Thank Goodness...God is GOOD

As some you know we have been waiting for a appt for Jim to see the neurosurgeon for a few weeks. I have called everyday to see if they happen to have a cancellation before his appt in a few weeks. Today they called and Guess What? After weeks of me calling and they saying sorry none yet...Today they called us at 4:55 and said they have one tomorrow morning at 10:25.
Most of you know I am moving rather slow from my surgery. But when I saw the name on the caller ID base I jumped up and ran..well I waddled really fast to that phone and yanked it up..
This is a big appt because Jim needs to go ahead and get the surgery on his back to relive the pain of the disc on the nerve root..and to clear up the bleed from the epidural that will hopefully help his BP go back to a normal range.
The sooner all this gets done..the sooner he can get back to work. I know this may sound really blunt. But in reality this is a necessity. We are not going to survive with him out of work. I have been really worried how we are going to make things work. It is no secret...Philip's medical bills are very expensive and my operations and treatments were very unexpected. But also I think we need as much normal as possible here in our family..and that starts with Jim back healthy and strong physically and mentally.
So tomorrow is a BIG day. I am so thrilled we were blessed with this earlier appt. I had all but given up calling every day.

That just might be the best news I've heard all day! Not that I had a bad day - it was good! But your news is GREAT and an answer to prayer!

Great news! Of course, by the time I'm reading this he's probably at the doctor's now. I'm anxious to hear how things go.
