    For those that do not know, I have had 2 back surgeries in the past. I had the first in October 07 and then had complications and had the second one to fix the complications in August 2008. It has been quite a bumpy road with other complications that I have needed spinal injections for pain and other stuff. Recovery has been slow but things have progressed none the less. I am still unable to work due to the pain I deal with on a daily basis. But I have continued to try find a way to make money as well.
    On Monday I was dealt another proverbial wrench into my life or a curveball and the left rod in my back that holds my spine straight broke. This was extremely painful but I didn't find out it broke until Tuesday when I went to the emergency room. The pain was so bad by then that it hurt to breathe because when my back moves just a little bit it causes pain. They took xrays and saw the rod broke about half way down my back. I need a third surgery now to fix it but the earliest I will be able to get in for surgery is late next week. so in the mean time I am severely limited to what I can do due to pain. I have a new bump where the rod broke because hte one end is sticking out a little. I joke that one morning I might wake up with it protruding through my skin. lol but I am told the screws are holding it still that it won't cause any further damage-just a lot of pain.
    So I am just asking for prayers or happy thoughts or what ever you may offer that this can be dealt with as quickly as possible. I am realizing I will have to go through the months of recovery and rehab all over again that I had hoped was all over. I will be back to needing help with everything again and I hate that. but hopefully this will be the last time and there hopefully will not be a 4th surgery needed. I hope that it will all be relatively easy to go through since it is my third time going through it. thanks for reading through this and your prayers or good happy thoughts.


    *** Update*** The surgery is now scheduled for Thursday May 31

    I am so sorry this has happened. I have prayed and will continue to do so.
    Once you have a definite date, please let us know, so we can pray especially that day

    Oh, Deals, I'm so sorry to hear about one more surgery for you...and the pain you're having to endure.
    I'll keep you in my prayers, and like Skippy said, let us know when your surgery is and we'll send more prayers your way, Hon. I don't know who that pretty man is, but if he's helping you then the magic is working...
