Seems we are at a bad time now. My husband fell down the steps this weekend. Broke his leg in 4 places. On our way to the specialist to hear whether he needs a operation.

Prayers you have. Hope he can follow Drs orders and keep that leg up. I know it will be hard to keep him occupied and not let him go stir-crazy.

Thank you for all the prayers - we will need it. Surgery came out worse than expected. He is home but needs to stay in bed or sit with leg raised for 8 weeks. The leg must be raised and are not allowed to be vertical as they had to take away a lot of flesh to get to the splinters to mend it. Apparently the blood flow prevents mending and therefor he needs to keep the leg lifted. There is a lot of pain - lol I think the positive side will be I am going to loose a lot of weight running up and down. Jokes aside a fact is I am sure prayer will pull as through.

It sounds so very painful - hope that surgery isn't needed - but if it is - that it helps him heal faster.

Thank you - dr saw him this morning and he was immediately admitted. They are working on reducing the swelling as dr will operate tonight. He is going to put in plates and screws.

Sorry to 'hear' about your bad luck, hope things will turn out right. My hubby tore the ligaments in his foot/ankle last week by just climbing into the car, seems we are getting old and doing silly things to hurt our bodies. Not so young and agile any more, hugs S*
