During the procedure Monday on mom's back, they discovered she has another compressed vertebra. So 3 compression fractures instead of 2. Sometime in the last 3 weeks another vertebrae became compressed. They were only able to fix 2 of the fractures since, as the doctor explained, they can only do 2 at a time so instead of coming out of the procedure pain free . . . she's still hurting.
They have put her on a stronger pain medicine which helps a little, but of course doesn't take the pain away. She will have to go back in a couple of weeks for the same procedure to get the third compression fracture fixed.
The only way to keep the compression fractures from continuing is to start giving her injections every six months to strengthen the bones. But she has to have some teeth pulled before they can give her the injection, since the injection will make pulling any teeth nearly impossible, and my mom's teeth are not good.
In the middle of everything, my mom is trying to take maintenance chemo every week.
As you can imagine all of this is very discouraging to my mom, and to our entire family.
I feel like a broken record, but I need you all to join me in speaking healing over my mother. The issues just keep piling on and she needs a touch from Jesus.
We continue to put our trust in Him.
He is our Strength.
He is our Healer.
Please agree with me in prayer for my beautiful mom.
And thanks to everyone who has stuck with me this past year and a half.
I know it's been a long time since I wrote anything that wasn't about my mom.
But our world pretty much revolves around my mom's health these days.
Thank you all for praying. It is appreciated more than you can imagine.
