You guys just never cease to amaze me. When I came in here and read the things you wrote, I cried. You have really touched my heart. That means so much. Your prayers mean very much to me and if you would continue them, I would really appreciate it.
I'll let you know what I know. I've been having problems with my sciatic nerve. Been on med's and anti-inflammatories and finally saw an Orthopedic doc. He sent me in for an MRI after checking my reflexes, which I had no reflex in my right foot. We all figured a herniated disc. Well, Tues I went to see him for the results, and instead it seems there's a mass in my spinal cord.
They thought infection, though highly unlikely, or cancer that metastasized, or a tumor. That was quite a shock!
So they have run me through a series of tests. Blood work has ruled out infection. CT has shown little. Bone Scan came out negative. (There were no hot spots showing), which is good. I know that it wasn't cancer that started somewhere else and spread. I however DON'T know what it is yet. It hasn't ruled out cancer, it's just we know it didn't start out somewhere else and spread. I'm thankful for that!!!
I see the doc again today, and I guess I'll know more after that.
I want to let you know your prayers are helping! I cried like hell when I found out, but I've been calm, not upset. That has to be your prayers at work. So I thank you all from the very bottom of my heart. You have no idea how much they're really helping me. Some for family as well would be appreciated.
I will keep you updated. Thank you all so very much!
