    A while back I asked prayer for my brother, who had been in a rollover accident after dozing off at the wheel.

    The injuries were much worse than they thought at first. My brother was complaining of still being in a lot of pain. They finally took a new set of Xrays, almost a month later! And they found he had no socket for his upper arm bone, his shoulder was shattered in many pieces, he had 8 broken ribs and two broken vertebra in his back!! So, it was off to see if he could be put back together again. They were able to find a surgeon that had done 20 reconstructions of shoulders, most Drs. do one maybe in their career. We are thankful his primary care Dr. knew of this surgeon.

    I have photos on Photobucket, if anyone wants to see the Xrays and the vehicle.

    It is a real miracle he is still alive. The Dr. said he had never seen such damage on a LIVING person.

    Please continue to pray for his recovery.

    Its amazing that thay much injury could have been missed!

    DH went to the ER once for what I thought was a broken wrist. The ER doc said it was not and did not even get xrays! A week later I dragged him back we got xrays and sure enough it was broken - in two places!! [​IMG]


    But, a totally trashed shoulder seems like a fairly easy find!

    Lord have mercy! He's lucky to be alive! Most vehicles don't do well in a roll over.

    So glad to read they took a look at him again instead of just dismissing his complaints. Healings!

    If you or your kin are a victim of any such construction accident, then contact a accident lawyer to get justice and compensation from the negligent construction company or any other negligent party involved.
