Through no fault of his own, Tim was in a pretty serious forklift accident at work this morning. He was unloading skids from a truck when the truck began to roll away from the loading dock, with the front wheels of the forklift in the bed of the truck and the back wheels still inside the shop. As the truck continued to roll away from the building, the forklift was pulled out of the shop and came crashing down about six feet to the ground below- with Tim still sitting in it. Fortunately it landed straight and didn’t tip over or flip, but it did crash very hard.
Tim went to the emergency room to get checked out. They did a CT scan and they didn’t find any breaks, but he is pretty stiff and sore, and will likely be even more so in the days and weeks to come. We will be keeping an eye on him and watching for anything else to develop.
I’m so incredibly grateful that today didn’t go worse, because it really could have. When I walked through the door and saw him this evening, it really hit home that I could have lost him today and that was a tough thought to digest.
So please join me in praying for his healing over the next few weeks, that his pain will be minimal and his body will bounce back pretty quickly. In the meantime, we’ll be doing our best to make sure he stays comfortable.
