Back to Houston....tomorrow!!

Vertebroplasty is back on!! I guess sometimes all good things must come to an end. Since we have been back from Houston, Alan's pain has returned. This past week and a half has been tough on him and us watching him deal with all of this pain again. He had those 3 weeks where the pain was minimum, but it's back and showing it's ugly face!! Talking with his Dr. last week, they want Alan to go ahead with the Vertebroplasty. It has been scheduled for this Thursday. We are leaving for Houston tomorrow morning and will be at the hospital I'm sure most of the day Thursday. The Vertebroplasty in December, Alan had to stay overnight for pain control, so we will just see how he does and pray the pain after the surgery is not as bad. I'm still dreading everything about this surgery, but trying to keep a positive attitude and just praying this helps with Alan's back and leg pain.
As always, we just ask for your prayers for Alan and our travels. Alan's dad will be traveling with us this time.
God is good...All the time!!
