No pictures today. I am struggling. But yesterday, Palm Sunday, began the holiest week of the year in the Liturgical Season. This week for me will be quiet, or as quiet as I can make it. We all know that we are not in control. And apparently God is brining me to my knees once again as I deal with this back pain. During this most Holy Week I am in pain.
Seven months ago this pain began as sciatica and I have seen a Chiropractor every week. There is improvement. But about 3 weeks ago the location of the pain shifted directly into the lower back and at times even lower. The pain on several occasions has been so severe I have contemplated the ER. Yesterday was one of those days.
Finally, after taking as much meds as I knew was safe, I planted myself on the bed on ice. The pain finally eased and I was able to sleep. This morning, although it know it is there, it is tolerable.
I see the Dr. tomorrow and I am sure an MRI will be ordered. I had X-rays 2 weeks ago that were negative but we all know now that X-rays are not always conclusive. I avoided the MRI initially because I didn't want to shell out the $$$$ right before taxes are due ( tomorrow!!!!)
So if you don't mind and you think about it ....can you offer up prayers? I have found in my life that the things I am most fearful of God will place before me. Yes, there is a lesson to this....I am just a slow learner:))
