    Tonight, about 9:30 my brother in law was getting ready to leave for work. He had my boat on the back of his truck. Somehow, the boat trailer came loose from the truck, and smashed into his big brick mailbox, knocking it over, and comming to rest on top of it. I am not sure about all the details, but somehow durring this accident Joe's foot was smashed. They took him to the emergancy room and his big toe, and the one next to it are just barely hanging on. They took him for x-ray's and said that if the bone was fine, they would just sew the toes back on. If the bone was crushed or broken, they would have to do surgery. Most recent update is that they checked to see when the last time he had eaten or drank anything, and told him not to, as they would be prepping him for surgery shortly.

    NEW UPDATE - The bones are crushed and an orthopedic surgen is determining the options. However he shouldn't loose any of his toes.

    With the love of the Brotherhood, and prayers for all, I am confident that the Lord will heal him and his foot as quickly as possible.

    Thank you in advance for your thoughts and prayers,

    Tony Farrar

    His name is Joe Brown. I know, original isn't it?

    Thank you for your kind thoughts. Even though it was an accident, I feel partly responsible as it IS my boat that did it. If he hadn't been taking my boat to work for him and his buddies to work on in the middle of the night, then it wouldn't have happened. Almost makes me wish we hadn't have even bought the dang thing. Don't know if it is damaged or not, too worried about Joe right now. We will check out the boat sometime tomorrow durring the daylight.

    I probably won't be on much tomorrow as I am not going to work. Can't sleep due to worry, waiting, and praying.

    Yes Mike,

    Our God IS an AWESOME God and he can heal Joe's foot totally and completely. His healing powers are not gone, and no longer available. They are called upon daily, and he responds. In the name of Jesus, Joe's foot will be healed, and good as new.

    UPDATE - The doctor removed some of the bone from his toes, and removed the toe nail of the big toe. Got the toes sewed back on. So far so good. He's at home and making jokes about it so that is good too.

    Sorry to hear about the accident. We'll be praying for you and your family. I was going to say that sometimes those loose bone fragments will drift back to the main bone and fuse in place, but then I got to the post about them operating to remove them.
