The good news is that I (Joan) finally have a tentative surgery date – August 8. That still seems a long time to wait as I’m constantly dealing with pain, it interferes with my sleep, etc.
The bad news is that they aren’t sure exactly what the surgery will look like. There is this other spot farther up the spine. And newer symptoms I’m having means that spot also needs to be addressed. So, I’m off for more x-rays today and an MRI of my entire spine on Tuesday.
I’m thankful that my doctor is being thorough. They seem confident that they’ll be able to address all the issues that I’m having.
As always, thanks for praying!
