They decided to bring in extra help, reinforcements and not to use the sliding stint. This transition was much much smoother.

MRI was the next test. For those of you that have never had one before, be glad. MRI machines are loud, uncomfortable and you are in an enclosed space for a long period of time. It is pitch black, by the way. The X-ray and other tests are TBD. As of right now, I don’t know what the future will hold for me or how my body is going to react to all of these tests, medications and changes. But I just wish that I could have a day without pain.

Melissa is very sleepy now, so we will continue this post later.

Melissa, YOU are the MOST courageous person I know...What courage and to continue to write even when you must dicate. I only HOPE that YOU realize what YOU are doing for the rest of us!!!!!! You are the poster girl for WE CAN OVERCOME, WE WILL SURVIVE and WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE....Please know that so many of us have you in OUR HEART and PRAYERS....May I share couple of my favorite Bible verses with you,
Rom 8:38-39
I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor prinscipalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor nay other created thing shall be able to separate us from the LOVE OF GOD, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord....
I take this to mean that we have LOVE with us at all times through all things.

Ps 30:5 ....His favor is for life, weeping may endure for a night, but JOY comes in the morning.
This means to me that IT WILL GET BETTER, as you have heard so many times, "it is darkest before the light".

I look forward to meeting you when you can have company, or we can talk via SKYPE...in the meantime, I have you here.

Sharing Love/Hugs, Princeline

Stay strong! I give you a lot of credit for continuing to write as you go through this.

I just started to read your story and can't believe how incredibly brave and strong you are! Before coming to EmpowHer, I was the National Online Sales Manager at azcentral so although I never met you I know who you are. It sounds like you had a very tough night. Hang in there and I will reach back to you later.
