A Broken Hip!

Grandpa McMurray fell and broke his hip on February 4th. I went to Idaho the next day, but had to return on the 7th. My sisters were all there, and gave him and mother lots of support. He was not able to have the surgery until the 10th because of various health problems, so he was in ICU for 6 days with his leg in a lot of pain, but he was such a trooper through it all! The surgery went very well yesterday, for which we are so grateful. Dr. Joe was amazing! I am returning today to help out again for a few days. He has a long road of recovery ahead of him, BUT I KNOW he CAN DO IT!!!
I loved this picture of Mom touching him so tenderly. I can only imagine all the thoughts going through her mind.

That is a very sweet picture of them, but kind of sad too! I'm glad he is doing okay, and hope he has a speedy recovery. Have a safe trip home from Burley today!
