Dad on the mend again ... We hope for good this time!!

A little update on my dad.  As many of you that have followed me for sometime know that August 2012 my dad was driving along one moment and then the next thing he remembers is a flash and waking up to someone trying to pull his door open.  Dad was in his F250 and a lady came straight at his truck from the oncoming traffic.  She hit him at such force she flipped his truck.  Fast forward to present time, dad has been having tremendous pain in his leg that had the broken femur that they put a rod in to replace and stabilize the bone that was broke (the largest bone in your body). 


Yesterday he went back to the hospital to get his rod taken out since it didn't connect like it was suppose to.  They went back in replaced his rod with a larger rode in length and width.  It's going to be another 8 weeks of no weight on this leg.  But thank God this time he won't be hopping around on a broken foot on the other leg.

The surgery went well yesterday, a lot of pain but hopefully this will lead to him able to walk around with out being in constant pain.  Thank you for all the prayers and thoughts we appreciate it so much!

The old rod removed

We hope to have him home by Friday!  I'll keep you posted on his recovery.
Thank you again for your prayers & thoughts!
