My brother, Lee, could use an extra prayer this morning as he will be undergoing a very detailed surgery. My brother owns and operates his own trucking company and as he was strapping hay bales down for the haul one of them rolled off of the trailer. He tried to get out of the way & ducked but the bale hit him from behind and rolled off of him. A hay bale weighs anywhere from 1000-1500 pounds. He was airlifted out of the field to WF & then airlifted on to Fort Worth for surgery. His surgery was scheduled later so the correct support staff could be assembled for this delicate and detailed surgery. He has broken ribs, broken tailbone, broken left side of his pelvis, & the right socket of pelvis is shattered. He is slated for a 7 o'clock surgery, but of course he probably won't go in that early. His surgery is estimated to take 6 hours unless things are worse once they enter. If so he will have to have two surgeries. He can put ZERO weight on his right side for at least 3 months. He should go home in a week either with crutches or a wheelchair depending if he is able to support himself on his left side. Lee has a very high pain tolerance and it is very difficult to see him in such pain. Any extra prayers would be very much appreciated as he has a very long and painful road ahead of him. The doctors have said his recovery time will be 6-8 months.
I am blessed to be the wife of a great husband, Cody & the mother to a wonderful little boy, Lyndon. I have always been interested in design: 1st wanting to be a fashion designer, & then an interior decorator. I am neither, BUT do love to continually have projects at home & to give advice to family & friends when asked. Another passion of mine is children & I put that passion to work in my classroom as a 3rd grade reading teacher. It is amazing to see students 'enjoying' the learning process. I love to shop (bargains especially). I am always up for a challenge & strive for perfection. I love to spend time with my family & wish I would make more time for friends. I am truly blessed & have choose to use this blog as a way of keeping a scrapbook of Lyndon, share our day-to-day life with family, to express my love for design, & to nosey into other peoples' ideas. I love to look at others' blogs; it reminds me of my love of driving around looking at houses-only I get to peek inside now. I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
