Father-in-law update

Thank you all so much for the prayers and kind words.

Once upon a time a neighbor of ours back up in Illinois told me, "Getting old is not for sissies!"  Whew.  If that isn't the truth...

My dear father-in-law is still in the hospital.  He ended up fracturing both the tip of his tail bone and his sacrum.  They think he went to sit on a chair, but the chair was never there.  He lost his balance and went straight down.

At any rate, depending on a couple of questions the family is waiting on, he MAY be able to go back to the assisted living facility since this facility accommodates "till end of life".  Pretty sad words to type.  They will be in to assess him tomorrow.  If not, he will go to the nursing home.

Alzheimer's has definitely taken a toll on him.

Thank you for the continued prayers!
