My Latest Medical Update

After suffering for 20 years with so much pain, the results are finally in and it took a new Surgeon to find out the cause of it all.
When I had my car accident in 1990 I received a strong blow that pushed me towards my car door. When this occurred I was rushed to the hospital by ambulance because they thought I had broken my neck. Due to the strong force in which the truck hit my car, I was thrown to my left shattering my door window and cracking at the same time my front window with my head. As I was thrown towards the door and the window I crushed my shoulder bone into my clavicle bone and then my clavicle bone crushed itself into my spine. This ripple effect damaged and took all those bones out of place leaving me in severe pain for the past 20 years. After complaining about this pain for so long a new Orthopedic surgeon finally found out why I have been in so much pain.
This next Thursday (March 4) at 7:30 am, I will be in the operating room to correct my entire shoulder joint. At the same time my surgeon will clean out all the arthritis on that shoulder, my shoulder and my rotator cuff will also be fixed and put in its proper place, relieving me from the pain on my arm and shoulder.
After I recuperate from this surgery I will then need vertebrates 3, 4, 5 & 6 cleaned out of all the arthritis spores that have clustered itself around the bone, I will then have cadaver bones installed with metal clamps in between those 4 vertebrates to alleviate the dreadful pain I am now suffering from. Instead of each vertebrate on my neck being close together, they are now 1 to 1/2 inch apart.
I also will be having an EMG done on my lower back after my surgery to find out if I have a pinched nerve on my lower back which is also caused by this accident. So many years of pain, tears and no sleep makes me want to sue the guy who caused all this once again. But I can't.
I put my life always in God's hands and He will navigate it as He pleases. Faith is my strength and I know He will see me through this hurdle once again as He has through all the others. Miracles do come true to those who believe and I believe in Him.
