10 days! Neurosurgeon   2 comments

Ten days pain free! Whoo-Hooo!! Ten precious days: dogs, laughing, walking, errands, laughing, visiting, laughing. Did I mention laughing?? There is so much laughter! Jillian, GeorgePaul and I did errands and visited the dentist and a carwash and Target. We just enjoyed every minute together and laughed and loved.

Underneath the laughter, there is some anxiety; David and I work to not show this to GP, and to place this in His hands.

The Upper Cervical Care is progressing well. GP’s initial correction has held for 14 days. This has surprised the doctors! The muscles that have been comfortable in the wrong position are starting to ignore their ‘muscle memory’ and listen to the healing brainstem. Great news!

Today, we are meeting with another neurosurgeon in Los Angeles. It is important to continue this process in learning about surgery options for GP. Trigeminal Neuralgia is progressive. It is also fickle and has periods of remission. This is why we will continue to meet the neurosurgeons and increase our knowledge.

We are thankful for God’s direction at every step, and in every moment. We are very thankful for the many friends who have told us that they are continuing to pray for GP and for us. We know that He hears.
