Richard Thompson fell and broke his hip. Surgery today.
Hello cartoon and comic fans. Nick Galifianakis here.
I'm trying to generate a tsunami of good thoughts for the only actual genius I know (I'm apologize to whoever else I just insulted) Richard Thompson.
RT's Parkinson's has made him less stable and he took quite a tumble yesterday - he broke his hip, which is being replaced at 3 pm today.
A joint replacement will get Richard up on his feet very quickly -screwing in a pin, which was briefly considered, would mean a much much longer convalescence whereas the joint replacement means he's up and rehabbing very quickly, very important considering he's already starting out from a compromised physical position.
Surgery will be followed by about 5 days in the hospital
Please send good thoughts his way. Now.
