Needles, Needles! Everywhere!

No Work and No Play

Usually when someone takes the day off, they get to play. Not Chad! Nope. Instead he got to  suffer in pain all day. :( My patience for this is growing weary. The VA has to figure out what is going on because it seems obvious that it's more than just a muscle spasm. Tomorrow will be two weeks he's been dealing with this, with very little relief.

I've been trying to get him to consider acupuncture for a little bit now and it seemed everywhere we turned, people were suggesting it as well. Today he agreed to give it a shot. It's a bit on the expensive side but it will be worth it if it gives him some relief from this constant pain and spasms.

He feels better than when he went in but neither of us think it will last long. He is still sore but for the moment - no spasms. We have another appointment for Monday because he likely will be unable to work then either. It's worth a shot right?

I'm exhausted. I'm trying to focus on the positives and remember life could be so much worse and our struggles could be so much more difficult. It's just when I see my husband in constant pain and unable to enjoy the gift of life he's been given.. well it's just hard.

Thank you to everyone for checking in and always offering so much love and support!
