Our wonderful community member brokenpole is in the hospital right now with a high fever and tenacious infection in his legs. Sparky (as he's also known) is an incredibly active and supportive member of our community, so I wanted to share the news so you can send him your good thoughts, prayers, messages etc. Sparky's wife, Sharon (aka smokinbeaver) is also a member of TuDiabetes, and I'm sure could also use our support right now.
Let's make a "Get Better" message wall in the discussion below...
We're related through Diabetes and when one of us are sick it's like we're family. So I pray for Brokenpole that he will recover soon and his family should know my prayers are with them.
Sending you prayers for strength and speedy recovery Sparky. Hope to see you back soon ;)
Sometimes, we must go right into the belly of the beast. We must do battle with the beast itself. I pray for Sparky to have the strength to surmount this challenge.
Get Better, Jon! May your next and best reward be a return home. I am sending well wishes and good karma your way.
Hang tough Sparky we need you back here!
Sparky, You are such a positive inspiration to us all. Praying for a speedy recovery.
God bless you and Sharon
brokenpole....Get well soon.
After all the things that have unfolded lately this must be discouraging. I wish Sparky a good recovery.
Sad to hear that you are not feeling well Sparky. Wishing and praying that the hospital staff take good care of you in every way you need in order for you to make a safe and speedy recovery.
Not to be cliche' but get well soon Sparky. Don't let them over do the O.J. and mashed potatos in the hospital meals. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
