Pain dr. says

The pain doctor says he can do a temporary pain block on Andrea's facial trigeminal nerves on Thursday, Feb. 5. It's categorized as another "minor surgery", which we know are never minor and is supposed to last about a month, so that is long enough for her to get through the hyperbaric treatments which have caused the nerves in the face to be so painful. Her blood pressure has been really high the last few days, so we are to see her regular MDA doctor tomorrow. This is in addition to daily hyperbaric treatments, and M-W-F physical therapy so if feels like we are just running from hospital to hospital all day. We have faith in God for her healing.
Please keep praying all this works for Andrea. She's in quite a bit of pain.

Hi Andrea, I pray daily that your will get relief from the pain in your face. The pain block sounds hopeful, and hopefully will be "minor". I think about you every day knowing that you are in the hyperbaric chamber and hurting so badly. I'm counting down the days when you will be finished with it. Take care sweet girl. God is with you.
Love, Carolyn

Hi Luthringers and Martins,

I'm just now catching up on your posts. I'm sorry to hear about the ordeal Andrea and you all are going through. She has really been through the ringer and yet still your faith remains. I think about y'all all the time. Let me know if there's anything I can do. In the meantime, you're in my prayers.

We are still thinking of you and praying for you daily Andrea. You have been through so much and still your faith is strong. You are an example for all. Sure hope the pain doctors can do something for the awful neuralgia.
