Talked to my mom, my brother and my cousin tonight! Sounds like things are pretty good. The doctor asked if Dad had a four-leaf clover in his pocket because he was lucky. It was a "good break". He'll need three screws but should recover completely. My brother is staying through tomorrow. He'll call when he knows more. I'm feeling much more relieved now that I know more. My cousin said my uncle fell today AND her husband fell and slid down their front lawn several yards. It is awful out. Tomorrow is not supposed to be very nice farther north of here. We need winter to be done.
