James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, is recovering after breaking several bones when he fell from a horse over the weekend.
According to a release, the 75-year-old Dobson was on vacation in Montana when he fell from the horse and broke his collar bone, shoulder blade and several ribs.
“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,” wrote his daughter Danae Dobson in a weekend statement on the web page for Family Talk, Dobson's radio show.
Dobson founded Colorado Springs-based Focus on the Family in 1977 and left in 2010. It is a Christian ministry whose books and radio broadcasts reach a worldwide audience. Soon after, he founded Family Talk, which he co-hosts with his son Ryan Dobson.
According to his son Ryan Dobson, Dobson was flying back to Colorado on Monday.
“I’ve been talking to him and he is in great spirits,” Ryan Dobson wrote on the Facebook page for Family Talk.
