Hi Jane, I have been thinking about you and your upcoming back surgery. I will pray for peace about it. I am sure this is a very scary thing since Nancy just had hers. I know your profile says you have had a few back surgeries already so you probably have a good idea of what is to happen. I have had spinal fusion in my neck and I was going to be paralyzed within 3-6 months so I really didn't have a choice. I have a little idea of what you must be going through. I had to wait on my surgery for quite a while. I do remember when the day finally came I had unbelievable peace. I am going to pray that you experience that now. Have you been able to quit smoking. I had been praying for that as well. How is that going? Take care and know there are many on the board who will be faithful to pray for you. Take care.
