Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. 

On Friday, October 26, Jack fell and broke his right hip. Surgery was performed without complications on Saturday morning. Once he had walked with a walker consistently, he was transported to a rehab facility in Florence. 

We will skip some details here...after several falls at rehab and some very difficult days, Jack returned to the hospital on Saturday, November 17.  After a CT scan it was determined that he had developed a hematoma in his hip joint and it was causing immense pain and restricting mobility.  The following days have been a roller coaster requiring emergency surgeries, days in the ICU, and a roller coaster of emotions. We hope to update the journal to allow you all access to what is going on here without the need for millions of texts.
