Ben Hardaway Hospitalized with Broken Hip

Shortly after returning from the Southern Hound Show, Ben Hardaway, MFH of the Midland Fox Hounds (GA), fell in the kitchen of his home and suffered a broken hip. He is in the Hughston Hospital, Room 263 (phone 706-494-2100).

Son-in-Law Mason Lampton writes that Hardaway “is in some pain but still has his humor.” Phone calls from friends are encouraged.

A hip replacement procedure is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, April 13, but any operation must wait until the effect of Hardaway’s blood-thinning drug wears off. Call Mason or Mary Lu for information.
