I haven’t written since the first part of February, this is mostly because the increase in my health has been so slow and incremental, that I don’t really know what to say. I began with a Chiropractor in early Feb, and saw some immediate progress. Then I reverted in the way of pain, so we added acupuncture to the mix. This has single-handedly helped more than any other treatment so far. I can’t say I understand exactly what acupuncture is doing, but I know it has helped immensely (and quickly) to restore my energy and relieve the pain that I was experiencing. I am not pain free yet, but most days I don’t notice it very often. I am very thankful. I have begun to exercise again, finding swimming, as a kind of non-impact cardio workout, to be very helpful along with some pilates. The doc did say I could try and start running again, but essentially to not run hard or fast nor go up or down hills; I suppose my back is just a bit to fragile still for that. We’ll see.
Jamie and the kids are well. Junio has begun soccer this spring, which is great for him. Annabelle and Junio continue to enjoy being in school. Lily is in preschool two mornings a week as well.
This has been a low-key, sort of ‘under the radar’, season for us. We celebrated Annabelle’s 6th birthday at the end of Feb, our 7th anniversary two weeks later, and my 32nd birthday a week and a half ago. We are now at the point where we are contemplating the future, and what God would have us do from here. Please pray with us as we evaluate all the options.
Thanks for reading. Jeremy
