Silver Linings

As many of you know, we've had a tough time of things lately. David had emergency back surgery the beginning of May and has been on disability since then. We recently discovered that he'll need more surgery.

Well, this morning he woke up in a great deal of pain. After calling our doctor's office to find out our doctor wasn't even in, we decided to take him to the Emergency Room. From there, we were shipped off to a neurosurgeon's office, who promptly told us they wouldn't work on David. We came back to the hospital to get him a new MRI (hoping to find the source of this new sudden pain), and we're told that our appointment for it had been canceled (even though they'd told us that morning that they'd hold the appointment for us).

So we come home hot and tired (AC isn't working in our car), David still in pain, and more than a little frustrated with the lack of communication with the various doctors we saw today.

So I prop myself in front of my computer, with a floor fan blowing on me full strength, and open up my Etsy Shop. First, I'm happy to see that one of my newly listed Pomegranate Soaps has sold. I finally relisted them last night after them being sold out for several weeks.

Then I start moving through my convos, and find out that the Pomegranate Soap Set that sold was also on the Front Page! Earcmra put this treasury together yesterday, and it made it to the Front Page today! It's a beautiful treasury, all about Pomegranates!

Then right after that, we found a message from a neurosurgeon at the University of Utah Hospital who is hopefully willing to work with us.

I also had some other wonderful convos that just brightened my day. So even when things look absolutely dismal, there is always that silver lining on those dark clouds!!!

I'm so glad I was able to help in some small way! I hope that things get worked out with the medical issues soon!

Wow -- they simply refused him care??? What is wrong with this world :(

It is a very beautiful treasury, to be sure -- and you know I love the pomegranate soap :)

I'm so sorry about your husband's back pain. :( I don't understand how physicians can refuse care to someone desperately needing relief from pain.

But wow ... awesome about your pomegranate soap and that fantastic front page! :)

Silver lining indeed, and so happy for you.
