I would greatly appreciate some prayers being lifted up on my behalf. With my typical propensity for rotten timing, I am experiencing back spasms in my lower back. I have a pretty high pain threshold, but these are bringing back bad memories of back labor. Kevin took me to the doctor yesterday, and he prescribed pain meds and muscle relaxants. It was better last night, but laying down overnight has made it worse again. My biggest worry is that I’m supposed to play the piano and sing Sunday night for our church’s Christmas program, including a three-hour dress rehearsal on Saturday afternoon. My poor director is already so stressed; calling her to tell her I can’t perform would give the dear woman a heart attack.
So, please pray for the meds to work. Pray that I find a way to sleep that doesn’t make me wake up with worse spasms in the morning.
And, please pray for my mom. She is having stomach surgery tomorrow to repair an issue with her small intestine. Pray for a quick recovery so that she can enjoy Christmas.
Update: They have cancelled my mom’s surgery. Some areas in Spokane (where her surgery will be held) have received 30 inches of snow. We have about 15 in Colville – and it’s still coming strong. All non-emergency surgeries have been cancelled for today and tomorrow. Which is good, since she’ll be able to enjoy Christmas. But it’s also bad, because they won’t be able to do her surgery until after the New Year, which means paying next year’s deductible, when this year’s had already been met.
Thanks so much. I love knowing that I can post something here and know that my wonderful online friends will be praying for me.
