Home again, Home again

Massage by Gideon. Login Loose you may have an apprentice sooner than you thought. Who needs preschool. Fun evening!!

the procedure that they did a week ago Friday has brought me a great deal of relief and with relief comes a feeling of Joy and elation and the sense of freedom from the horrendous pain. I still have a moderate headache that consists of more of a dull pain but the pain that I can ignore most of the time. Unfortunately I way over did it this weekend I think. Monday will be have to be a day of rest. Sounds like a fun day to be doing taxes.

So now I need to set some personal limits and stick to them. But it sure has felt good to have energy and motivation and pain that I could manage.

Unfortunately with an increase in motivation and energy means that I have been doing more and more and the nerve damage that was done by an IV during my stay at Chelsea is now becoming more and more painful the more I use it, to the point of not being able to use it without a fair amount. so ice and heat for my arm until my next appointment. Luckily I have a brace that I am able to wear that helps remind me not to use it as much.

But overall I really am feeling much better and pray for that to continue of course. Thank you for all the prayers and please keep them coming because the headaches are not gone and the pain in my wrist and arm continue to increase. I will also find out tomorrow if they are terminating me from my job for being gone for so long or if they will extend my leave of absence. so continued prayers really are coveted.

May 31st

Quick update: My leave of absence has been extended through June 10th, my next set of appointments.

Heads up this is a woe is me post

It was a great week of relief! But I knew the end of that relief was coming. Headaches are back in full. My job will only be held through next Monday and HR is not telling me anything except that my insurance is good through the end of May for sure. However the procedures that they believe will help long term are scheduled for next month which means whatever insurance I go on May or may not cover the procedures. Limbo is such a hard place to be and it is the hardest place to trust that God has a plan for me. And on the midst of all this worrying my headache just gets worse. I do try to relax and trust that God is in control and then I panic. I’m just scared and in pain to boot. I just wish for once that my HR department would realize how much worse they are making my headaches. They have been pretty terrible through this whole process even forgetting to tell me I wouldn’t get paid without specific documents. I just wish they had been more helpful and more compassionate through it all. But such is life and once again I have let go and let God. Aaaagggghhhhh. In the end I just wish these headaches would go away.

Kristen Long: Praying for you Heather. You should get COBRA insurance to carry you through if your job ends but could also see if they can move up your treatment
Heather Loose Johnson: I don’t know if any of the procedures could get moved up? Is Cobra the same insurance or is it a whole new insurance with new deductibles. We finally reached our maximum out of pocket. I just don’t know much about cobra except that it is very expensive.
Lisa Maier Hutchinson: Usually it is the same insurance just you pay the whole bill your part plus company part. What are the FMLA Laws. I know with maternally leave they have to hold your job 6 months. But I’m not sure if that’s flma or government job rules. I heard an add on the radio about a study they are doing in an experimental medication for migraines I’ll have to see if I catch it again to get website. They pay for all tests and stuff
Heather Loose JohnsonFMLA ends for me on May 25th. Meaning they no longer have to keep my job for me. Beyond that HR is being very tight lipped.

Lisa Maier Hutchinson: Oh man. That’s rough. I’ll be praying for ya¬†Ok my prayer warrior friends. After time in prayer I have been given a specific prayer to pray while laying all of the other burdens at the foot of the cross. I/we are to pray for a continued leave of absence. So anytime my mind starts spiraling in the wrong direction this is what I will refocus my prayers.
