    WHAT THIS THREAD IS FOR:

    This thread is exclusively for the request for good wishes, prayers, meditations, positive thoughts, etcetera. This is not a debate thread, not a discussion thread.

    You can put just a first name of a person with no other details or explain the circumstances with no names ... whatever you feel comfortable with so long as it follows general safety guidelines.

    This is not a remembrance thread, just a spot to "light a candle" for someone you want blessings for.

    Thanks for the prayers for Debbie - she has done better than any patient they've ever had!

    Please continue to pray for Marc, he is only starting his journey.

    Prayers for John, Kim, GN, JF.

    For Helen please, a friend and one of my students as are her two sons, Her husband came back from 6 months in Iraq and as we laughed at the time, they followed the trend and she become pregnant. Now at 23 weeks, the doctors have said there is something wrong and they will have to induce the baby now. Prayers and thoughts for the family at this very difficult time.

    After being here on MT for a while now, I know what a bunch of wonderful caring people you are. Yesterday I got a call from my brother. He is my brother, friend, MA Instructor, All around good guy. He had an accident at work yesterday and had his wrist crushed between a 275 gallon oil tank and a rock wall. He is undergoing surgery in a couple of hours to try and repair the damage and rebuild everything. If y'all could just remember him and his family (new wife 2 1/2 months ago) that everything will turn out all right for them I would appreciate it and I know he would as well.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    My very best wishes and empathy for your brother, Scott.

    When it comes to physical reconstruction the medical profession can do a great deal so, altho' it is best to be cautious when it comes to optimism, much can be achieved.

    Positive thoughts on the way.

    Please feel free to!

    As an update, he went into surgery about 2:30 and they don't expect to get out until at LEAST 5:30. His Radius bone in the forearm took the brunt of the force. It was caught between the rim of the oil tank and a large rock in the basement rock wall. Shattered from about an inch above the wrist up quite a way, I haven't seen the x-ray film, don't know if I want to really. Tweaked some bones right in the wrist itself as well.

    A couple of weeks before Christmas, no Insurance. He could use all the prayers he can get. If you don't believe in prayer, send some karma, thoughts, whatever you think or believe in.

    To help with maintaining a positive frame of mind on his injuries, feel free to tell him about my particular familiarity with internal metalwork.

    If you recall, I lost most of both forearm bones and a great deal of muscle mass (which they cut away to do the 'mechano' work). The job was crude by modern standards as they were the first ones to do it around here but it has served well enough over the years.

    The point being that you can recover. Maybe not all the way but good enough.
