Dave Balman a lifelong Glades warrior for freedom is in the hospital and it may be quite serious from what I was told.

Dave was the past President of the Airboat Association for many years.

A few prayers sent his way will help.

I remember he used to do the check in in big cypress. I used to see him on Friday nights and sundays in the 80s and 90s.

Hope he gets better.

Dave was supposed to be released last night then he got too weak and his sugar dropped they kept him in one more night and just released him this afternoon. He is still weak but Carol told me to get him up and moving when we go out there and try to motivate him some. It was close call the hospital wanted to send him to a home in homestead for folks that can't take care of themselves so Carol wasn't having any of that and i think kind of lit a fire under dave.
Thanking the big man for letting him make it back home again and hope Dave keeps improving
Carol thanks all for the prayers and good thoughts
