Oh my aching back!!!!

I have been in bed for the past week with a herniated disk in my lower back. The problems really started Sunday afternoon and by Monday morning it was all I could do to get myself off the couch and to urgent care. I went for an MRI on Tuesday and the results revealed a herniated disk in my lower back. I have had problems with my back over the past few years, but never to this degree. I am feeling a lot better compared to Monday and Tuesday, but still have sharp shooting pains when I am on my feet for too long or move the wrong way. I go on Wednesday to meet with a specialist. I think my options are going to be steriod shots or surgery. I am hoping the shots will do the trick, but will do whatever the doctor thinks best! I have been blessed with phone calls, text messages, visits and food from all of our wonderful family and friends! I will keep you posted with updates as much as possible. (Have you ever tried typing while laying down? It's not very easy! haha) For now, please keep me and my family in your prayers! :)
