Al's journey began Friday and Saturday August 11th and 12th, cutting down many dead trees on the property and sort of overdid it. By Monday he was feeling achy all over so he went to his chiropractor and again on Wednesday not getting better. He had chills one minute and sweat beads the next. Thursday he went to the ER, was admitted to the Hutchinson Hospital, and transferred to Abbott Northwestern Hospital in 10 hours time. While in the Hutchinson Hospital it was determined that he had high glucose levels, very high pulse, double pneumonia and his kidneys were shutting down. The following updates will tell the rest of the story.
