I hate to bother you guys but since we are still locked out of church & the folks that are most familiar with my situations I decided to ask my Christian Buick buddies too. So look my MRI’s last week (mainly for my back) have shown that in addition to my torn up knees that the degeneration only my spine has sped and spread quickly (since we were rear ended at end of February) the previous MRI was only 5 months earlier just due to the increased pain but also gave them a good example from a short time frame to see how aggressive it is. Rotator cuffs are obviously screwed up today,my hernia has been causing all sorts of fun,the reattached bicep is mostly good but probably because everything else hurts so bad I don’t notice as much,both knees & wrists are torn up (had one wrist “fixed”). I fight EVERY night tossing & flipping and stuffing pillows till they compress and the stabbing night time pains start again. Since the guy ran into us the back has greatly reduced how long I can stand or even sit without squirming looking for a pain free position. I wake up totally exhausted every day from the nightly non stop injury tortures. That leads to being a very foggy existence during the day which has caused my memory to be next to nothing at only 56. With all the pain this tenses up my old neck injuries and when all that is wrecking my irritable bowel syndrome kicks in JUST to make sure I am trapped inside away from my car. It is just an endless circle of pain and sometimes during the day I just take my sleep meds to try and escape the pain (when fully exhausted from the fight I can get a couple hours of sleep). From our old family business that was always barely making it,missed paychecks and TERRIBLE health insurance I had to suck it up and work for decades as the wear & tear only increased, and I could not afford treatment back then with a wife with aggressive Stage 3 breast cancer & 3 young children. I cannot tell you how many times I have just thrown the towel in on my car. I feel good collecting parts like I am suddenly going to magically get better & install the parts that best fit it and sell the spares to have others like Gary to build me a motor but there is always other stuff around here I have to fixed plus take care of my 96 year old Mom (thank God she is still very healthy). We helped our daughter establish her dream of being a dance studio that she has worked tirelessly to make happen. I go up there and within 30 minutes the pain is so incredible my shirt is totally soaked with sweat and I don’t think there are many people who can understand or relate to the constant onslaught of 24/7 pain. Only thing currently in my control is losing weight to lift that stresser (over 40lbs to date! Yes!). That said I am still in a world of pain on all the decades of untreated injuries. Please pray that God will have mercy & my foggy brain will be able to maintain a consistent course instead of darting all over the place. With the load on me I cannot stay focused due to bouts of breath taking pain spikes or just being overwhelmed looking at all that needs done.So so much on 5 out of control acres,keeping daily driver cars on the road & lots of paperwork to keep up with which I constantly cannot remember where it is. It says in the Bible that the prayers of a righteous man availeth much so I greatly appreciate all and any prayers to help me shoulder this load. I have made endless lists (which I lose,memory is really screwed from a very minor stroke a few years ago) and I attempt to do one thing a day but with the endless needs for daytime sleep catch ups or feeling so terrible I can’t make it outside and standing for anything over a few minutes is brutal. Mainly I just need prayers please, I do not want to leave my wife behind with all my junk that I USE to fix up and repair to help our family or buy my Buick parts but not much of that can happen these days. I apologize for the lengthy list but just sharing so there can be some specific prayer requests as you are led. I appreciate all of you on here and cherish any prayers on these trials. Sincerely, Fritz P.S. Sorry for any typos or sentences not making any sense(another symptom of the stroke). I have to reread threads multiple times to catch things but this thread is way to long & I just want to sleep but pain drove mo out of bed at about 4am so not getting any relief there) please pray.
