    I posted this on the chit chat board as well-
    My dad had a pacemaker put in last month and now he is doing well. My mom has always had a bad back with degenerative discs. Lately her pain has been unrelenting, so she had an MRI. It turns out that she has a bone disease and maybe cancer as well- not good news. Please pray for them to find good treatment and to have peace in whatever happens.......thank you.

    Mom has a bone scan. Please pray that the spot on her spine will be benign- that's the thing that could be cancerous, but could also be a clump of blood vessels (ganglia). Thank you for your prayers- I covet them!

    You, your Mom, and all of your family are in my prayers at this difficult time. I prayer that the scan will show that there is no cancer.

    God bless; Pam

    They had driven to the hospital, only to find out that the machine wasn't working. So she has a reprieve!

    update on the ChitChat board, but she found out this week that there is no cancer.....yay! So that is ruled out and she can focus on her disc disease and getting help for that. Thank you for your prayers!

    Alaska,
    Sorry I'm just now reading this, but I will continue to pray for your Mom and Dad. PTL your Mom did not have cancer and I will pray that offer her methods to deal with DDD without surgery. I just went through a four level spinal fusion and I would not want anyone to have to go through that if they can avoid it. It was tremendously painful and a very hard surgery to go through. It seems to be taking forever to recover with a lot of pain to deal with on top of it. Of course having the DDD was painful as well but the meds they give now are a lot better.

    I will also pray for your strength in dealing with all of this.

    Take Care

    Yes, she has decided to postpone any surgery until she just absolutely has to have it. She has a better pain med, which she can take in the morning and, I think, in the evening. She does her housework in the morning and rests in the afternoon. Dad can fix supper, as now he likes to cook, so it's working out. They want to fly out to visit us this summer, but I won't count on anything until I see her.....her back may make it too painful to travel.

    I hope your back gets better soon. Thanks for writing!
