Please Pray for Abraham

One of the guys who works at our barn was seriously injured today.  They were unloading round bales from a trailer, and a 900-lb. round bale fell on him.  He is in the ICU tonight with serious injuries - no broken bones, amazingly, but a punctured lung and a head injury.  He's young, and strong, and we're hoping for a full recovery, but he's not out of the woods yet.  His name is Abraham, and he has a wife and small children - please pray for him and his family.

If you board your horses, please remember that barn work is hard and dangerous and thank the guys (and gals) who do the work.  If you do your own barn work, please be careful.

  2. I will pray for him. I've known others who were killed by falling hay bales and I know the danger. May he recover safely--and yes, it pays to be careful. I did know a woman who, feeding her goats, just as I feed my horses, was killed when she accidentally pulled the haystack down on top of her. May your young friend be OK.

  4. So sorry to hear this. Best wishes to Abraham for a speedy and complete recovery. May it comfort you to know that I made a complete recovery from a pneumothorx (collapsed lung), bruised heart and broken ribs when I was 34. I will pray for Abraham.

  7. Well wishes to Abraham.

    Watching someone drive a tractor off of a loading ramp scares the you know what out of me. If that thing should come off the ramp...I shutter to think about it. Barn work is very dangerous.

  10. Will do! Yes, things can happen so quickly...good for all of us to remember. A couple of weeks ago, we saw Life Flight land not far from our house. My husband thought maybe an injury at the nearby ranch poker ride, but it was a very well known, local guy who fell from a gooseneck hay trailer and landed on the hitch. Broke 9 ribs, and he's in his early 70's. He's going to be ok, but he's one sore puppy! I'm so glad your friend's young and going to be ok!

  13. Young and strong are both good things to have in his favor, but prayers to Abraham from Huey and me. I knew those big bales were heavy but half a ton? Yikes!
