Not So Good News

So I found out today what is causing my severe back pain. I have a degenerative disc in my lower back. Can I not catch a break! I guess I am in a bad mood over it. They want to try to give me an epidural shot into my L4 disc. It would be some steroids and anti inflammatory stuff from what they have told me. Hopefully that will work for a few months. If it does not do anything then the next step will be surgery. I am really frustrated right now.
On a better note. I did Dentistry From The Heart this past Saturday and it was a lot of fun. We saw almost 400 people from what I know. It was a good experience and I was glad that I got to participate in that service. Most of the people were very grateful that we were willing to give up our time to help them out.

WE LOVE YOU HOLLEE!!!! Just think, when you decide to have kids you could go natural because you are used to pain :)
Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Looking forward to seeing you this weekend.

That really sucks! I'm sorry your falling apart. ;) Maybe TaMerra's right. The Lord's preparing you for natural birth, lol.
