    Caudal epidural last week

    A little over a week ago the effects of the caudal epidural are really helping. The pain in my feet and shins is gone. Lumbar isn't perfect, but not bad:)

    Hey, Tim.

    I am very glad the injections have helped. Also, don't worry about being negative. You needed to vent and that is what we are here for.

    Yeah, I just wish people understood the power of a positive attitude. This is why I say I am truly envious of you. You and your wife seem to have seen that the only way out is hand in hand with the power of a positive mindset and faith in God to lead the way. The rest of it is just bumps in the road.

    I hope you understand that I mean envious in respectful way. Not jealous and certainly not antagonistic. I see how you and your wife have built such a strong bond and this was always my dream for my wife, but I can't seem to succeed. The years of suffering have been harder on her than me. I don't blame her for my failures, but I can't deny the failure I see and the damage it is causing my kids.

    I know God expects me to be their protector above all.

    God bless you
