Toby Temporarily Out of Action Due To Injury

Toby suffered a badly fractured pelvis in a fall at his home and is awaiting surgery.

Jacksonville, FL – May 14, 2012Toby Tobin badly broke his pelvis in a fall at his home in Palm Coast last Thursday and currently is awaiting surgery in the trauma center at Shands Hospital in Jacksonville.  Toby will not be able to update until sometime shortly after his surgery, which is scheduled for Tuesday. 

Toby would like to have gotten word out about his injury earlier, letting readers know why he has been unable to update the news on  Unfortunately, Toby has virtually no access to the Internet at the moment.

Toby asked me to express his thanks to those who already have sent their comments and prayers.  Although the recuperative process will be lengthy, he is looking forward to a near-complete recovery.  While Toby is recuperating, will be alive and well.

    In the words of the sergeant in the great tv series NYPDBlue, "be careful out there." This really applies to us senior citizens, and I wish Toby well in his upcoming surgery. Hips and pelvises are very fragile at our age.

    I am recovering from a broken pelvis also

    I did not need surgery but the recovery time is long. After 1 month I was able to walk with a walker and go back to work but just sit at my desk. Physical therapy is the key. I resisted but finally went- it makes a world of difference so go as soon as the doctor says it is okay.
