I worked construction for many years and hard hats were the norm. But, a 14' steel beam...that is impossible to stop. Sure hope he pulls through this with flying colors.

We pray that Tom will have a complete physical healing, that God's angels will surround him and his family and give them strength during this difficult time. We pray that God will give wisdom to the doctors as they work to restore Tom's health.
