    Default Huge Jingles needed for Horse Show dad

    Please spare a jingle and a prayer for my dad. He was taken to the hospital Monday nite with a high fever and high blood pressure. After blood cultures it was determined that he has a massive blood infection that they believe has it's origins in his implanted dialysis port. He is in surgery right now to have the port removed. This is very risky since anesthesia in an immune compromised person is always scary, also because the port runs near his heart and any clot could be fatal, also because he will be without a port and I don't know how he will get his dialysis. Very impatiently waiting for word.........

    THis is my horse show daddy, that sat at IHSA shows in Feb in the midwest with never a complaint and funded my lifelong dream of bringing a broodmare over from Germany. He is a decorated veteran who served his country proudly with honor and is much much beloved by two small children (mine) who just want to know if their "daps" is coming home soon.

    THanks guys!

    Oh my - big jingles from here. Take care of yourself, too. It sounds as though they will need support.

    Jingles. Hope he recovers quickly. (((hugs)))
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...
