Alex' back is back.

As we posted a couple of weeks ago, my back pains have kicked up quite a bit.  So, for my extreme back pain I will be undergoing a series of Cortisone shots in the Facet Joints, [see diagram below].

To provide relief I will get stuck with the needles once again - as an ambulatory surgical patient.  This will be the second in a series of facet joint shots, and will take place next week, September 12th. I will be, once again, placed under full sedation during the procedure.

Please, ask your Divine Spirit Teachers and Guides to send Strong Healing Prayers my way.  Include prayers to wrap me in a healing blue blanket and to guide the specialist's hands to place those needles - as done last time, 4 on each side - to the right locations for the most relief. The doctor will be using fluoroscopy to locate the exact spots into which the needles will deliver the Cortisone compound.


Please also wrap Eliza in a blanket of calm comfort, as she waits for me to come out of the surgery suite.


And as always, may your Good Deeds be returned to you, many-fold.  Thank you all, very much!
