it pours.  lol.  My dad emailed me Tuesday evening  saying he had twisted his ankle and had to struggle/hobble upstairs to call 911.  My brother is in Texas for work until Friday.  and of course my mom and I are in Japan until August 2.  Turns out dad fractured his ankle.  I texted my daughter, Jessica as soon as dad had  a room # at the hospital (and internet!).  Dad ended up having surgery to place pins to stabilize the fracture Wednesday around 1 p.m.  Jessica and I have been communicating by email ever since.  Dad will be in the hospital until Friday.  My brother gets back Friday evening.  She seems to be stepping up to the plate right now considering she is the only family member there right now. 

once again, thank goodness for smart phones and global data plans!

 Oh no!  I am so sorry he fractured his ankle.  It is a good chance for your daughter to pitch in - good for her!  I know you will be glad whenyour brother gets back.

Sorry to hear about your dad - must have been a pretty severe fracture to require pinning.  Pretty scary for him. Glad your dd is stepping upto the plate though.  It is always the case though isn"t it - seems like first it's one thing and on the heels of that another.  My grandmother always thought bad things happen in threes, so be careful.

People don't realize how easy it is to break their ankles.  I hope he heals quickly.
