Thanks for all your prayers. He definitely has a fractured pelvis, meaning no walking for 4 weeks or so. They found another fracture in his clavicle (??) one by the neck and the other on his shoulder and a fractured wrist. Still not sure what they are going to do. The dr. originally thought that a special platform walker that allowed him to use his elbow to displace his foot weight might work, but now with that second fracture, he isn't sure anymore. Physical therapy is coming in tomorrow to work with him in moving around. We tried twice today to get him off the bed and the most we could get was both feet hanging over the side. That makes hubby worried. It is definitely going to cramp his style. The dr. could already tell that he is one to push the limits. But he told him, NO JOKING-he had to follow his orders or create a bigger problem than he could imagine. And he is backing down his meds--dr. wants him to feel when it hurts to do too much, so he won't push it. Smart man!
Again, we just thank God for his mercy. I shudder to think what could happen. Maybe now he'll stay off the roof, and doing things that aren't quite so smart. Why do guys think they are invincible?
