    Devastating accident

    Please pray for my brother-in-law and family. They're facing some serious hardship. He was in a car accident and had to be flown to a big city hospital. Among other injuries he has cracked vertebrae and injured/swollen spinal cord. The doctors feel confident he should walk again, but he isn't able to move his arms at all, and they worry it may be permanent. I'd never heard of a spine injury where the legs worked but the arms/hands were paralyzed, but I guess that's what's going on.

    On top of that, they farm. What limited insurance they have will max out, leaving them with huge medical bills. He's always been self employed in one form or another so there no disability insurance or anything like that. We're hoping and praying that he'll be able to regain the use of his arms. They're facing some difficult days, and can use all the prayer they can get. It's deja-vu for my sister. She lost her first husband to an accident 12 years ago. She's worked hard and made good choices in life, and doesn't deserve this. They have three young kids too.

    prayers sent sir.. it is not unusual for somebody to have a spinal injury where arms arent working and legs are.. the spinal cord is like a big phone cable with lots of little wires inside.. those little wires connect the different parts to the brain.. one becomes damaged or swollen it might stop working for a while, but when the swelling goes down, and the pressure of the injury leaves, the things start firing again... have hope, and pray sir..

    Thank you, everyone. I'll update if anything changes. They're all so happy that he's alive, but pretty freaked out about the paralysis. It's been less than a week though.

    On a related note, everyone wear your seat belts! My brother-in-law is one of those guys who doesn't like to wear a seat belt. Apparently it would have made a difference had he been wearing one. Focus on driving when you're behind the wheel, and wear your seat belt. Life can change in an instance.

    Father, I come to You to implore You to be with fatelk's brother-in-law and his family as they go about getting treated for his car injury. Father, they are a simply family that farm the earth and they are in need of help as his bills mount up. Father, please give him comfort and heal him. Please take all fears away from his family and show them the way back to health and good tidings through Your love and help. AMEN

    VERY sorry to read... This hits close to home. In 1993 that was me. Cracked T11 @ 10 plus three lowest ribs pulled from my spine at cartilage/ vertebrae. In and out YEARS of trouble continuing troubles today.

    Times have changed and Drs know and have more and better Equiptment and philosophies to better relieve the pain and speed recoveries associated.

    Prayers to Doctors hands and all those effected.

    Prayers sent! I spent 32 years farming with my dad, we were lucky as our farm was small and he had a good outside job. I hope that the family can weather the storm of medical issues and the darn bill chasers. Again, prayers sent.
