Rumpke STINKS!!!

For 15 years my husband has worked for a waste company. He has done just about every position from driver to supervisor to overall supervisor. Right after I got pregnant with the kids he injured his back and had to have a series of procedures and physical therapy. Well he received a disability rating and the doctor said his back would never be the same. Recently he injured it again. Only because his company refused to follow the advice of the doctor that treated Chris and they had him moving over 200 lbs by himself. Anyway he hurt his back again and had to have more therapy and another procedure. Now the doctor restricted his CDL, commercial drivers liscense, and gave him a lifting restriction also. He cannot drive for more than 4 hours a day. Because of this they have cut him down to Part time. Apparently there is nothing we can do about it, other than pray.

Please pray that he will find another job that will support our family. He has worked for this company for so long that he does not have experience in anything else. Because he can no longer use his CDL, no one will hire him because of the 4 hour restriction we are very concerned for the future of our family. He will graduate with his bachelors degree in computer information systems in a couple of months but we still need to support our family. Please pray God will lead us where he wants us to be and that we will be strong enough to obey!!!

  3. Prayers are going up. I don't understand these companies. After 27 years at one company I also was done dirty. I am a substitute teach now, having more time with Mikayla and enjoying life. God always open a door after he closes one. Have faith. God is good and I know He will provide. Philippians 4:13
