An update…

First…I want to say thank you to everyone for the emails and comments and good wishes and prayers.  Those emails were a huge help in passing the endless hours, sitting in the waiting room waiting to hear news from the doctors.  Thank you all so much…for everything.  The blogging community is an amazing group of people and I consider myself lucky to be a part of it.

Now…an update…

My dad’s in the ICU, but he’s stable.  He’s awake and alert…talking and joking around.  He seems to be under the impression that the’s going to get in a wheelchair and go to work in three or four days.  The reality is that he’s going to be in the hospital for about three weeks and then in a rehabilitation hospital for about a month to rehab his legs.  He’s having surgery Monday for his arm and leg.  He needs rods and pins to fix all the bones.  Last night they gave him a morphine drip because he was in pain…and by the time we left the hospital he was feeling very happy and sleepy.

If you can…please keep the prayers coming…they seem to be working!


  1. Shana, We are praying!!! for you and your family!!! If their is anything we can do please let us know!!! HUGS!!!!


  2. Oh my gosh, I just saw this and the previous post. I hope he continues to get better and I will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. Your dad sounds like my grandma. She had open heart surgery and bounced back like a bouncy ball. She went nuts waiting to be able to go back to work.

    Many prayers for patience and a fast recovery for him! I’m so glad to hear he’s doing better!

  4. So glad for the positive update, it can’t be easy but it sounds like your dad’s attitude is awesome and it will help so much!

  5. Speedy recovery to your poppa. Hope he’s back on his feet soon. You must be so worried!
