Update from a question asked a few days ago...

I asked for prayer a few days ago because I broke my arm and cracked the other at work and have been growing increasingly frustrated at the rate of healing that has taken place. Well, I ran into a doctor that has a plane at the airport where I work, and I described the procedure done on my arm and asked how long I'm looking at recovery. Sometimes a person just needs a little reassurance! Anyway, he told me anywhere from three to six months, and since it hasn't been quite two months since I fell, IT REALLY HELPED.

I would like to thank everyone who sent up prayers on my behalf. They have helped a LOT.

  • Anon, whether prayer did anything or not is beside the point. I believe in a God Who answers prayer, and only He would know how things would've turned out WITHOUT the prayer. Either way, it's a much needed psychological boost that I was sorely needing and HAVE BEEN NEEDING FOR SOME TIME.

    Again, I express appreciation to those who DID and HAVE BEEN praying for me. For those of you who didn't, like eeyoreplus4 said, this post wasn't for you.

  • Yay!!! Thank You Jesus!!!

    I am so happy that He gave you some encouragement, so now you can see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Hang in there. And I will continue to keep a quick healing for you in my prayers : )

  • Thank you. I AM seeing some improvement, but until I talked to that doctor, I was incredibly frustrated and discouraged.

    I go back to office work in a week, and I'm looking forward to it! Can't refuel airplanes til I make a more full recovery, but typing and writing aren't problems as I've been blessed with the gift of being ambidextrous (can do things with both hands).

  • The best thing I've learned through becoming a practicing person is that we are commanded to have patience because through it we get exactly what we need. Glad you were able to get an answer that helped you. broken bones, fractures and things of that nature take time. A better prayer would be to ask God to heal you properly so that you won't experience any pain later. There is wisdom in the healing process of all injuries. take care
