Our Prayer

Lord God, you are the Creator of all living things. We know that you care for each and every precious life. Please watch over all those whom we love and care for. We pray for healing and relief to all pets who suffer from illness or poor living conditions. We also pray for those humans we have come to know through our associations in Blogville. Give them strength when they are weary, health when they are ill, and hope when they feel hopeless. And we especially pray for those furiends and friends we have listed here.

Deb From Three Little Pugs - Update (Friday Evening)

Please send POTP to Deb from the Three Little Pugs.  Her husband was rushed (via ambulance) to the hospital after being injured at work.  He is in stable condition and no other information is available at this time. She needs prayers to give her the confidence to drive in the dark to the hospital as well as prayers for healing for Butch.  Deb and her family have been through a lot lately and it will help her to know Blogville has her back!

UPDATE:  This is a serious injury.  Butch's back is broken in 2 places.  They had a bad night and are waiting on specialists.

UPDATE:  Butch is in a back brace, no surgery right now...but a lot of therapy. They removed the neck brace.  Deb is exhausted as you can well imagine.  It is a 2 hour drive from her home to the hospital.  Although we are uncertain about the status of the spinal cord (no information regarding that right now), those of us with no medical background think this sounds encouraging.  

Thursday Evening Update:  The details are still a bit sketchy but apparently there was some sort of apparatus weighing about 650 pounds that was not properly secured and it fell on Butch.  He had notified the supervisor that it did not appear to be properly secured so the employer was aware of a problem.  The medical expenses will be covered under Workman's Comp.  As for Butch's medical condition, he is receiving heavy pain medication.  They are still assessing his condition and the extent of the damage does not appear to be fully known.  When he is released from the hospital he will go to a skilled nursing facility. It is unknown if he can feel his limbs but there are medical concerns for sensations he would normally feel that he can't feel currently.  We want to honor his privacy concerning his medical condition and will leave it up to Deb as to what she later discloses.  Keep those thoughts and prayers coming.

Friday Morning Update:  Butch's abdomen is badly swollen and the doctors are very concerned (it is also very painful). They have now found a blockage in his stomach.  Deb is in route to the hospital now.  Extra POTP needed!  

Friday Evening Update:  The doctors continue to try and treat the intestinal blockage as well as a few other problems that have occurred.  The plan is that they are going to try and get Butch up with a walker tomorrow.  They still plan to transfer him to the local hospital on Monday (eliminating the 2 hour drive for Deb).  Deb is very grateful for all the thoughts, prayers, and support she is receiving from Blogville!

  11. Dear Deb and family
    We are so very sorry to read about Butch's accident. My goodness I often worried with him working on the highway with all the crazy drivers. I believe I recall that he was no longer on the highway.
    I hope by the time you read this Butch is doing better
