Got a phone call late Sunday night from K saying that Mom was taking Dad to the hospital. My first thought was heart attack, but K said no. She explained that they had gone to buy a kayak and Dad was putting it up on top of the van to get it home. He heard/felt something tear in his right (dominate) arm. The x-rays came out negative for a break, but he has an appointment Tuesday morning with an orthopedic surgeon to assess the tear.
Edited to add :: He does need surgery and will have the operation done on Friday, July 25.
