Update On My Dad's Situation

I know a lot of people are tuned in to Facebook for updates on my dad, but I just wanted to post an update here. He was taken into surgery yesterday, and faces a difficult road to recovery.  The good news is the only direction is forward.

For the next three months he'll have an antibiotic spacer inserted into the hip area that will cleanse the infection.  Following that time, provided the infection is entirely clear they will replace the hip.  That will mean that within a year he'll be rehabbed and walking again.  In the mean time he'll be dealing with pain and struggle of having no hip, and no ability to put weight on it. 

Genesis: 32:24-25 So Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him till daybreak. When the man saw that he could not overpower him, he touched the socket of Jacob's hip so that his hip was wrenched as he wrestled with the man.
