Praise God - he only has an acute muscle strain/severe muscle injury. It's not good but it's not a broken rib or two, either. That was Aaron's main concern - when he heard that pop yesterday and the pain being as intense as it is, he was concerned he'd torn some ligaments and broken some ribs.
He's home today - resting. He can go back tomorrow doing "modified duties" so long as they don't include bending, twisting or lifting of any kind.
All I know is that with those restrictions, he'll either end up hurt worse or back home again because the man can't work without doing those three things. He also can't just sit and let someone else do the work. He has to jump in and help.
I'm curious to see how he drives. :)
Please pray for him...he is in a lot of pain and he really can't take any more time off from work right now. Please pray, especially, that we can sleep. He's having a tough time sleeping because of the pain and he is waking me up. Last night was tough and I don't think it's going to get easier for the next few days.
Couldn't have happened at a worse time for the shop...
On a much happier note:
We have been praying over the last several days for a little boy named Trey who fell into his family's swimming pool and has been fighting for his life at Harborview for almost a week now. Praise be to God - he has opened his eyes, he's laughing and talking and while he still has a long way to go, he's alive and able to communicate and recognize his family. What joy and rejoicing there is today!!!!!!!! Thank you, to all of you who have been praying. God definitely gave as we asked on this one. Yayyyyyyy!!!!
