I Am In Desperate Need Of Your Prayers Right Now

I'm calling all you of you powerful prayer warriors to do some praying for me today. On Wednesday when I went to pick up Luke my back went out. Luke is now 44 pounds and normally it's not a problem to pick him up, but there are times that my back, which has been bad for many years goes out. I was totally bummed when it went out as I have been faithfully walking and exercising lately and that threw off my exercise pattern. Along with my back going out I've been experiencing some severely painful muscle spasms in my upper leg/hip, for the last month, so when my leg would spasm, my back then would spasm, to say I've been in pain is an extreme understatement.

I finally decided to go to the Dr. yesterday and she told me that she thinks I have bursitis in my hip along with a bad disk in my lower back. She said to take it easy for a few days, she offered me some Vicaden, but I turned it down, what a big mistake that was, she also said I need to get into some physical therapy ASAP to help me to learn some exercise to help get me better. She also gave me a shot of Tordal in the hip and that did help. This morning when I woke up I felt a lot better, so stupid me I folded all the clothes that had been stacking up for the last few days and then helped direct the cleaning of the garage for a few minutes. I then took a shower and when I was getting out of the shower the pain hit me so bad that I could not move without screaming out in pain. Gordy got me to take 4 Ibuprofen which didn't really help that much and got me into bed the pain was not going away and I was so wishing I had taken that prescription from the Dr. I was able to get some stronger meds. in me and get out of bed, but am still in lots of pain. Needless to say I am desperate for a touch from Jesus today!!

My mom could also use your prayers right, ironically she has been suffering with extreme back pain. It all started after she was in that horrible accident back in May. She is scheduled to have surgery on Tuesday, we are praying once she has that surgery she will begin to get back to her normal self. She has basically been home bound for the last month, constantly either lying in her bed or on the couch. Please be praying for her as she goes into surgery on Tuesday, that she will be free from her pain and that the surgery will fix her disks once and for all.

I'm soooo very thankful that Luke has been healthy lately. Ever since May when the Dr. basically said that there was nothing else the medical community could do for Luke's lungs he has been better. I know that GOD reached down with His Healing Hand and touched Luke's lungs, he has been pneumonia free and hasn't had any major breathing problems since May, THIS IS A HUGE ANSWER TO PRAYER!! I also know that it would be so easy for God to reach down and heal my and my mom's back with the same Healing Hand and that's what I'm hoping you will agree with me in prayer.

As I said in my last post I have some exciting news to share with y'all and very soon I'm going to sit down and tell y'all about it!

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue

I'm praying for you and your Mom. I know some people (physicians) aren't for them, but I've found the only relief I get for my back problems comes from my chiropractor (and my massage therapist helps too). His name is Dr. Lorefeld, he's right on Bridgeport, reasonably priced (if your insurance won't help).
Lorfeld, Lance
9004 Bridgeport Way SwLakewood,WA98499 (map)
(253) 588-6343
Anyway, he's got me walking again and out of the pain--without meds!
Praying for healing from up above or through His earthly vessels.
Hugs, Ariele

I haven't checked in for several days and was so sorry to hear about your back - but delighted to see those gorgeous vacation photos!! It looks like you all had a wonderful time, and I am thankful that you were able to get away for the anniversary.

I will absolutely be praying for you and your mom. It is so hard to be out of commission when you are a mommy and have so much to do. I wish I could come do laundry and make dinner for you. (hug)

Blessings,
Kate

Father, I ask you to place your healing hand on Suzi, her mom, and on Luke today. Let them feel the warmth of your healing touch. Amen

Sue,

I'm so glad you came to my blog and commented!!! I got a new computer (my old one died) and I haven't been able to restore my saved links, so I haven't been to your blog in a while. I will certainly pray for your back. My Jared is total weight too when we pick him up and he's about 55 or 60lbs now. It was so much easier when he was littler. I keep telling my husband that I really need to start strengthening my core muscles, because he's certainly not getting any smaller and someday he's going to be an adult and we'll still be caring for him. We've got to pace ourselves for the long haul! I do wish we lived closer, I'd love to meet you and your family! Anyways...I'll be praying for you and your mom and the mom's retreat you are trying to put together! It sounds wonderful! God bless you! :)
