Bursitis and Prayer Requests

OK, so I went to the clinic yesterday morning. They took x-rays and decided that I have bursitis in my left hip. The doctor gave me some better pain medicine and it's helping, but doesn't keep the pain away. Those of you who are familiar with the pain scale from 1-10 will understand what I mean when I say that the pain went from an 8 to a 4. Today I'm working on relaxing while I move. I think I've been in pain so long that when I go to move I tense up and it makes it all worse. When I make myself relax it's not so painful. I was able to change the bed linens today so I'm thankful for that. Alan is going to take me to the commissary after work tomorrow to help me shop. We haven't found the upload cord yet or I'd be posting pic of Alaina. Sorry to keep you waiting. Please keep my nephew Andy in prayer. There is a problem with one of his kidneys that may require surgery. They are doing tests and we should know something soon. He's only 2 weeks old and so it's scary especially for his mom and dad.
