Jamie finally got the diagnosis after his MRI last week.
Apparently, the thunking/cracking he has been experiencing in his shoulder is a "foreign object" about the size of an eraser tip, probably a broken off piece of cartilage or bone. The doctor expressed the idea that the chipping off of bone or cartilage could be a disease-related. He will ultimately have to have surgery again but the doctor really wants to get to the source of the problem so Jame will be seeing an orthopedist for a second opinion.
He is not allowed to work or use his right arm until this is figured out. So, we are taking a few steps backward. This is a bummer, but we know God is sovereign, and we are very glad to have some sort of diagnosis of the problem. Thank you for praying. Please continue to. I am confident God's hand is in this and He is growing us, and especially Jamie through such an uncomfortable time.
