It’s amazing how severe pain can just stop you in your tracks! Man, I’ve been wrestling with some pretty horrible pain, and have wondered when it would end. For eleven days, I was in the hospital while doctors tried to figure out why I was in so much pain. The long and short of it is that I had a staph infection in my blood, and it lodged in a muscle in my abdomen/left hip. The inflammation in the muscle caused my Sciatic Nerve to be pinched; thus, one weeping patient. I’ve been home on IV antibiotics, and am trying to heal. It is a very difficult and slow process, and I’m trying to stay up and positive. Oh, there are those times that I am overwhelmed and have had it, but I am trying to baby step my recovery. I had another priesthood blessing last night, which helped remind me that Father is near to help and speed recovery. I’m grateful for the real power of the priesthood of God.
