    I sure would appreciate any prayers for tomorrow (Friday)! I'm scheduled for a cat scan at 11:00 A.M. My back hurts so bad my quality of life is mostly nonexistent! Had all the 'L's' fused together about four years ago. The morphine patch I wear for pain is the equivalent of 180 mgs. of oxycodone per day and it still gets unbearable at times. Time to do something else!!!!

    Looks like another surgery. Now have to decide, 'if ',and 'when'!

    Those decisions are always tough. My thought is to get it out of the way quick. I see the knee replacement surgeon on 12/11 and I also will push for a quick surgery.

    My problem is that the first one didn't work, will this make it worse again?
    I'll remember your appointment on 12/11!

    Thanks everyone for the prayers. God is trying to get my attention, I think. Yesterday, Saturday, I noticed something weird going on with my left eye. Went to the ER and they told me that I had a detached retina! Now surgery is scheduled for that! I'm falling apart, LOL.

    You're not falling apart. It is just your body screaming for a little attention from all those years of abuse.

    Thanks everyone for the prayers! Got the results posted online, I just don't know what it says. Lol . Waiting on the VA to call me and fill me in. There is five pages of things found wrong in my neck and lower back.
