We saw another specialist for Deon. This one says that he doesn’t think that its a torn cartilage but an issue with his muscles where they attach to the shoulder, as well as some tendinitis. He said that it would be another 3 to 6 months of healing, and that surgery would not help. He is just going to hurt for awhile, and that he’s going to be susceptible to re-injury from now on.

Deon called his work, and they have his job technically saved for him until the 21st of August, because of the paperwork he filled out when it first started, but after that he will be terminated because he’s not going to be able to come back at that point. We’re not angry, like he said, it’s just extremely bad timing is all. So we are officially back to me being the only one working while his body works out this issue to the point he can find another job.  Really bad timing, but we’ll live. I’m really nervous with the kids school and everything coming up, but I’m sure something will work out.

We’re going to try and see if we can sell his Nissan Pathfinder. While it is the one we actually own, it is a manual, and he can’t drive it anymore with his shoulder the way it is. I am going to try and get a picture and put an ad in the paper as well as craigslist. If we can sell it, maybe it will help us catch up on some of the bills I haven’t been able to fully keep up with the last two months with only my income.  Life is an adventure right…?

One thought on “Update..”

  1. You do such a good job staying on the bright side of things. You are very strong taking care of your whole family, MS aside. I hope you stay strong and that everything works out well for you and your family.
