things go from bad to worse

As many of you know I am at the mercy of 6 failed back surgeries and all that comes with that. Well starting this past winter, I started falling and falling more and more. I was stubborn and held out as long as possible till I just could no longer stand it. I was scared one day when I opened the front door to let the fur babies outside and the next thing I knew I was laying on my right side across the porch floor with all 3 furbabies giving lots of kisses. Next time, I was mopping my floor and down I go. So I went to the ortho surgeon on the 13th and he ordered a mylogram on the 20th, That was done last Friday. I felt like I had been beaten in my middle back all weekend and just off a little. I had a physical last Thursday. The nodules on my thyroid have increased and she found several lumps in my right breast. Not afraid to admit, this scared the you know what out of me. My Mom is a breast cancer survivior and 2 of her sisters have died from cancer. I have shed so many tears. I am just a nervous wreck. I go in for the ultra sound of the thyroid in the morning and my diagnostic mammogram next Tuesday. Then I go on this Friday to find out if there is a reason why I have such weakness on my right side and leg. I get the left knee checked out next Wed. So, yes things seem to be going from bad to worse. I am trying not to worry but hey I am human.
Please pray for me and for my sweet blogging friend Angie Stevens for a lil raggedy angie she is dealing with a lot of the same issues I am dealing with. I really just want my mobility back. This limping is getting on my nerves and not being able to do things the way I used to is getting on my nerves. So , please say a prayer for me!
Hugs,
Lynn

So sorry about all of this. I will say a prayer. Poor Raggedy Annie.....she is going through a lot.
I am having surgery next week. It may be cancer returning to another area. I have been cancer free for over 20 years. It is so stressful not knowing. I will be glad when they do surgery and can tell what is going on.
Good luck to you. I'd say try not to worry, hah, but that doesn't work at all. Maybe try doing some relaxing things. Rest and pamper yourself.
