Tree Crash

Well, this morning Eddie went out to go to work, it was just 3:50A.M. All of a sudden, I heard a aweful sound, scared me, and Coco both. She started growling, would not stop. Then, our car alarm started going off, I knew something had happened. I went running to the door, opened it, ran down the hallway, wearing nothing but my night shirt. As I got to the door that goes outside, there came Eddie. The parking space where we park at our apartment, has a tree beside it. Eddie said, he was standing beside the car, getting ready to open the car door, and he heard a loud crackling sound. He looked up, and saw the tree fixing to fall, of course, he was totally shocked. Bless his heart, he tried to run, but did not make it. The tree fell across our car, knocking Eddie to the pavement, and pinning him underneath. It fell on the next two cars beside Eddie's also. We called Eddie's mom to come take Eddie to the ER. He had scratches all over his back, and arm, and one on his head. He broke his right foot, he has a splint, and is on crutches. He is trying to get short term disability, because he cannot work right now. We have no car. The back windshield is totally gone, two huge dents on top of the car, and lots of scratches. I praise God for taking care of Eddie this morning, it could have been so much worse. That was our day!! Please keep us in your prayers, we both need them. Blessings and hugs to you all.

Praising the Lord that Eddie was not hurt worse...although it is bad enough!
~Praying for provision for you both, for finances and a car...I know when Jeff hit that deer it took awhile for the insurance to get the van fixed.
Did the tree fall because of a storm?
If you don't have insurance, maybe the landlord's property insurance will cover this damage.
Praying for you,
Love you~ Lisa

Oh Denise, how horrible! And how very scary. Will pray for Eddie, that he'll be able to get disability, and that he will heal quickly with relatively little pain.

Oh goodness, words fail me.

I don't always understand God's purposes in suffering, but I know He's there. Praying that the two of you will feel His presence especially near.

GOD BLESS.

That is amazing Denise! The Lord sure had His hand on Eddie, why that tree could have really hurt him.

Oh Denise! Praise the Lord that your lovebug is mostly all in one piece. I'm sorry about the car but, compared to losing Eddie, I guess losing the car is not such a thing. Praying for you guys. Love you, friend

Oh My Goodness~What an awful event. Thank God it was not worse for Eddie. I know it is bad enough but thankfully he was not knocked out or worse. The car took a terrible hit, but that can be replaced.
Praying for a prompt recovery for Eddie. The angels were watching over.
Take good care.
Blessings

I think it was a miracle that he didn't get hurt worse. I think he had a guardian angel for sure.
