Prayers for Grandpa

Jonathan's dad was hit by a car while bicycling on Tuesday and left on the side of the road unconscious with multiple fractures. (What kind of person could hit and leave another on the side of the road? It's beyond me.)

He's still in the hospital recuperating of course. Any prayers would be sincerely appreciated.

Update 5/15: he was hoping to come home today but now the doctors are saying "not this weekend." He still has his sense of humor, though. His mind is unharmed; "just" 10 broken ribs and broken right arm, shoulder, and clavicle.

Update 5/17: Dad is on new pain medication that doesn't leave him incapacitated with nausea. He walked around a little today and asked for his computer. (Boredom is a good sign.) Mom predicts he will be home by Wednesday.

Oh my!!! I will definitely add him to my prayers and to the fast for sick people. Our ward just got hit with a death of a 31 year old member and our Bishop decided we should fast for all the people in our ward who are going illness.

...And from what Dad can remember, the guy hit him on purpose.
