    Please say an extra prayer for my dad if you can:) My dad fell yesterday and dislocated his ankle and broke his leg in two places. The ER sent him home in a splint and crutches, but he found out today from the primary dr and orthopedic dr that he will need surgery and pins, and he will have to be off of it for 8-12 weeks! He is a retired teacher and is a complete control freak, so this is a shock to his system. Please keep him in your thoughts as he goes to the dr on Monday and probably has the surgery this week! :unsure:

    Sending prayers your dad's way. I can't imagine staying off my leg for 8 to 12 weeks!

    Absolutely. And God does answer prayers.

    When my Dad was in his 60's he fell off his motorcycle and broke his femur (and 3 ribs and his collar bone!). He broke the ball off of the top of the bone and cracked it lengthwise. After surgery with many bolts, screws, and wire, and a few months of physical therapy, he was back to his old tricks. Although he did have a time getting through security at the airport!

    Prayers your way!

    My dad once fell off the roof as he was shoveling it. He too was active and took up reading!

    Sending prayers your way and I am sorry he has to go through this. It will be hard to stay off it for 8 weeks. My mom recently had surgery on her wrist and got the pins put in. She is still recuperating.
