Doug Oldham falls, breaks back
Doug Oldham, a noted Inspirational soloist of the 1970s who helped popularize many of Bill and Gloria Gaither’s compositions (and collaborated with them on a few), recently fell and broke his back. Via Mark Lowry’s Tumblr, Oldham’s daughter states:
It’s been 8 days since my dad fell and broke his back. We are still waiting for the surgery to take place. It is scheduled now for Wednesday. He is at UVA getting wonderful care, however their hesitation has been that the surgery is very intense and risky. This is especially true for dad because of his age and health. His odds are not great but God’s odds are awesome!
Update (7/21/10): Doug Oldham has passed away.
