My Father Was Hit By A Car in Taiwan

My father was hit by a car last month. He rides a motorcycle and, from what I understand, the car hit him and broke his shoulder. There is concern for internal injuries he may have sustained. While he was recovering in the hospital, he also threw up dark blood. He is back home now, resting.

I just heard about this from my sister-in-law, who had called Taiwan to say "hi." I almost never call, and write infrequently (I wish my parents had a computer).

Cathy and I spoke about it, and I am going to call tomorrow and ask my parents to move into the apartment next door. My dad is 71; a 71-year-old man should be able to take walks, chat with the neighbors, watch all the sports and news channels he wants and visit with his children. If they won't move to California, I'm going to arrange to visit Taiwan, but I would rather send tickets for mom and dad.

So, please, pray for my father, whom I love a great deal.


  1. Oh, Lee, I'm sorry to hear about your dad's injury. I'm glad he's doing better. And I hope they will move out here too. What a blessing to have that apartment to offer them!!

  2. My dad is quite resilient and is (apparently) not going to die from the injuries. That was what concerned me the most, I think.

    Unfortunately, he cannot move at this time. I'll be renting out the apartment in the mean time, but I would love to have them move back here!

    Thanks for the prayers!
