Please pray for my daughter today.
Myself | May 20, 2014 | Myself

Posted on 05/20/2014 3:40:20 AM PDT by thackney

Saturday morning my daughter Caitlin was thrown from her horse. She landed badly on hard ground breaking her right thumb and her left shoulder. The top of the humerus is broken off and twisted behind.

The surgery is scheduled for noon central time. It is expected to be a day surgery.

With God's help, she and all of us will get through this quickly. She is in good spirits. She is a tough barrel racer, but she is only 13.

God Bless you all for your prayers.

I do understand. As a whipper-in for a fox hunt, I took a number of falls. Fortunately, my worst was a sprained AC joint. I never broke a bone.
No doubt that this minor setback will not break her spirit, and she will soon be back in the saddle.
My prayers for her quick return.

Yikes! Scary fall - I've had a few myself (hunter and 3-day), surgery as well, they had to basically reattach my right little finger (it works fine).

Kids heal fast, we'll pray for the surgeon and that the Great Physician guide his hands.

I know how you are feeling as It happened to my daughter when she was 15. A horse reared and flipped backward with my daughter in the seat. Dr’s said her pelvis looked like she went thru a car window at 60 miles and hour. The operation was 7 hours. she was fitted with a metal (internal) brace that the adjustment screws stuck out of her front and rear. One full year in recovery. Next , when she was 29 and training for the olympics in she was thrown into a post and after being Air transported to Philly had to get “jump started” on the copter. She spent eight months in rehab.
Today she is 32 and still trains for the olympics. However, she is in her final year of medical school and wants to be her own MD.
Once into horses, always into horses.!

Father, you are a God of restoration. I lift Caitlin to You and marvel at the daughter You have fearfully and wonderfully made. I thank You for the destiny you have spoken over her life, and I thank You that You are faithful to complete what you have begun in her. Lord, use this for Your glory and instill in her a healing so complete that even the doctors will see Your light inside of her. Your will be loosed on earth as it is in heaven, and praise be to Your mighty name and Your Christ. Amen.

Almighty Father, please guide Caitlin's surgeons that they may help heal her and make her whole. Send Your Angels to watch over her and guard her from all evil, and take care of all that she and her family need, letting them know You are in control, and Your Will shall be done. I ask this in the Holy Name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Amen.

Don't worry Dad, God's got your back.

For sure you have my prayer but be reassured, kids at that age recover quickly. I remember an ER doc who said that all they had to do was to put things back in alignment and stand back. Still will need bracing but a body in good condition at that age should do fine. Still, God Bless!

Adding my prayers for a fast and uneventful recovery.

Unfortunately, injuries are a hazard of the trade. It’s never a case of ‘’if’’ but always a case of ‘’when’’. I hope she bounces back mentally/emotionally without any leftovers.

Gotta jump back on the horse!
