Prayer request for Walt

Our brother, Walt, an occasional poster on the YY forums, has let us know that he took a tumble from a ladder onto a cement floor. The ball of his femur was jammed into his hip socket, shattering it. I was not clear on what was shattered, his hip or his femur. He was moved from Grand Junction, Colorado, to Denver, Colorado, because the surgeon in Grand Junction admitted that he lacks the skills to administer the proper care. Walt's wife is unable to be at his side.

If you would, please pray that our Father will make a way for Walt's wife to journey to him, and that the surgeons will be able to patch him up as good as new.

Thank you all.

Richard

Yes, it most definitely HURTS. I spent 45 mins Thurs crying like a baby after they did an ultra sound on my liver & gall bladder a couple of hours after I got out of recovery (I did some damage to my organs in the fall my balls are now all red full of the draining blood - scared the heck out of me till the nurse told me why )

The femur went through the pelvis shattering the pelvis, my wife described the x-ray as an shattered egg with broken bits all over the place
They said the surgery should be 2-3 hours - ended up being 6

My wife is feeling guilty because she can't come visit me (it's 4+ hours away)

Thanks for the prayers

Ouch - quite the ordeal there Walt! I'm praying for a quick recovery for you :)

Although, you have reminded me why I don't go on ladders

Walt, that sounds absolutely horrible! It's painful even to read about it ... please keep us posted because your updates help us to be more vigilant and specific in our prayers for you! How long is the expected recovery time from this type of injury? YHWH bless you!!

I broke my leg once Walt, and that was painful - but man I think you have won the prize! It's always the odd accidents - my friends son fell off his bike in the back garden and did a similar thing to his elbow (shattered) the other week. He had just come back from snowboarding at the local artificial slope...

Praying it gets better from here up - I am sure it will! Glad you managed to get the operation all sorted out :)
