Our son-in-law, Michael, was working May 26th on a construction site when a circular saw malfunctioned and badly cut his left thigh. Michael had just started with this construction crew on the previous Monday after several months of sporadic work. After the accident, he had to be transported to a hospital and then undergo emergency surgery to repair the wound. While his leg escaped damage to the major arteries, ligaments, bone and joints, it was still deeply gashed.
Because his job in construction requires him to stand, bend and move, the injury to his leg will prevent him from working for some time. The surgeon told him he could not walk on it for two weeks and then he has to start physical therapy which could last up to six more weeks. Michael is understandably anxious about not being able to work but coming back too soon could delay his overall recovery and reinjure his leg.
Meanwhile, he still has mounting bills to pay and another baby on the way. We are asking any of our friends and family who would join us to contribute and help lessen the financial burden that Michael and our daughter, Gabrielle, face in this time of physical healing.
Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, Michael did not have medical insurance at the time of the accident. We are trying to raise as much money as possible to help defray his medical expenses as well as help in their regular monthly expenses while Michael recovers. The medical expenses are expected to be very high because of the ambulance transport and emergency surgery.
Thank you so much for prayerfully considering how and how much to contribute to Michael. Blessings on you all.
Michael and Micah Burgess
