Hoping and Praying
Today Elder Anthony was so miserable. We worked this morning distributing sheets and having a meeting. We had an appointment with a physician assistant to the specialist for spin surgery. We have exhausted the VA and he is as bad no he is worse than he was in August 2015 when he went into the VA. The Physician Assistant looked at the VA MRI. He said, that he had major disc bulge and disc protrusion smashing the nerves in his back. He ordered new x-rays and MRI. He could see that Elder Anthony was in major pain. He gave him a oral steroid prescription to try and reign in the pain. He is sending him to a pain doctor. On May 12 he will see the back specialist. We went to get the x-ray and by a miracle they had an opening for the MRI so we have those two test done and we will had another miracle and got an appointment to see the doctor to manage the pain on Wednesday morning. This is a bad week for doctors but we have got to get some help.
