Bernadette: I am so sorry to hear about your dh's accident. I know how painful a leg w/ both bones broken is so I can only imagine how painful the heal area is. If the pain meds he is on aren't working, then call and get him something stronger. There is no reason, as you know, to lay there in pain. I'm glad that you are able to take care of him and I am sure that he is also. Keep the foot elevated and try and keep ice on it. My dd is a paramedic. I was reading her your post and she went nuts. She suggested that if there is another hospital close, even w/in an hr, go and see someone there. She was shocked that they only gave him codine for his pain.
Lots of prayers coming your way and your dh's.
I am so sorry to hear your news. I will pray for less pain and for the swelling to go away so that he can have surgery. Continue to help each other.
Love and hugs,
