My guys



If you get a second today, I would really appreciate a quick prayer. Sweet Brody hurt his back...we think it's a herniated disc. About 4 years ago it felt the same way and that's what it was. He was out of work for 6 weeks getting physical therapy and epidural shots and did eventually get better without needing surgery. I am praying that will be the case again this time...but Brody is really hoping it won't take as long. He can drive and walk this time (last time he couldn't really stand up without feeling like he was going to die). Right now he can do a few things, but pretty much has to lay around on the floor all day. He feels helpless and frustrated that he can't work. Thankfully we do have insurance so it's not a matter of being able to pay the bills, but I'm sure as the sole provider for our family he is feeling some stress about that, too. He loves his job, loves the guys he works with, and misses being productive every day. He does so much for us...SO much. I'm realizing that now as I'm picking up his slack...good gravy he's a great husband!! OK...enough mushy stuff. We are meeting with the neurologist this afternoon and will find out what the next steps are for Brody's recovery. Please pray that things go well and that Brody is able to go back to work and feeling good soon. Thanks so much!!

Jill, I am just now reading this and am wondering how Brody is feeling? What did the doctor say? I hope his healing time is quick. Jose has some insane back issues and the doctor's he's seen wonder how he is able to walk! High pain tolerance? I have no idea. I jsut have a feeling I am going to have a husband in a wheelchair by the time he's 60! Hugs to you guys!
