Default Update on my brother

just talked to my Dad a little while ago and the news isn't great. The break in Scott's leg is no big deal its his knee that is the problem, in simple terms he broke his knee in three places the worst being a vertical break in the socket where the knee joins the leg. He is being transfered to Providence General hospital in Rhode Island this am and he will be having surgery tomorrow. He is in for a long haul ahead of him. He will heal but it will take time. The best news is that after his surgery he is coming home to Mom & Dad's house to reccooperate. 20 minute drive as opposed to 2hrs, Yipeee!!!
Thanks again for all your prayers and good wishes. Love, LisaK

OUCH! that does sound painful, I hope he doesn't suffer too much. What is his age range? (kid brother or grown-up?) Best wishes going out to him and your family Lisa!

Good Morning all! I just talked with my sister and got another update. Scott- he is my baby brother all of 40! was transfered to Rhode Island hospital yesterday afternoon, met with the surgeon, they pinned his heel and put him in traction with ice,right away --easing his pain somewhat, he has a morphine pump for the pain. The first major surgery most likely won't be until Monday because of severe swelling of the knee. His surgeon is highly skilled and comes highly recommended which is a huge relief for all of us. Its the waiting that is the hardest! Love, LisaK

Good Morning all! Talked with my brother yesterday, he sounded really good. Pain has eased tremendously since he has been put into traction. Didn't need the morphine last night. He is bored out of his mind just lying there, surgery is definatley on for Tuesday. Will keep you all updated. Thanks from all my family. Love LisaK
