Today we woke to an icy, snowy, slushy mess. The boys enjoyed a two hour late start due to the weather and Tyler had a 'snow day' with no classes at his college. I received a text from him at 7am:

The rest of the day was a whirlwind with visiting my Dad at the hospital, haircut for Drew, a nail appointment for me, drinks and appetizer at Lucky's, moving furniture at my parents house... It was a little bit of everything kind of day. :)

prayers for my Dad

A week ago Sunday (9 days ago) our house was sound asleep at 11:30 at night when the phone rang. I jumped out of bed and answered the phone. It was my Mom. My Dad had fallen down the stairs at home. She had called for an ambulance and he was taken to a Trauma 1 hospital nearby.

My Dad had 8 broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken shoulder, a contusion on the hip... and is really banged up.

But he will be ok. It is going to be a very long road- but he WILL be ok!

He is still in the hospital, waiting for his chest tube to come out, working so hard in physical therapy, and trying to keep his pain under control.

I am so proud of him! He has gone through so much this past week and is working so incredibly hard in his recovery.

Prayers and all my love to you Dad.
