Nourished, er, rather, injured by the Word of God

One of our very good Elders was helping to unload boxes of copies of the Book of Mormon, and the corner of one of the boxes struck his left thigh a heavy blow.  
Like most young men, he brushed it off and continued working.
However, over the next several days, the thigh swelled and became very painful.  He apparently had bled in to the muscle, and is requiring some heavy pain medications.  To his chagrin, he has been ordered to inactivity for a week to allow some recovery.
I suppose one could be injured by less worthy objects, but the poor guy has been in a world of hurt.
We hope that your experiences with the Book of Mormon are more enjoyable.

Poor helpful elder! Luckily I only lift one Book of Mormon at a time.
