    Default Prayers appreciated!

    Leaving for Galena for a week tomorrow, On a mission trip, hoping to get some trapping and ptarmy hunting in, but we are there to be with the kids at GILA, and cut wood and paint and other such things. if ya could keep us in your prayers that would be great. this is about the time of year that suicides start happening. I went to the doctor today and found out that I have a hernia and an extra disk in my back which is why my back always hurts...that could be interesting while hauling logs outta the woods.....so, if it comes to your mind, there are some good thinks going on there. talk to ya after the 15th!

    FFG, if you are saying you have a herniated disc in your back then lifting anything is the wrong thing to do for a few "weeks"!
    There are many of us that thought we were young and invincible at your age and could work our way thru any challenge - we were all wrong! Rest that back, ice it down - do some exercises your Dr or a chiropractor or best a physical therapist recommends for the location of your bad disc. Trust me it will pay dividends later in life if you take better care now...
    Best of luck and you have my prayers for sure!

    I've got to agree with the old man hindsight thing. If I had thought about getting older, I have a wrist I wouldn't have trashed as much cod fishing at your age...

    Tell your mission team that you need to supervise this time so you can be available for future endeavors. My son pushed his back too far at your age and is still paying the price in his 30s.

    I know you have great intentions but dont ruin the rest of your life for this! Once you mess your back up it is NEVER the same. No matter how young you are. You would be very wise and Im sure your mission would understand to skip out on this one or just go for moral support.

    I have a hernia in my gut, a extra disk in my back. I cot wood one day and lifted more than I should have and that didn't go over well. spend the rest of the time painting and such things that won't kill me, then we started logging thursday and I lasted almost all day then I was lifting a green 10 foot log to stick in in the sled and I felt my hernia pop back out, so I finished loading the sled and then took that load back, took the machine back, the other guys leaded it except for a couple other small logs and then I quit for the rest of the trip. I'm having surgery soon
