Dear friends,
Your prayers will be really appreciated.
I broke my foot several days ago. During the coming week it should become clear how much time the treatment will take. Also, it may be decided even as early as tomorrow if the surgery will be needed. A wheel chair is also on the picture, and it does not seem clear if that "method of transportation" can be avoided. Additionally, I really see that I need to keep working and I cannot take time off from work now.

There are a couple of other items, which may be worsened by my mobility challenges.

Would you please be so kind to pray for solution of problems. May God bless you abundantly. Thank you very much.

Lord have mercy!

in the past, when I've broken my foot, I never needed surgery, just Ace bandages and duct tape! Sorry to learn of such a bad accident, and my thoguhts are with you as well.

Lord have mercy!

As someone who broke his foot last summer and could not walk or work for 8 months (and who now walks with a likely permanent limp from the resulting arthritis and is unable to run), I understand your pain and worry. I will keep you in my prayers.

Lord have mercy!

What else can I say but "OUCH!!!"?  I hope your job is a sit-down job already, since this will make your workplace adjustment much easier.

Thank you very much! May God bless you in everything! May His help will be always with you all.

Actually, the appointment went well. An operation and a wheel chair went out of the picture. Furthermore, what I found miracleous, it became okay to put pressure on this foot in an air cast. I should be able to limit precautions to this air cast and (beyond any of my hopes) get rid of crutches soon. Yes, my job is a sit-down job, but I have a lot of meetings, some of them at other parts of the office, some at other offices. So that progress helps a lot!

I see that your prayers definetely assisted for this change. I really appreciate that. May Jesus Christ help you in everything. Glory be to God! Thank you again, friends.
