Glimpses of GP   2 comments

GeorgePaul had a tough epic this morning, along with the constant pain of 7. Then, at 10:30 he went to a zero out of ten!!! Pain free means we see a little of the real GP!! He remained at a “0” until 2:30. Then, for an hour, he had 3 or 4 rises, but always came back down to 0. This has not happened before. He is back at a 7 as of 3:30 this afternoon, has had an epic and 3 rises. We are SO thankful for the moments with him! The dogs got a great romp with him, he paced around the yard and the house in one of his imaginative worlds, and he did not scream. at. all. These moments serve as a huge relief for him, as well as a reminder that state of pain is NOT a normal way of life.

We had an appointment with a NUCCA doctor today; (NUCCA – National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association.) The theory behind the upper cervical care, simply, is that your head needs to be on straight. If the head is misaligned, then all sorts of health problems can occur, including impacts on the trigeminal nerve. There is a man, James Tomasi, who suffered severly with TN for 12 years, and was healed through this care. He has written a book, What Time Tuesday?, that details his journey. (I don’t know how to underline the title with this blog format. 🙂 ) I had read this book and viewed the website for this doctor’s practice about a month ago. We were in the middle of the worst pain for GP at that time and did not pursue it. Last week, David was given this doctor’s card from one of his colleagues who is in a small group with this doctor’s parents! We made the appointment!

The doctor did several measurements and tests, and took some x-rays. GP has issues with the atlas bone and the upper cervical bones. We will go down again next Tuesday for a full report and a correction to the spine. This is different than an adjustment by a regular chiropractor. The changes are so gentle, that many patients do not even feel them.

We are always praying that GeorgePaul will be healed. We also know the One who heals.

  1. We are so hopeful to hear of GP’s progress and the opportunity to find healing through alternative treatments. We continue praying for complete healing. Praising God for today.

  2. Hopefully this will be an answer to prayer. It is always amazing how God works–the Dr.’s parents in a small group at our church–truly amazing!
