An Update on my Dad

First of all thank you to everyone who has lifted my dad up in prayer. We had a chance to go up and see my dad in the hospital a couple of times yesterday.  Right now he needs prayer for his pain. He is in a LOT of pain!

Chest injuries are very painful and broken ribs are going to take a long time to heal.  Just think that every time you try to take a breath in you feel it....and it doesn't feel good! That is where he is at.  He still has his sense of humor and is cracking jokes left and right. The nursing staff is going to have fun with him as their patient! :)

He still doesn't remember what happened but he is remembering more about right before the accident...and other than that his memory is fine so we are so thankful for that.

My brother and Dominic went over to get the scooter from the tow place yesterday and also got his helmet. That helmet saved his life. It has scratches all over one side and a gouge out of the front. If he hadn't been wearing that helmet this would probably be a much different post.  Lets just say it has me convinced that anyone riding any type of motorcycle/scooter should always be wearing a helmet!!

We don't know at this point how long he will be in the hospital. We continue to covet your prayers for him, especially for his pain. Thank you so much for lifting him up!
