My dad is 85. He was patching the roof on one of his old cars and fell off the second rung of the ladder and was knocked out 2 days ago. His medic alert thing went off and he awoke to paramedics looking at his scalp. 12 stitches, the old fart says he fine. Glad he finally got one of those, i am 500 miles away and got a call right after the one to the paras. he is also on blood thinners and could have bled out.
I spend as much time as possible with my dad. Seems I always spend a week instead of a weekend there and thats OK.
