The pain is so debilitating that he isn't able to sleep more than three or four hours at a time right now. Normally he could take some of the medication against the pain that they've given him, but because he has a colonoscopy/endoscopy tomorrow, they told him not to take it for three days as it affects the light anesthesia they will give him for the procedure.
So he's had to just endure the pain full force for three days. These are not easy days for him.
The good news is that he has a spot in the chronic pain clinic, beginning August 6th through August 10th. We are so grateful to the Lord for showing the way to this clinic, and for making a place for him there. We are hopeful.
Please, will you pray for all the doctors and specialists that he will see next week. May the Lord give them the ability to see what has been causing all this pain for so many years.
And pray for sleep for Caleb too.
Bless you all for standing with us with such love and care these days. We are thankful for that.
