This morning while bringing in the newspaper K's dad somehow fell and broke his hip. The paramedics took him to the local satellite hospital where they x-rayed him and eased his pain, but at his request transferred him to the big downtown Foat Wuth hospital. He is resting comfortably tonight, but isn't scheduled for surgery until tomorrow. While he isn't a young man...he's 76...he's in otherwise good health, and his prognosis is good.
K called me this morning at work obviously upset/concerned and asked if I could take off and be with her and her mom. Of course I did, and chauffeured them to the downtown hospital. The orthopedic floor he is on specializes in hip and knee replacement/repair, and the docs are very well thought of. Everyone is relieved he is in such highly capable hands.
If you would, please, say a prayer for his surgery to be successful and his recovery quick.
