On August 17, 2017, while my daughter Cana and I were serving at a special needs camp, she fell asleep on the top bunk bed during rest time and fell out and suffered a compound fracture in her right arm. It was a long and difficult surgery, full of screws and plates in her precious limb, but with our faithful God holding her close and the many prayers of loved ones, she made it through the surgery well.
Shortly after arriving home, a great friend recommended Poised Pillows to us. Getting Cana propped properly was such a chore trying to support the back of her elbow and her wrist all at one time. We were just using multiple pillows to tuck her in. We were hopeful to try anything that would help with her comfort.
We received our Poised Pillows in the mail, and started using all of them right away (Armstrong & Bookend). Cana absolutely loves them and they are so much easier to manipulate and use than regular pillows. It's so great that they're so portable too. They got her through her seven hour hunter's safety class ten days after the break.
After two months of mounds of therapy and orthopedic appointments, the surgeon who told this precious girl in August that she likely wouldn’t play basketball until at least March and gave her little confidence that she would ever regain full use of her arm released her to do 100% of all of her normal activities. In his words while looking at her X-ray, “You can’t even tell where the breaks were.” Only God, you guys. Only God.
The stories of the way God provided us with key people at just the right times are amazing, and we will gladly testify to His provision all of our days.
We are also so grateful for Poised Pillows in providing the elevation and support needed to assist in the healing process. Thank you, Poised Pillows!
