    Default Jingles for Darren C.

    http://www.chronofhorse.com/article_landing/news


    Wishing him a speedy recovery from this latest episode.....I think he is a terrific rider and person. I will never forget when I was volunteering as XC ring steward at a Florida Horse Park rated show and he was super nice to me...esspecially when I asked him to go out of order since the class was running off schedule and he agreed, then the stupid late person shows up- demands to go and again, he was just gracious about it.
    There are many UL riders in our sport who are nicer than people know.

    I have been thinking the same exact thing since I read the article earlier.

    My guess is yes it was related to the tainted steriod injections. What makes it so bad is that when a person has a compromised immune system, things get really out of hand. MRSA is a very serious infection! I certainly send my jingles as this is a very serious situation for any human being to face!

    That is terrible - I've been reading about this since the lab is in MA - it's been in the news around here and today's headline was that upwards of 15,000 people may have been exposed. Fungal infections are very hard to treat, as is MRSA, and the lag time can be nearly a month between the exposure and the symptoms. At least now they know what is it. Whatever opinions people may have had about Darren in the past, this is an awful circumstance and I wish him (and all affected) a speedy recovery.

    Poor Darren. That's a lot to deal with.

    I hope he gets well soon.

    Default Kick On Darren!

    Either of these infections are frightening on their own. If anyone can fight off both at once, it's an Eventer. Prayers for a swift and complete recovery.

    This. Jingles!!!
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    Whoa, poor Darren. Not easy for someone with an intact immune system. Many jingles.

    Is it known that he received one of those particular injections that were found to be infected?

    I just read this on the sidebar...this is very upsetting since its been on the news with the lab in Mass and as Hilary said, they announced that 15,000 people could be affected!!!!. I know many folks who get epidurals for back pain.
    This just seems to hit home too closely. I hope he recovers quickly and fully, and as twingates said, its an eventer who can do it.
    Best to you Darren~

    Default Oh no!

    This is such shocking and frightening news. Heartfelt jingles and get well wishes to Darren. I saw him this summer at the Stuart HT, in robust good health.

    I work in an orthopedic office and we administer many steroid injections, including epidurals, but we do not get our Depo Medrol from the compounder in Massachusetts. We have been fielding many phone calls from panicked patients and we have to reassure them that they are at no risk. Of course, we don't know what the vector for his illness is.

    Kick on Darren!

    Does this insinuate his infection came from a source other than a spinal injection?

    Oh no. Poor Darren. I hope he gets through this. Like others have said, if anyone can, it's him. He's a fighter and hopefully that bodes well for him.
