Here we are! Amber turned 18 yesterday and we saw a specialsit about her three herniated discs that are causing stenosis (pinching of the nerve bundle) that you can see in the shot on the MRI film that I took a digital picture of! See the bottom three darker discs.......the light colored tube that the nerve bundle runs through behind and the bulging discs that push the nerve bundle there pinched back! She will be going for ESI (epidural spinal injection) on Wednesday morning....prayers for her would be appreciated! She has a long road of recovery that has been mentioned may take 2-6 months, physical therapy, meds and injection that will hopefully promote her recovery from this pain and horrible circumstance that she has!
We tried to celebrate the best we could and here she is with Anthony and friends, Maggie and Adam! :0) It was resees pieces cake from Dairy Queen! Pretty yummy.
