"On behalf of my dad and our entire family, thank you so much for your concern and for your prayers!" -Danae Dobson
Over the weekend, renowned Christian family psychologist Dr. James Dobson, fell from a horse while riding this past weekend. Though he fractured and broke some bones, he is hospitalized in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.
An alert posted on the Family Talk website stated that "he suffered a fractured clavicle, a fractured scapula and several broken ribs. He is in good spirits." The family asked for prayer on his behalf. (Photo: CBN.com)
Below is a recent update from Dr. Dobson's daughter Danae:
Thank you for your caring messages for my dad, with assurance of your prayers. I am very pleased to report to you that his condition is stable and his spirits are good at this early stage in his recovery (he even ate a hamburger yesterday, just twenty-four hours after his accident).
Hospital tests revealed there is no internal bleeding or other complications, for which we are very grateful!
My dad will remain in the hospital a couple more days before returning home. He will no doubt be in a lot of discomfort in the coming weeks, and would covet your continued prayers as he moves toward a full recovery.
On behalf of my dad and our entire family, thank you so much for your concern and for your prayers!
Blessings to you,
