Update on Norm

My husband is not getting better. He has been in constant pain for 8 days. We can’t even attempt chiropractor treatment. He saw a pain specialist today. The doctor doesn’t think this is just a muscle problem. They changed his pain meds and ordered 2 MRI’s of cervical & thoracic spine and blood tests for tomorrow. Tried to do an MRI today but it was too painful so tomorrow they want to give him a double dose of vailum first. Pray he can tolerate the tests and for the doctors to figure out what is causing his pain and that Norm can get relief from the pain. Because Norm does not have insurance we have to pay up front for these tests so we also need prayer for immediate financial provision.

Thank you for praying. It’s hard to see it sometimes but I know God is with us. In the hard times we still say blessed be His name and in everything we give thanks. My father reminded me today of what the Bible says about Abraham in Romans – “Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed…” So I put my hope in Him who is able. (I write this to encourage myself and you also.)

PS: I miss blogging but my mind is focused elsewhere.
