We have spent most of the summer trying to get Pamela’s shoulder issues worked out.  Pamela received her injury on the shopping battlefield—-trying on clothes.  Since that ill-fated shopping spree, she has re-injured it many times, thus the diligent search for the right medical procedure to fix it.  Technically, she has an enlarged “capsule” (socket) that allows her arm to slip out of joint easily – thus causing a tear and stretching of  ligaments and tendons, etc.  Her shoulders are weak anyway because the socket is more shallow than most folks’.  She tried therapy at the beginning of the summer, with no measurable results.  So, after a month of insurance red tape, she is slated to have surgery this Friday, 10:45 A.M., at The Woodlands Hermann Memorial hospital.

Pamela has had 6 previous surgeries (sinus surgeries), so I’m not particularly nervous about her “going under the knife”.  But this time, she will be going back to PCC 3 weeks after the surgery, and if there is one thing I have learned from her 2 prior years at school, it is that she WILL NOT TAKE CARE OF HERSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  So, I am a little nervous about sending her back to Florida in such a needy condition.  I will have to trust the Lord (and put in a few words to some of her more trustworthy friends at PCC) to encourage her to do her PT and not overdo at school.

Please pray for Pamela, her Dr., and the rest of us this Friday.  She is a bright jewel in our family, and we want the best for her.  This is going to be painful, and while she has an extremely high pain tolerance, I know she will be hurting for awhile. 

Have a blessed day!

    I sent out a prayer request to the family last night.  I know you are concerned but just remember, young people are so resilient!  Be glad this is happening now and not 10-15 years from now.    The photo you posted is such a pretty one! 

  3. I’ll be there with y’all—not that there’s anything i can do, seeing as how surgical knife-wielding is not my particular brand of mango, but maybe i can sing her to sleep or something. 🙂
