I'm asking for some prayers for my hubby. He was trimming a large limb off of a tree, on a ladder 15 ft. up and the limb hit him and knocked him off the ladder. He had presence of mind to throw the chain saw out of the way and landed so hard on his shoulder, he bounced. We are so fortunate that someone we hired to grind up the tree stumps was there and saw it all. He called 9-1-1 and then got me. I would have not found him for at least an hour. I was cooking dinner.
We spent 10 hours in the ER last night, they thought he had an aorta aneurysm, but it was fine. He fractured his shoulder and his wrist, bruised his ribs and there is something wrong in his upper thigh/groin area. He's in a lot of pain and they keep doing x-rays/CAT scans to see if his pelvis is fractured. It keeps coming back fine, but the doctors say he's in way too much pain to be just the ligament. So, more tests are being done. They admitted him and he'll be there for a day or two, we hope. I just hope we find what's wrong, so they can get on with fixing him, rather than giving him loads of morphine.
He is so very lucky (making ME very lucky) that he's going to be fine. Sore, for sure, but alive.
