My father was recently in a pretty serious cycling accident. While out on his long Sunday ride he hit a patch of gravel going downhill around 30 mph. He ended up with lots of broken bones (collar bone, skull fracture, 5 ribs, and shoulder blade) and lots of road rash and bruises. Needless to say he is in serious pain and we don't expect him to get back out there anytime soon. He's been an avid tri-athlete for years, so it's really getting him down not being able to do any sort of exercise. I am beginning to worry about depression, so I was hoping to get some advice from other cyclists about anything I can do to lift his spirits.
Has anyone else experienced a similar situation? Are there good books or movies to get him motivated and back to his optimistic self? Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks in advance for your help!
