    Default Could really use a few prayers

    Like the title says, I could use a few prayers for my dad. Last week my dad headed to Nashville -- where he is originally from -- for vacation, to visit his brothers and a bot of motorcycle riding.

    Sunday morning he was in an accident. He hit a culvert and it caused the bike to flip over on top of him.

    Right now he is in trauma at Vanderbilt Hospital. All of his ribs on the left side are broken and of course his lungs and heart took a hard hit. He's far from being out of the woods.

    I have been here since Tuesday morning. It really sucks being 700 miles from home like this. But please say a prayer for my dad. This is the guys that introduced me to camping, backpacking and enjoying the outdoors.

    Tuck, prayers headed your way and to heaven for your Dad and you! I'd offer you a place to stay, but I'm leaving town this morning to go visit my own father for Fathers Day in SC. Happens to be my mother's 75th birthday too. I suppose this is a reminder to cherish good parents if we've still got them.

    Rain, Thanks it means a lot. Dad is the greatest man I know and I miss talking to him. I called him last Saturday to wish him a happy 67th birthday, but only got his voice mail. He called me Sunday morning to let me know that he and my uncle were getting ready to head off on their bikes, but I had already left for work and got my voice mail. As I was listening to that voice mail, my uncle called to let me know of the accident.

    Prayers for your dad. I second the comment about Vanderbilt. He's at the best hospital in Nashville.

    Best wishes for you and your father. I hope he heals up fast.
    Don't take anything I say seriously... I certainly don't.
