I have been absent for a long time. When I last posted, I shared that I was going to have surgery on my shoulder that I had injured working. Unfortunately 6 days prior to the scheduled surgery Workers Comp decided to cut me completely off. The surgery did not happen, I lost my appeal. I still do not have complete use of my arm, along with the swelling,pain, and discoloration. It still hurts to type these words. I didn’t want to complain or vent publicly. So I have kept my problems from public view. I have fought to keep from speaking negatively, knowing that doing so would not help my situation, and would damage my witness. Through faith in Christ, prayers and good friends, I am hanging on. Still waiting and hoping for my shoulder and arm to be repaired. Grateful for God’s help and provision. I don’t know when I’ll write again, but I do miss you all and reading all of your wonderful posts.
