Where Have I Been?

I know that I've been posting infrequently this Summer. I apologize and especially to those of you waiting for personal shopping requests.  It bothers me when I can't get things done quickly or at all. I thought I'd fill you in on my crazy life. My 17 year old son is having back surgery for severe scoliosis in a few weeks. We only discovered he had it last year, but at that point his curve was already at 48 degrees. So it was too late for almost any treatment options.  However, we did pursue chiropractic treatment and had great faith in the promises made to use. Although the back cracker helped ease some of his pain, his curve has now progressed to 56 degrees and his ribs have twisted around to his back. After many appointments and research, he is going to have surgery.  This entails 2 rods in his back, 5 days in the hospital a month not doing much and almost a full year of no lifting/strenuous exercise.  To say I'm nervous is an understatement, but with prayer, I have a peace … [Read more...]
