Prayer thread for Mrs. Dono (Update in #189 - She's back!)
Little House on Unaka | June 13, 2009 | don-o

Posted on 06/13/2009 12:43:54 PM PDT by don-o

Mrs Don-o wrecked on her bike this morning and has broken bones in both her arms plus a broken left elbow. She will have surgery tomorrow for the elbow.

I left her in good spirits, after she was given some pain medication.

As often happens, we meet angels all along the way - from the folks to stopped at the accident to render assistance and contact me - to the EMT's who transported her - to the wonderful staff at our medical center.

Your prayers and pings are requested.

The odd thing about this is that our Ben (see tag) has bought his first motorcycle and we were, of course, concerned for his safety. I figured when the dreaded call came, it would be about him, not her.

She will shoot me for this - maybe I can get it pulled before she gets back on.

But, her first question to the ortho doc was would she be able to internet? We’re thinking - probably so. Doc said that she should have pretty good mobility. The breaks in the forearm were not bad ones. And he did say that she would be able to use her elbow. Surprised me.

Not much yet, Rob. I was gonna look at some of it, assuming it's free stream again. Maybe later. I so have two nephews who went (again). They have prospered well enough to rent an RV this time. Been interesting to follow all the drug busts out on the interstate. Our local boys are "on the job" I guess.

Prayers for Mrs Don-o’s successful surgery tomorrow, and any that may be required for the arms’ broken bones. Terrible thing to happen. Thank God for those pain killers.

How fortunate those angels came your way. My son had a bike accident last month and the passers-by and ambulance-hospital crews restored his faith in the goodness of people.

What a bad break, Mrs. Don-o, and I don't mean to be punny. I hope you have a fast recovery. I really enjoy your posts....I watch for them, as a matter of fact.

I had a broken ankle a couple years ago and all I could think of was "thank God I can still freep!".

Use your nose, if you must, LOL!

Good cheer and prayers,

Leni

You and the missus are some of FR’s finest folks.

And you are on the front line of the fight for the unborn—we appreciate all of the Notre Dame/Obama threads.

All things happen for good for those that love God(Romans 8:28). The spill may have been a surprise and a shock, but not to our Heavenly Father, who has His reasons. I am thankful that no clavicles or head injuries were involved.

Mrs. Don-O is still the bionic woman! Tell her we are praying for quick healing for her and for strength for you, don-o.

You are absolutely right. No head trauma save a fat upper lip. Her helmet worked to keep her noggin off the concrete. Knees and back not injured at all. No internal injury. Wrists and fingers all OK.

She was riding on the sidewalk, so no motorists were involved. Plus, this happened before Stupid has his way with our health care provision.

We count all blessings.

Now, I need to get back over there. Thanks to all who have or will reply of even pray for us w/o posting.
