We’re heading off to the hospital, but I wanted to give a quick update.
Dad’s cranky…really cranky. The doctors keep trying to turn him to change his bed and check his spine…and he HATES it. It hurts…obviously…but it also makes him feel like he’s going to fall. Luckily, he’s still on the morphine drip and that helps a little. The good thing is that he’s started drinking water and juice. They told him he could have some food, but his mouth is still really swollen and painful, so he declined.
He’s having surgery tomorrow…to put pins and rods in his arm and leg. Once that is complete, he’ll start healing and, hopefully, his pain will decrease every day.
After the hospital kicked us out last night…they are very strict on visiting hours…I dragged my mom to the movies to see Breaking Dawn. Oh my…the sparkly vampires! We both loved the movie and it was just the two-hour escape from reality that we needed.
Also…some more good news…there is a video of the car that hit my dad. He was driving over the yellow lines on the side of the road…illegally…and also speeding. Unfortunately, they couldn’t see the license plate, but they did see the make and model of the car and the police have alerted some of the repair shops in the area to let them know what they are looking for. It’s still a long shot that they’ll find the guy…but at least we are now one step closer.
I’m hoping that we get some more good news when we get to the hospital. All your prayers and good wishes seem to be working…thank you so much…please keep them coming!
