I apologize I haven't written the past few days. As you all know, I hurt my elbow about a month ago. After an x-ray, MRI (2), and an ultrasound in Poland, it was determined that I had partially torn a ligament in my elbow, have a bone bruise, and have a piece of something floating in my elbow joint. They told me before I chose the rehab route that I could immediately get surgery to take out the floating piece, of I could try to rehab and see how my elbow responded to treatment and physical therapy. I opted to do about a week of rehab after resting it for a few weeks, and I continued to experience problems with my flexion and extension, along with some catching. Well, after much prayer, talking to a surgeon here in Lynchburg, and talking with my family, I opted to come back to the States to get my elbow checked out by doctors here.
They determined in Poland from my symptoms that I needed to get the piece of cartilage or bone (actually not sure what it is) taken out. I felt like I was missing out on some things in translation medically, and the club graciously allowed me to pick whether I wanted to get surgery in Poland or get it here in the States. I flew back on Sunday morning and got into Lynchburg, VA Sunday night. I had a doctor's appt. yesterday, where they determined that I would need to get a new MRI, because they could not read the one I brought from Poland. I got the MRI today, and tomorrow it will be read. I am praying that the Lord's will, will be done. I know that He already knows what is going on, so I can rest in that :).
I will keep you all posted! Depending on what the MRI shows, and when and if surgery is needed, will determine whether or not I can return to Poland to be with my team in the FINALS of playoffs. It was a tough decision, because I didn't want to leave my team, but at the end of the day, I had the most peace about returning and figuring everything out here. If things progress quickly here, I will join my team for the FINALS of playoffs. In the mean time, I will be rooting for them from afar!! GO CCC :) Tomorrow they play their first playoff game.
It has been a whirlwind past few days, but I am so thankful that the doctors here are working me in and seeing me quickly which is a huge blessing.
I would appreciate your prayers!! I find that when I am home I am pretty busy, but know that I will update on here when I can.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.--Ephesians 3:20-21
God is good :)
I loved this from "My Utmost For His Highest":
"When you have a right-standing relationship with God, you have a life of freedom, liberty, and delight; you are God’s will. And all of your commonsense decisions are actually His will for you, unless you sense a feeling of restraint brought on by a check in your spirit. You are free to make decisions in the light of a perfect and delightful friendship with God, knowing that if your decisions are wrong He will lovingly produce that sense of restraint. Once he does, you must stop immediately."
