"I didn't know what it was but after over a month of excruciating pain I finally started to get some answers," she continued explaining. "I got an MRI and a CT scan and then was told that I need to go to Cedar Sinai. I came to Cedar Sinai last Friday thinking that I was going to get another scan on my back and then go home. Instead, I was admitted and they immediately started testing me for things in my blood."

She wrote, "I'm still in pain, but I am hopeful that with the surgery my back pain will diminish and the antibiotics that they will continue to give me intravenously through a pick line when I'm finally released in a few days It will take care of the rest of the infection in my spine and I'll be back to 100 [prayer and heart emojis] thank you to everyone at Cedar Sinai for taking such good care of me. This, too shall pass. [heart emojis] (sic)"
