Pierre Karl Péladeau will have to spend the next week or so in a Sherbrooke hospital after his bike accident, but doctors are saying he will make a full recovery.
Peladeau is being treated for multiple fractures including to his ribs, hip and collarbone after falling while cycling through Mont Orford park Sunday.
Doctors say it will take up to three months for those fractures to heal, and while that happens, he will have to get around in a wheelchair.
One of his shoulders is broken, so he won't be able to get around on crutches.
Yesterday, Julie Snyder brought the kids to see their father in hospital.
Snyder says on her Facebook page that wearing his helmet probably saved Peladeau's life, and she says one signs that he doing well is that he remembered her phone number.
Péladeau also suffered what's being described by doctors as a "mild" head injury, though he will not carry any lasting scars from it.
On his Facebook page Péladeau has thanked hospital staff for his care and says he hopes to be able to get back to work as the PQ MNA for St. Jerome as quickly as possible.
