Pain

Tricia tripped and fell this afternoon and tore up her hands and knees very badly. After a trip to the ER, she's home now but is in a lot of pain...the worst pain she's ever experienced, she says, which must be pretty bad. I know she'd appreciate your prayers, especially for her hands. We're trying to contact a physician right now to find out if there's anything else we can do to ease the pain.

Thanks.

Nate

Poor Tricia! I just left you a message on FB. I mentioned something for the inflammation/pain that helped me, but you can't use it while she has open cuts. For now: Ice, ice, ice!

I've fallen and really hurt myself a few times. It hurts like crazy and doesn't go away too fast, either. I feel so sorry for her!

(My son can empathize, too, since falling down a 12ft. waterfall last week!)

I'm praying for her.

GinnyBerry said...

I'm sure that she is in a lot of pain, and I'll pray for her. I hope the doctor can provide some type of topical pain reliever..

Penny Malley said...

That kind of injury hurts like a burn- VERY painful. Especially with all the nerve endings in your hands. She's being prayed for!

marcia said...

Praying for some relief for you tonight, Tricia! I can understand why this might feel like the worst pain, ever, even with all the things you have dealt with in your life! All of those nerve endings right at the skin surface are just raw now, and sending all sort of pain signals back to your brain! And that just HURTS! And everytime you even touch it gently, it just hurts all over again. Even the air, or a little breeze, hurts, I'll bet. Hopefully it will heal over very soon, and start to feel better. Will continue praying for some good rest tonight!

Missy said...

Poor Tricia! I am praying for her pain to cease!

Poor Tricia.

I hope that the pain is lessened soon and that her injuries heal quickly.

My2Girls said...

Nate, you KNOW we will ALL be PRAYING! This too will pass.

Staci said...

Oh, Goodness! Bless her heart! I have done that myself a couple of times and I know what she means about that kind of pain. It's hard to much without moving hands and knees. Poor girl. I am praying she gets some relief and can rest well tonight. So glad she didn't break anything!

Somebody Loved said...

Oh I can sympahize.

I am a klutz...
my hubby just teased me today.

'Maam how old were you when your broke your first hip'?

Its really not funny though.

I have taken some bad falls.

My ortho guy today said he could feel the chunk of bone that is loose and floating around by my knee.

I will pray for you Tricia.

I am so sorry. I know what it feels like.

anika said...

being a HUGE faller, skinner of knees, hands, and feet, bruiser of EVERY kind, I will most especially be praying for Tricia! And for YOU to continue to be patient, loving and compassionate, for in a day or two the pain can be so different, the "faller" may be more mobile but still in terrible... praying

blessedx3 said...

Oh no! :(
I'll keep her in my thoughts. Hopefully she can get something to help with the pain.

Sylvie said...

Dear Tricia, I am thinking of you...
I pray that you will feel better today.

dogsdontpurr said...

Oh I know that pain. There's no describing it. I've had 7 knee surgeries with several falls in between...while I was recovering. Horrible.

Hopefully your doctor will be able to prescribe something like Vicoden or Percoset....or at least a sleep aid. I think pain is always worse at night because you're just laying away thinking about it.

I'll be sending major prayers.
((Hugs))

Me and my Gurl said...

Bless her heart! Tricia is always in my prayers but I will say a very special prayer to ease the pain she is having, especially in her hands. Hopefully, the doctors can do something to help her more with the pain.

BrunetteKoala said...

Ouch!! Poor Tricia.

Praying for ya in the centre this morning.

Carolyn said...

Definitely praying. I agree that sometimes falling and scraping up your hands and knees (or elbows)can be extremely painful! Been there done that! I hope you feel better soon and can get some relief from the pain. You didn't break anything did you?

Hope to see you all next weekend.

Danine said...

Poor Tricia. Hopefully the pain will ease. Try not to put anything on the cuts with aloe in it, that can lead to infection if the cuts are open. Will keep her in our prayers (still).

Sarah said...

Praying for a very quick recovery and that the pain gets better quick....

Radar's Mom said...

You'd think poor Tricia was due for a break... I'll keep her in my heart and prayers, hoping the pain eases quickly.

btw - I love the bug hunting pictures. Being a pug person myself, I also love it when Meka sneaks into the pictures... makes for a funnier background.

Wilbanks World said...

Auntie M said...

Oh dear! Poor Tricia! I'll be praying. As someone who falls often, I know that pain. A combination of whiplash & being scrubbed down with sandpaper! Awful! I will be praying for relief from the aches & pains, cuts & bruises.

Carol said...

Try frozen bags of vegetables. Or cold anything. I hope she feels better soon but am glad she didn't have Curlilocks in her arms!

Momof2bz said...

Sorry to hear that Tricia feel and that she is on pain. I hope the Dr. can prescribe something to offer something that can help. Please tell Tricia that I am praying for her and hope she feels been very soon.

Amy said...

My goodness, that must have been quite a fall. Will be thinking of her and hope something can help her pain. Get better Tricia!

oh poor dear, I hope she is feeling better, for her to say anything at all like that is a call to concern.
peace to all your hearts.

Definitely cold packs. I'm so sorry. I'm a huge faller-downer myself. And Tricia's beautiful slim build means those knees don't have ANY padding at all!! Tricia I hope you feel better soon. Prayers rising.

So sorry for Tricia's pain. Praying for quick healing.

Candi said...

I had to come back to this post and say that something similar happened to me today. My right knee took the beating, though. Luckily, the skin isn't torn up too much, but my knee is pretty swollen.

A lady saw it and said something about my pride being hurt, but I think I was in too much shock to be concerned. Amazing how bad it can hurt! I'm sure by know you are healed, Tricia. But as soon as it happened today, I thought of you.
