This is from my daughter about the journey my wife and I have gone through.
It’s been a year. A year since I left at ten o’clock at night to pick up my parents from the airport. It was a clear cool night. I wore a blue and green striped shirt.

Oh my goodness, Sam! Is it true, is she really better? I’ve prayed for you and your wife, prayed for her pain to go away, prayed for your own health to get strong, too. Selfish prayers really, just because I like having you in the world and thriving. Your voice is really needed, you do good work. There is nothing harder than watching those you love suffer, so this is good news indeed. Praise the Lord! What a miracle.
It is true! The CRPS is completely gone. She still struggles with Ehlers Danlos, which is also painful, but a different kind of pain, and a different struggle. But we are extremely thankful that the CRPS is gone!
I’m happy for your wife, you, and your family. Chronic pain is miserable, life sucking darkness. Every moment revolves around enduring pain. I know, my daughter knows nothing seems to exist outside of enduring pain, pretending to function for others.
What a relief. And thank the Lord a healing was found. Enjoy every moment.
Thank you! I’m so sorry for your daughter. Tough stuff.
I forwarded this info to my daughter…she cried because someone understood her pain…and her youngest son also suffers even more. I pray this will be a help for them… thank you.
I’m so sorry that your daughter and grandson are going through this. it is horrible.
If there is anything we can do, please let us know.
