Wednesday Wreckage...Lord Help Me!

Thursday, August 28, 2008

As if Monday just wasn't hard enough on us, Andrew got his hand mutilated in one of the machines at work last night. I praise God Almighty that He had one of His Angels watching out for him, because it could have torn off fingers or his hand. As it was he had to have stitches, and has a gaping wound beneath his right index finger that couldn't be stitched and will have to stay wrapped and dry to heal on its own.

Andrew feels that they may fire him over this, as it's his 4th injury and trip to the ER in 2 years. It wasn't his fault, just an accident. The machine threads caught the sandpaper he was using to smooth parts down with, and the sandpaper snagged his glove and in it went hand and all. He's very lucky because he was first back from first break and no one was there to help or turn off the machine, so he just kept pulling it until it came out. That's how he got so chewed up, but he couldn't wait, the machine was wrapping his hand and arm deeper in.

Please do say a prayer that he won't lose his job over this. If he does...well... I just have to believe God wants something better for us.

It's been a insanely tough week and it's not over yet! Thank you for letting me share this with you...writing helps, and knowing I have friends and even people who don't really know me praying for and just being there, helps even more.

Love and blessings to all, Pami xoxo

    Oh my gosh Pami, that is awful news but thank God it was not worse. I'm so sorry this happened to you guys.

    I firmly believe God has a plan for each one of us. He will carry you through this.

    Yesterday I kept getting an ERROR message when I tried to answer your blog. emoticon Glad his hand wasn't much worse. My brother and my son (both Gemini men) have had their hands smashed. My brother had a rock fall on his in the coal mine and really messed it up. My son had a metal tank fall on his and had to have 3 surgeries and a law suit. emoticon

    Oh Pami. I feel so badly for Andres and you. The stress on both of you must be terrific. I will pray for Andrew's healing and for the powers that be to re-examine their machine's safety issues. I am in agreement with Christi's beautiful prayer. emoticon

    May I add you to the CCED's team prayer list?
    We all love you - and would love to pray for you.
    Thanks for taking the time to post.
    Father - I lift up Pami and Andrew, they are walking through the fire right now, and we know that You walk with them. They are walking through the dark valley right now, and we know that YOU comfort them. Lord, please pour out the oil and the wine, pour out the healing balm in their hearts, on Pami's body and on Andrew's hand.
    Give them the peace that passes understanding,
    Keep their hearts and minds on Christ Jesus - not the circumstances,
    Encourage them with your love, your joy, your wisdom,
    Draw them closer to each other and closer to You,
    In Jesus' name,
    ~Christi from CCED

    Corporations must learn that people like your DH aren't hamburger and take a hard look at safety factors which they should implement. People aren't machine parts to be replaced at the corporation's convenience.

    Certainly saying my prayers that your DH's company will be compassionate human beings!
