I now have to wear this brace for life and that my damage in my arms the C5, C6, and C7 is permanent. Doc told me I will have to deal with the pain for life and they can not do surgery on my shoulder.

January 19th, 2017

Please pray for us and share. This is or new post .Tomorrow I have an appointment with my VA advocate. Its to file for secondary issues. We are struggling with our finances trying to stay above water until we can be approved for va pension. I was approved for just enough that I don't have to barrow from my mother in law ,BASICLY WE RECIEVE A LITTLE LESS THEN WHAT SHE WAS GIVING US MONTHLY TO HELP US. So our finances haven't changed and we are robbing Sam to pay Harry if you know what I mean. We are continuing to need financial help at this time and we appreciate all of you who have given to our moveyourmountain.org .our new one is moveyourmountain,org/4861 I truly believe God will bless you for all who has given to our cause and we greatly thank you. I never thought id see the day I would be asking for financial as I am now. It is a depressing situation for me but I know I have to do what I have to do and swallow my pride. God bless you all my dear friends in Christ Jesus our lord.

( UPATE ON MY DOCS REPORT. )

Doc doesn't think I will get my right arm muscle back. The muscle has lost so much mass that its basically a peace of dead muscle floating in my arm. The left arm also is not to good and has atrafead but it is possible it may come back but there just not sure. I finally got the OK for another MRI on my knee and shoulder. Looks like a shoulder replacement will happen vary soon. will let you know. Please continjue to pray that the lord will supply all our financial needs as well. God has been so faithful thus far and I'm believing he will continue to. Diane and I also want to thank ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT dooring all this mess going on with us. God bless you all and we love you all in Christ name..

Joe's latest updates on surgery.

The doctor said that he has
C-5 C-6 C-7 palsy. They said they don't know if they will ever heal. They said no reflexes in either shoulder and no nerve responses on either arm. They recommend shoulder surgery and knee surgery. They put in an ortho consult and said there is nothing more they can do for him. They made a follow up appointment in six months. The neck surgery wasn't completely successful all this is complications from it. We will continue physical therapy for 3 weeks. He has MRI scheduled for shoulder, mid back and knee in the coming weeks. Thank you for your love and prayers.

( UPDATE )

I just got a call from the VA this morning and they said though I have tour shoulder muscles and legimants they wont let me see an orthopedic doc until my other doctor from my spine will release me. So I'm supposed tom do what ? suffer with torn muscles ect in my shoulder? This is really getting stressful with vary little income coming in. I don't know how we are going to survive .I am really ticked off right now and my wife is upset. Going outside to try and cool off. This is rediculous .
August 13th, 2016

( I NEED PRAYERS ) I am ready to explode ./stressed out.

I came home from the Docs Thursday and I didn't want to share with my facebook friends cause I thought I was complaining to much. However I woke up last night around 3 am with my heart racing and heavy breathing dew to I think was a panic attack ,I cant lie buy saying I'm not worried and I have given it all to the lord but these results I seem to get every time I go to the doctors is slowly getting to me. I just found out that I do have a slight tear in one disc, two herniated discs that are also bulging out a little with also some slight fractures in three bones that are between each disc and now I found out also I was born with a defective spine bones were the holes the nerves threw in my spine are oval instead of being round and are slowly closing and they said most likely they will get worse. I know God can heal me of all of this .I don't know if it was a panic attack but I DIDNT LIKE IT AT ALL. It is getting vary depressing going threw this and now my wife's kidnies are functioning now at only 29 present and only has a few weeks to get them back up or may have to go on dialyses . I know I sound like a broken record but YOU ALL are who I have to turn to pray for me . So please keep me and my wife in your prayers.
August 7th, 2016

We are devastated and getting weary. I am only posting this because we are desperate. and have no choice. I never thought I would ever be asking for financial help in my life. I always believed in working hard to take care of your family and I did till this happened. I will be filing for disability next month. That is when my Doc will make the determination to help us file .until we are approved we will have to live in faith the best way we can. My wife is about to break in tears and she has every wright to . I hate to see her cry.

( IMPORTANT ) VA UPDATE

Went to VA doc appointment and as of now I am un employable for 4 yes four more month's ..The VA doc says its probably permanent damage, the physical therapy doc said permanent yet the doc who did the surgery wont say it. He keeps telling us to go through more physical therapy .Now I'm herring people tell me I have a law suit but I don't want to go down that road if I have to. I AM SO FED UP WITH THIS.I was told I would be able to go back to work in less then 8 weeks and now its been3 months passed and now four more months and possibly permanent ,If that happens it will be at least another 6 months after that before even collecting anything and that's only if I'm approved the first time I apply. Time to get on my knees again. Have a blessed day.
June 27th, 2016

( AS OF NOW )

As of now I am still in pain. woke up with more pain then before in my arm ,feels like its getting weaker by the day.my neck though I did lose a lot of pain from when it was before the surgery I am getting different pain and some numbness in my neck were they cut.
SO THE WAY I SEE IT.,NO PAIN,NO GAIN. Its all just to remind me what I have gone through so that when ,NOT IF but when Jesus Christ heals me I will never forget what he has done for me and will have a great testimony when he's finished. Have a blessed day my friends. I WILL NEVER GIVE IN TO THAT OLD DEVIL. Why should I.I have the Lord JESUS on my side or should I really say IM ON HIS HA HA
June 24th, 2016

OK HERE IT IS. ( DOCS REPORT )

he gave me a note saying no work for another 6 weeks yet told me and my wife its going to take several months to heal and that my right arm may not heal at all. Why give me only a 6 weeks note? .I asked why cant you give me a note that says I can't work for a few months and he wouldn't give me an answer. Oh ya , more pills.Like I really need this right now.

My family and I went to visit with Joseph Greco and his beautiful wife Diane. We also took them $200.00 that was donated by all of you wonderful, kind, loving people. We will be taking more as soon as we receive it from Move Your Mountain.

Joseph was in good spirits, but was in a lot of pain. He wants me to let all of you that the healing process is going to be a very long and slow process. He is not able to use his arms or hands hardly at all and is not really able to type. Joseph said he will continue to post video updates on Facebook and then I can share them on here. Please keep Joseph and Diane in your prayers. They are having a hard time right now. Any donations are welcome and much needed. God Bless!

Diane Greco‎/Joe's Updates

 
I gave Joe his new meds. They only went up 5mgs on his muscle spasm med and it didn't seem to make a difference. It is so hard to watch him suffer and yell out and moan in pain for hours. He flounders around like a fish. My heart is really hurting. I'm in tears that He has to go thru this. I never thought it would take so long for him to feel even a little better.

We just unveiled Joes insicion. It looks about 8 1/2 inches long. He had his first shower. He still is very weak in his arms and has trouble walking. Doc says collar might be on up to 18 weeks. They went thru lots of layers. Then he will do physical therapy. We know God can heal it faster.

Don't look at picture if you are

Hello everybody

This is Diane Greco Josephs wife. He asked me to tell you all how much he appreciates your prayers. His neck surgery included 10 screws ,2 rods and plates and he was in the hospital for 5 days. It is going to be an uphill battle and he has to wear a neck collar for 3 months. Thank you for your prayers and those of you who are praying about helping us with our financial needs during his recovery time. He is in severe pain and I would like to request prayers of comfort for him. He will not be able to be on Facebook for a while so I will keep you updated. God Bless we love you all.

Joseph and Diane Greco are such a wonderful inspiration and asset to so many people here in Northern Nevada as well as around the US. Joseph and his beautiful wife provide wholesome Christian/Country music for those in need, at local events, local concerts, for the seniors in homes, and he has even donated a great deal of his time to help raise money for cancer patients, fire victims, car crash victims, and so many more.

Now is our chance to give back to this wonderful couple and to bless their lives the way they have blessed all of ours. 
Joseph is having to undergo neck surgery this coming April and is in need of some financial help with the everyday cost of living, electric, mortgage, car payment, food, etc. while Joseph is unable to perform due to his neck. 
Please do what you can for this amazing couple! They deserve it! No amount is too big or too small. Thank you all and God Bless!
