Hours later at the hospital after all the tests, they confirmed that he had 4-5 broken ribs and a broken scapula on the left side and a broken sternum. Bruised lungs too. He would be OK, but he was being admitted.
6 days later, he came home moving slower than usual but moving and home. Pictured is Johnny doctoring him. Rick has a smile from Johnny's good attention and from good pain meds:-)
Work is treating me well as I try to do for the kids what Rick usually does while still trying to work. With the help from some friends, it is going reasonably well. Consider me having tied a knot in my rope until my year end vacation starts on 12/17! Was the Christmas season not hectic enough without this happening?!?
Rick is already walking a lot and restless, so hopefully he'll continue a positive recovery and not be down for the count too long.
