Battle With Pain

I wanted to write a little bit to let you know that I am working on recovery from some pretty mean arm pain. I do good at times but at others I have to rely on the methods that I am learning. I am applying cold packs and alternating with hot packs. I am also learning to use a ten's unit device to control pain. I am not able to do much work at all so I am now writing with one hand and today I went on a walk to help keep the movement that I have left in my arm; I don't want it to totally freeze up. We are looking into inexpensive insurance so that I can see a specialist. For now when the pain gets too much I am resorting to the medicine that was prescribed by the ER doctor. I have taken off of piano again which is hard but I will do anything to get better. We are also looking into a therapy that we have heard about. I will let you know how that turns out.

The kids are learning some home economics with their homeschool teacher this week and having fun at it. That's what we decided would be a great addition to the homeschooling. God sent us just what we needed in our sweet teacher. I thank the Lord daily for the blessing she has been to us!
