No Fusion. XRays were incorrect.
No Ehlers-Danlos Testing. The genetics doc didn't feel I was hypermobile enough to warrant it.
No more findings. The MRI's just showed that silly spot of swelling in the bone marrow they always show- nothing else!

A whole lotta nuthin'.

So the genetics doctor said he'd speak with colleagues and get back to me. The rheumatologist said she'd speak with colleagues and get back to me. She said the next step is for me to visit the pain mgmt doc which I will see on Tuesday for the first time.

In the meantime, I'm still hopeful and feeling better. This past week was terrible in terms of pain. But I think with the temps getting warmer, I should be in for a more comfortable time.

So with the news of nuthin', I remain hopeful in the Lord knowing He will sustain me. I'm thankful for this period of perserverance and maturity building.

Love you Gillian and praying for you constantly. Yesterday, in the wee hours of the morning I was having trouble sleeping so I decided to start praying. I was praying for you and a thought occurred to me that I am sure has already occurred to you: God knows the name of your disease/disorder. Even if the doctors never know, He's named it. Somehow that made me feel better and I prayed that He would help your doctors figure it out. I just love how much smarter our Father is than anyone else!
