Dad Update

I talked with my mother twice this morning and she told me that my dad did in fact break his back (again!) and that he also has 5 broken ribs. He is doing OK because they were finally able to get his pain under control. At this point we don't know how long he will be in the hospital, but are *thinking* that he will be in for a few days and hopefully he will go to a rehab center where he can recouperate.

My mother is fine. She has Symphony this week, Saturday night is her last concert and then she is off for 6 weeks so she says she will take care of him.

Thanks for the prayers and concern. Life moves on!

Oh I'm so sorry to hear this! I can only imagine the pain. Hopefully they will keep that under control as he heals!

Praying even now for restored health.
