Dad Update

So, they didn't release him on Friday, actually a good thing! The x-ray that showed no broken hip made them look further and do a different scan that showed a muscle bleed on his right side. They gave a unit of blood last night to replace what he lost and he is now doing much, much better. They moved him to a rehab center today. It's one of the best in the area, has a pool, etc. He is looking forward to being home after this event. It's going to be a lot of work, but we think he's ready for it now. He was up walking on his own more today, with just a wheelchair behind him in case he needed it. Thank you for all of the prayers and thoughts, please keep them coming though.

Oh another thing they found out on Friday. His insurance covers 100 days in the rehab facility with no co-pay! I think after the 100 days, it's $100/day.
