Retirement can be back-breaking!

Dad fell getting out of bed last week, and yesterday when his back was not feeling any better he went to the doctor. X-rays show a small compression fracture, so he’s on light duty for the next couple of weeks with some happy pills.

He’s 87 and still going strong, so he’s mostly just pissed off about it. If y’all can spare a few prayers to get him on his feet faster, we’d appreciate it.

Thanks!

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    I hope your dad gets well soon.
    Political correctness is a liberal degrading of the freedom of speech. George Orwell's 1984 famously incorporated the notion of limiting thought through language (see Newspeak)." Meanwhile, the beatings will continue until morale improves around here.

    Thanks again, guys. Ortho doc put him in a brace for the next six weeks and he’s seeing a pain doc this week.

    He’s in good spirits, just annoyed.
