Status Update: Between Tests

12 12 2011

So this is how it happened. I was at Kohl’s today ever so briefly to pick up a couple of gifts to finish off my list when suddenly, my right leg quit on me. I could not put any weight on it whatsoever. It hurt, but it wasn’t the pain that was getting in my way. It was my useless appendage. I slowly made my way out of Kohl’s, sliding my right leg behind me. Thank God I had the wisdom to park in the first handicapped spot.

I called my team at Beaumont and they told me the situation was potentially very serious and that I needed to get to the closest ER ASAP. I called Don, who picked me up and we were on our way to U of M.

That’s where we are now. The docs did a thorough neurologic exam, which I passed with flying colors. They sent me for a veinous ultrasound to look for blood clots in my leg, but thank God, all was fine on that test. They are just about to take me for an MRI of my spine and we are praying that the result is a pinched nerve, which would be the lesser of two evils. The other possibility that they are looking for is a metastases to my spine. Let’s pray its not that.

I’m on my way now — rolling down the hallway. We will have results soon and will keep you posted.

Please put your healing hands on Amy. Protect her spine from cancer, call back any metastases if that is present. Release any pressure on her nerves and allow our sister to walk again.

We ask this in Jesus name, Amen
