God uses EVERYTHING to teach us....

After four weeks of the worst pain ever, feeling like I must be nuts cause they couldn't find anything wrong. I finally got an answer today. They didn't see the HUGE kidney stone because it is on my spine in my left kidney.The pain and discouragement I have been feeling has been a first for me. I was so frustrated!! But I do know that God uses everything in our life to teach us something. After losing a parent I am so much more sympathetic of people who go through that. And I know after going through so much pain I will always have more compassion for people who are in pain. It begins to make you crazy!! So Wednesday they will be doing my surgery and after a week with a horrid stent I should be back to normal. But I know whats ahead and its a bummer. I have had the stent before and it is awful...But I am choosing joy! It could be so much worse. So Lord please dont let it be in vain. Teach me what you would have me learn through this.
And a big Thank you to Dr Connor (aka Dr McDreamy) for being my hero

Your beautiful story brought tears to my eyes. Choosing joy is one of the most difficult things, and I admire you more than you could ever know. I couldn't even imagine the pain that you have endured, but I know for a fact that it is most definitely not in vain. I can't wait to see how the Lord continues to work through all of this. You have inspired me already (and countless others) with your faith and strength. I respect you. I look up to you. I honor you and I love you.
