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. As many of you know, Monday, May 28, my dad was up in a tree trimming some branches and he fell out of the tree. He fell at least 30-35 feet. He landed on his right foot. He was transported by ambulance to Columbus first. They did some xrays and assessment and realized his injuries were beyond their capabilities. They gave us the option of him being transported to Tupelo or Jackson. The University Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson was chosen. He was flown there by helicopter. The xrays show that his right pelvis is broken, 2 burst lower vertebra, his tailbone is broken, 2 bones in his right leg below the knee and almost every bone in his right foot. Also 9 fractured ribs.
