However, he is alive to tell the tale.
Or he would if he was here
But he is in hospital.
He fell 2 stories inside the house while working in the attic space.
Like a trap door giving way, he fell through the ceiling.
Knocked out but recovered enough to get up and walk.
He has a broken rib, and 2 cracked cervical vertebrae.
And that is not to mention the black eye
Which makes him look like a drunk who fell down the stairs.
He is recovering but the exact form of treatment is still to be decided.
(Probably a neck brace and maybe also an upper torso brace.)
* He fell Tuesday June 29, 2010.
