This started on Tuesday, Sept 5th when dad fell.   We thought he broke his shoulder as that is what he complained about.  Mom and I (diana) brought him to the Alexandria ER where they checked everything and the X-ray came back fine so we thought good we should be outta here soon.   Then the Dr. came in with the CT results and things started happening really fast.  He has a fractured skull with bleeding in some spots is what we were told and they were going to Lifeflight him to St. Cloud.  That was very hard to watch but we knew it was best.  Mom and I headed down and David, Jenni and Spencer were not far behind.    Dad made it safely to St. Cloud where we met him in the ER.  At that point he was wrestles and they sent him up to ICU.   They hooked him up to all these tubes and tried to make him somewhat sedated but not all the way as he has a head injury.  He has a team of Drs, neurologist, nurses, and pharmacists figuring out what the plan is and the next steps.
