to know that you are not alone!
