“It’s as bad as it can possibly be without being crushed.”

broken-leg

The quote above is from my dad’s doctor today.

My dad is 78 and somehow tripped on a rug in the house and apparently fell as perfectly wrong as you can fall onto a hard tile floor.  He broke his nose and fractured a bone in his lower right leg.  He was at the emergency room the other night and had X-rays done, of course.  Today he got the news from his the doc.  He has to be immobile 23 out of every 24 hours for a while.  I don’t know how long.

Looks like I’ll be spending my week off for Thanksgiving down there relieving Mom as much as I can.

Poor dude.
