A Weekend Worry

Dad is going into the hospital on Monday. We are all pretty worried but feel that he will be in good shape soon and ready for deer season. He has an aneurysm somewhere around his stomach and thankfully, they are going to put in a stint instead of open surgery. He (we) expect him to spend a couple of days in the Oxford hospital.
Dad, of course, has already gone to camp for the weekend.
This is a pic of the trophy he received when we purchased the fmous Christmas Place. It is a Lifetime Sportsmans Award and if anyone on the planet deserves it; it is Hershel Howell.
His life has been dedicated to the outdoors and nature. Keep him in your prayers as he faces this operation on Monday.

I'll definitely keep a good thought for him. They can do wonders nowdays and people come through these sorts of operations with flying colors all the time.

Prayers for your dad Rex; With all the new technologies the doctors and hospitals have I'm sure he'll be back out hunting in no time. Best wishes for a speedy recovery Herschel. I'm sure the whitetails will wait on him.

He will certainly be in my prayers. My father went through the same and did just fine, but just the same it's always scary to have anything done, especially as we get older.
