Gratituesday

I am so thankful for God's healing hand on our bodies. Last year at this time I was recovering from back surgery. Going into the surgery my doctor told me not to get my hopes up for a full recovery. I had a broken vertebrae low in my back that had been pinching off the nerves in my legs. My doctor was unsure if the feeling would come back to my feet. I could still walk but my feet had numb spots in them. I was in horrible pain all the time.

Although the recovery was very painful, I spent more time reading the Bible and praying than I ever had. The Lord gave me comfort each and everyday. One year later...I only have some tingles in my feet at the end of the day. I have full movement in my back with NO pain!! That in itself is such a blessing to me. Thank you Lord for healing my body.

Jen,

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.

AND God is good! He must have sent me to your blog for a reason.

I m 25 yo and I just came from the chiropractor. He says I have the back of a 70 yo. I have a broken vertebrae that is doing the same thing as well as a bulging disk and pulled vertebraes in my neck. I will be walking and all of the sudden my left side will go numb (totally not just the normal tingling numbnes) and I will fall. It is totally embarassing! He has been trying therapy but thinks that surgery is the ultimately the only option.

It really scares me! I have never heard of a successful back surgery. I am so glad I found your blog and I am now a follower!

God Bless You!
Jodi
