In Nov of 2016 Marlita started having hip pain, thinking it was a pulled muscle, she didn't do much about it. After the new year 2017 Marlita was feeling more discomfort and in early March, we saw the family Dr who gave her a a prescription for Physical Therapy. Marlita did 5 weeks of therapy and the therapists were concerned because she was doing the exercises but was not getting relief from the pain. The next step was Orthopedics, who referred us to Spine Clinic where God hand picked a most caring neurosurgeon for her. She helped us through the next steps of getting the tests that were needed. Marlita by this point was having much lower back pain, with numbness in her legs from the knee down. She now lays on the couch only getting up to use the bathroom and up to bed. The last test at this point was a biopsy of tissue which is showing that there is cancer in her body....... there are many details of her health and treatment that we do not know at this point, but will learn as we meet with the oncologist, Lord willing soon. We,( Marlita and her family), trust the unknown future to the God who knows the beginning of this story to the end.
