Surgery ahead. On Thursday, December 13th, I will be going through total shoulder replacement surgery. I have had severe problems with my shoulders, especially my right shoulder, and, on-going for many years, problems with my lower back. Over the past several months, I have been in severe pain. I was told at the end of July, that surgery on my back was not an option. So, I turned to making a decision concerning my right shoulder and the decision is to have my right shoulder totally replaced. This will relieve the pain in that shoulder. The excess pain began at the end of July and I now am riddled with pain across the back of my neck, in both shoulders, down both arms, into my wrists and now my hands, too. This may well be a flare up of arthritis. I can only take Tylenol for my pain now as I wait for surgery. It has been a really tough time waiting for my surgery date. So much pain.
Some people have prayed with me and for me. My wonderful pastor has prayed with me and through his prayer often the pain is lessened. Two Sundays ago, Pastor Mark told me that during the church service he felt this pain come up and over his right shoulder and the Holy Spirit spoke this message, "I am releasing Dorothy." I believe the Great I AM's message that Jesus is releasing me. I do not know exactly what this means, but, it is what I pray believing and have much expectation. It keeps me going day to day. Some days pain is less, other days, it seems to flare up. I am very weak overall.
Please keep me in your prayers as the time gets closer. We serve an awesome God. Your earnest prayers are most welcome at the time of surgery and the days and weeks after surgery. I will be in a sling for six weeks and rehab for 4 months.
I continue to commit my life to Jesus Christ and have great desire to continue serving him to fulfill His plan, His purpose for the days ahead.
