In Jesus Name I Pray
Well, today is the day I get my Myelogram. I’ve got to be at the hospital at 8:30am. My procedure doesn’t start until 9:30am. I could be there most of the day depending on how I do during the hours of observation following. At least I know I want be told that can’t finish it for the fifth time in four months. Looks like I will be getting Myelograms the rest of my life as long as I’ve got this particular spinal cord stimulator planted within me.
All I pray today is for God’s good, pleasing, and perfect will to take place. I’m certainly hoping I don’t experience another spinal fluid leak which I did experience my last pain shot injection. That will be the greatest thing they will be watching for with this procedure. I recall the extreme ongoing headache I had for a few days before going to the emergency room. Fortunately they were able to do what they call a blood patch which was painful, yet very relieving.
Over this long period of time and procedures I’ve learned you can’t take anything for granted. You can’t just assume things will go as planned. After all, the people doing things are only human. Therefore, we must bathe everything in prayer and put it in God’s hands. Then, trust Him to guide the doctors and nurses every step of the way. God, I’m asking that this Myelogram might go smoothly and reveal the very root of my constant nerve pain. Whatever needs to be seen I pray it will be seen. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray.
“You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father.”
