Got a call this morning. My Dad has been in the house since friday when this ice storm blew in. Not one to be idle for long he went out today and was going to start chipping the ice off his driveway. He slipped and fell and broke his hip. They did surgery this evening and put a pin in and he will have to have physical therapy. The orthopedic surgeon told my Mom that they are working two shifts, night and day round the clock and that they have had a constant flow of people with broken bones for the last three days. The news has been reporting the fatalities, but this is the first I have heard of the amount of non fatal injuries. And that is just in one of several major hospitals in the area. They said they had done 4 hip surgeries today and several arm and leg surgeries. And they had surgeries scheduled all night long for the fourth night in a row.
