Hubby vs. The Roof

Did you know that we have an amazing God?

For those who don't know, Curt fell off a porch roof yesterday afternoon while at work, resulting in a trip to the ER, EKG's, x-rays, IV, etc. While at first the doctors thought he broke a rib (due to the pain Curt had when breathing), they were actually fine. He didn't even have any head, neck, or back injuries. Not even bruising! He did, however, dislocate and break his left wrist.

Again, he fell off a roof and walked away with a broken wrist.

I don't know what you think, but that could only be God. There happened to be a dirt pile at the bottom of this roof, and Curt happened to land in that pile instead of the ground or the cement. While he did end up with a face, ears, and mouth full of dirt...and a sensitive reaction to the opiates and other drugs they put in his IV (mental note: drugs in Hubby=vomiting)...and saying some funny stuff to us while come out of the conscious sedation...I'm pretty sure he'll take all that instead of what could have happened!

So, please join us in praying for Curt's wrist surgery that is scheduled for today at 5pm. Pray that no trauma patients show up (which would bump his surgery back to tonight or tomorrow). Pray that he doesn't react to the meds like he did last night in the hospital. And pray that this surgery will fix everything and give a positive prognosis for him. If you know us, you know that we don't sit still very long - we run, bike, swim, hit baseballs in the yard with our kids almost every night, ride a motorcycle...and it will probably be difficult to do all that for a little while. :(

Thank you!

We do have an amazing God! Mike fell off a roof once too. He had a little more than a wrist injury, but still amazing that he's here today. We'll have to get the guys together sometime so they can swap roof stories. :-) So glad your man is okay. Praise the Lord.

Oops, that last comment was from me, Diane. Don't know what I did.

SO sorry to read about his accident, but thrilled that he is okay (for the most part) and that God kept him safe! We are sending him our prayers and warm thoughts!

Oh my goodness! Curt!!! But we do have an amazing God, and it does not surprise me that he only has a broken wrist. God is amazing and does amazing miracles for His people. Lova ya Curt!
