my house!
Please keep my father in your prayers, sunday afternoon he was felling a large maple, when he tried to clear out his chaps got caught on a sapling and he fell, the full grown maple landed on him crushing his right lower leg, full tib/fib/ankle fracture into too many pieces to count, crushing his popliteal artery in the process, the worst part was he was trapped for over an hour in 6 degree weather screaming for help. Thank god a neighbor heard him and was able to come to his aid, it is a miracle he did not go into shock, it is a miracle he did not bleed out, it is a miracle it is just his leg. He has had 1 our of 4 surgeries at this point, he is going to need a large skin graft and will be in the hospital for at least 3 weeks, at this point they are trying to control the pain and keep his foot from being amputated, the worst is being a nurse and knowing what the odds are, and the possible infections, and the dangers of being in a hospital so long.... so please... send up a good thought or 2 if you get the chance.

Oh Jake that sucks but, as you pointed out it could have been worse. I think somebody was watching over him.
