So, at our last visit to the orthopedic surgeon, Randy talked to him about how much pain he is in when he wakes up in the morning in our bed. He told Randy that it could take up to and more than a full year for that problem to be resolved, but with a foam mattress or topper, he said that 100% of his patients with pelvic injuries get in bed sooner. So I was on the hunt for a foam mattress topper. I found one online for $150.00. Randy felt like we didn't have money for that right now, but when does he need it? When we have the money? No, he needs it now. So, what do I do? CALL MOM!!! His mom is lending us the money for this mattress topper!!! We got it yesterday and put it on the bed. We had a small one already on our bed, and my niece let us use hers also, but they weren't helping at all, so it was a leap of faith (and funds) to see if this was going to work. This morning when Randy woke up, he didn't grunt, he didn't limp and he said his back and pelvis were feeling pretty good!!!!!! I am so happy. Night time has been a real challenge for him. So, today I'm gonna call the doctor and see if he will write a prescription for it, so we can be reimbursed for it being medical supplies. This is going to make a world of difference for Randy and I'm so relieved!!!!
