The skeletal survey revealed some minor damage. A few spots exist on my skull, arms, legs and ribs. But the primary damage was in two areas:
- my back - I have 3 compression fractures in my vertebrae
- my hip - this weakness is what caused the severe back pain that sent me to the doctor
Late in the afternoon, the Doctor releases me to spend Christmas at home. As I'm dressing and preparing to go home, I realize that all of the back pain is completely gone. The doctor loaded me up with various strength pain killers, because he said I would need them. However, the pain was totally and completely gone. This was the 1st miracle that God performed through all of this.
We got home just in time to change clothes and head to church for Christmas Eve service. What a tremendous reception I received from all of our friends at church. Everyone had heard the news and had been praying and nobody expected to see me at church. But much to everyone's surprise, God allowed me to come to church and worship on the eve of His birth.
