Is the third time a charm for Alex' back?

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

This Wednesday it's a toss-up between the same procedure as the first two, or something new called Radio Frequency Ablation.  Radiofrequency ablation (or RFA) is a procedure used to reduce pain. An electrical current produced by a radio wave is used to heat up a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from that specific area.

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 perform the procedure he selects as perfectly as possible. The doctor will be using fluoroscopy to locate the exact spots into which he will deliver either the needles with Cortisone, or the implements to deliver the RFA.


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


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