In the Midst of It

I was scheduled to go for a nerve block in Augusta on October 15th in the hopes that the doctor would be able to pinpoint the source of my pain. When I went to sleep that night, something was different. My heart rate was slower and I actually got a good night's sleep for once.

I was trusting God to guide the doctor's hands as he would be the one injecting the medicine into my back. An unmistakable peace was with me as I drifted off to sleep.

When I woke up the next morning, I didn't have ANY pain! The miraculous thing was I wasn't in any pain on the way to my doctor's appointment either.

They ended up not even doing the nerve block because I wasn't in any pain. That type of nerve block is only helpful if you're in pain when they are doing it because that's the only way to tell if it was working.

I was a little upset that Mama had to take off work to come with me and they didn't do it. But, those thoughts quickly vanished when I realized this was the beginning of my miracle! No knew I had been praying God would take away the pain in my legs so I wouldn't need the nerve block.

It was an amazing feeling! The pain has tried to creep back in these past few days, but I'm standing on God's promises.

Don't stop believing in the midst of the storm!

P.S. I know I didn't do a Memories Rewind post on Wednesday. I have had tests to study for and deadlines to meet for my yearbook class.

Glad to read that you got some relief and a pass on an injection. Hope the pain keeps its distance.
