At around 7:00 this morning, I checked my cell phone messages. I had a call from a friend of my dad's. My dad is, along with this friend, on a three-week vacation in Europe. As soon as I heard his friend's voice, I knew that something was wrong. Why else would his friend call me?
My dad has been in a motorcycle accident. He's going to be OK, but his leg is broken in multiple places. I don't know the details; so far, I've only been able to exchange voice mails with the friend. From what I understand, it's not a compound fracture, but my dad did need surgery. It's totally unclear to me how the accident happened, how long he'll be in Germany, and when I'll get to talk to him.
What is up with this year?
