An Update On My Husband: Good News!

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who have been praying for my husband and also thank you for being patient with me during this time.  I have good news to share, that strangely enough was able to happen because of some bad circumstances.

It was two weeks ago when his pain began on a Wednesday.  He had been going to the doctor for massage therapy and traction treatments every other day with no apparent improvement.  Our insurance, however, would not pay for anything else until he had tried this form of treatment for a full month.  He was *maybe* noticing a slight improvement by the following wednesday, but not definitely.

The next morning, he was rear-ended on his way to work by an elderly man in a BMW.  There has no damage to his Jeep, as the small car pushed it up and went under it, but his back was hurting mush worse.  So bad, in fact, that he had to leave school to return to the doctor to be re-examined.  The doctor confirmed that the discs were further herniated after the accident, and his office quickly contacted the other driver's insurance.

My husband took off of work on Friday and also Monday because the pain was so great, and that was really hard for him to do since he has already used up all of his sick days this school year.  When he went back in to see his doctor on yesterday (Monday) afternoon, the doctor had already heard back from the man's insurance company, who was willing to pay for his treatments, and since it was no longer our medical insurance covering the bills, the doctor went ahead and gave him a cortisone shot during his visit yesterday.

He is already feeling much better, and in a few days after the swelling around his spine has had the chance to go down, the doctor is fairly certain that another few days of traction and massage will get the discs back into place.

Keep on praying for him, since the ordeal is not yet over, but it is looking hopeful.  It's hard to be thankful for a car accident causing your loved ones to be in more pain than they already were, but it actually helped put an end to his pain two weeks earlier than would have been possible.  For that, I am certainly thankful.  You never know how when a bad circumstance is really a blessing in disguise.

For some reason I just now saw this. Thank you! He is still feeling good, and his doctor says things are looking almost back to normal already.
