Broken Arm Healed

Chris Boswell - 04/16/2010

I was out cutting tree limbs on Tuesday with a friend of mine with whom I do handyman work. I was standing on a ladder while cutting an 8-inch limb off of a willow tree. When I cut through the limb, it struck me in the right arm and pinned me between the tree limb and the ladder. I knew right away that with the force that the limb hit me that my arm was probably broken. Sure enough, from the outer bone of my arm was a two-inch-long bone protrusion. I decided to not tell my friend, as he is a United Methodist and would have me hauled off to the doctor's office in no time. I just kept working and claiming, "By His stripes I was healed!"

We worked for about two more hours and then we also moved a couple of recliners and a bed for an elderly woman. By the time I got home, my arm and hand were swollen and I could not close my hand. I grabbed an ice pack out of the freezer and sat down in my easychair. I put the ice pack on top of my arm and about two seconds later I felt the bone move back into place in my arm. Within a few minutes, all of the swelling also dissipated! Awesome!!!
