OT Prayers for my husband

My husband has been layed off since last August. He recently started semi-truck driving school. He was to take the final test on Friday. Today when he was getting out of the truck he slipped on something and fell, hitting squarely on his back. He did not go to the emergency room right away, instead he filled out an accident report and finished his paperwork and then came home. I told him to go get himself checked out. He just called and said that the doctor thinks he has a compression fracture and possibly bruised lungs. If he has blood in his lungs, then he will have to stay the night. I feel so badly for him. He was looking forward to passing his driving test and finally getting a job. (He had one promised to him that he could start next Monday.) So I would appreciate your prayers that everything will be okay. Thanks, Marle

(((marle and mr marle)))
Prayers headed your way. He must be so disappointed, so many people seem to be having a tough time getting work in this economy.
You know what marle? I worked a long, tedious day today, about 12 hours plus, and I figured out it wasn't even enough to pay my lawyer for an hour. Just gotta love retail!
I wish you both the best, hopefully his lungs are just fine.

Broken ribs and a compression fracture of a vertebrae in his back. No bending, no lifting for 7 weeks. I guess this is just not our year Thanks for the prayers. Hugs, Marle

Been there... Done that...

I know how that feels to be close to getting a new job and have something physical happen to delay it. Hopefully, he won't. I am praying for your spouse.

Maybe if he explains what happened they will hold him a job?

And if not, maybe his HP has something else in mind for him.

I'm praying anyway, Marle, that something very good and special comes your way.

You know Ann, I am thinking the same thing. If he had taken the truck driving job, it would have meant going on the road, not something that I really wanted for him. This way he can stay on unemployment since he still has 8 more weeks. Maybe find something better during that time. He says that he is still taking the test Friday Hugs, Marle

Still sending you and hubby hugs and prayers. I hate it for him....he's got some really painful injuries.

I'm glad he still has 8 weeks of unemployment and I feel sure that something good will come from all of this.

Hugs and prayers!

I am so sorry to hear about this. It has been a tough year for you guys and I am praying that things will take a swing in a better direction soon. It's times like this that I remind myself that HP might be taking care of me even when it looks like he's not....I remind myself that maybe I'm being protected from something even worse from happening - something that I couldn't/wouldn't recover from. With all of that said - it doesn't keep me from getting my bottom lip sticking out far enough for fireflies to land on.

Hope that he heals quickly. I can only imagine how sore he must be feeling.

Lots of love - Donna
