Posted on 12/01/2012 5:22:08 AM PST by trussell
As suggested, since so many freepers have been praying, I am sharing this in the open forum.
So many freepers have been praying for me for my back issues and my work issues. I finally have an update. I had my surgery on November 14th. I had a job interview on the 7th of November and my surgery for my back one week later. I was hired for the job but with all the background checks etc it was going to be the 3rd of December before the position could start.
I have had home health nurses, physical therapists and occupational therapists coming by several times a week since I was released on the 17th of November, 2 days later than normal. I have had troubles needing a cane and high doses of pain meds. I have finally been released to drive. My job definitely starts on Monday.
My doctor says I need a brace since I cant use my cane at work, so today I went to get my brace but was told by the supply complany that my insurance wont pay for the brace. The brace I need is about $140 as it has the metal and cinches and everything else required to help me accomplish my day. I am sick with tears after driving all the way to town on the last of my gas only to be told I cant get the brace I need. I would appreciate prayers for forgiveness for any words I might have said that were not Christian in nature and also for the bad thoughts I have towards the company who refused to check with my insurance and instead, checked with their main office who told them it wouldnt be covered when my insurance said it would be. I am fearful that if I go to work without the brace or the cane, I will give away my bodys weakness and be sent home. I am in need of so many prayers. Please....I couldnt possibly name them all as only God knows what all I need.
Even beginning the new job, the entire checks for the 6 weeks of work will be going to my landlord as I owe him rent since a year ago last July...so there will still be no funds. God is good...and I just keep praying that this job will lead to another and another until I get one that turns into a full-time, permanent.
Christmas will be family being together, a cake for Jesus birthday and dinner. We may get to put up the Christmas tree as part of getting in the spirit.
Oh, prayers please that the wakening of the nerves in my back will not cause too much discomfort in my legs...it is already starting to hurt in the right front thigh and the left lower leg as well as the extreme lower back just below the incision site. All prayers appreciated. God Bless you all and I wish for you all to have a very Merry Christmas. Trussell
Prayers up and away.
Thank you so much. Prayers are very much appreciated!
Curious,How did you make it through the pre employment process?
Prayers sent for you, Trussell! Hope you have a Merry Christmas, too!
When we obey the Lord, and act according to His will, forgiveness comes. Forgiveness is a by-product of salvation.
I pray that the Father has his way in your life.
God is good all of the time. Never doubt that the work He is producing in your life, is for your good and has a purpose.
Prayers that God would wrap His loving arms around you and your family.
I am praying for the healing of your back maladies and in the hope that your new job will be a blessing!
Hi Trussell....praying for you here - hang in there and trust the Lord.
Prayers for you, Trussell. May Our Lord heal your condition and keep you strong in spirit.
I borrowed one of my children’s biomed tens units...which is not an option now as I have open sores on my back from the surgical incisions. I also took high doses of pain meds that aren’t strong enough to help with the pain of the surgery. It was a very fast interview and I grit my teeth alot to hide the pain that wasn’t relieved from the tens unit.
I pray you are not from the area or the company I am going to be working for...I NEED this job.
Thank you so very much!! God Bless!
Prayers up! And I will include you in my Rosary today.
I realize you "need" the job but it sounds like you faked your way through the process and your employer will expect you do be in better shape than you really are. This is not a good position to have put either of you in.
Be thankful you have insurance and a landlord who would let you have months of 'free rent' that you can pay back. Many have neither.
You are always in my prayers! May God’s healing hand be upon you :)
Thank you so much. I was upset with myself yesterday for some thoughts and words that came from me. I have prayed for forgiveness, it’s so good to know that forgiveness is received. Yesterday was a very rough day.
Thank you and God Bless!
