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.
