If you scroll back to the post I started "Urgent..have you heard." this was in ref to where Has Jason been...I just got home from my mom's, been moving her all weekend, and was catching up on the boards..someone posted on that thread that Jason is in the hospital and is in serious condition with Tetanus. I had emailed him last week and got a auto reply that he was in very serious condition..I guess this is why. The only thing that I can figure out is..The weekend he posted "I Hate Weekends"..if you read his thread, you will know he changed a flat tire on his DW's car and cut his thumb open and had to have stitches..I cannot Belive he would have had his thumb stitched at a clinic and they did not give him a Tetanus shot..although in these days and times stuff like that does happen...I just wish that each of you will join me in Praying for Jason..this IS a serious condition.. If I hear anything else, I will let all of you know first..Thanks in advance.
I dont know if he went to the ER or just to a clinic..I just wanted this to be known.
This is the post from the other thread and how I found out he was in the hospital.

Jason is in the hospital with Tetanus. He is in serious condition. I could get in trouble because Iím not supposed to give out any information. I am on Mr. Dís computer because it is not under observation. I know He is always on this web site and I think you should know. I hope I did this correctly.
Thinking all the best thoughts and prayers for Jason. Re the hospital asking when the last tetanus shot given, you would have thought the ER where I tok my husband when he fell in March would have done a cat scan, too, but they didn't. You just never know these days.
I sure hope Jason is back home soon. I've never actually heard of anyone getting tetnus! Wow.

Now this really pisses me off. If my good friend Jason contracted Tetanus because some a--hole did not ask him wether he remembered or recalled when the last time that he had a shot makes me want to come down there and kick someones a--. The first question asked of you when you go to the emergency room requiring stitches is supposed to be do you remember or recall the last time you had a Tetanus shot. Jason, please get well soon. I miss your banter on the boards.

You have to be very careful when you go to a clinic for something that is considered minor. Mrs. Thomas and I call our local clinic the "Three Stooges" after the fiasco we went through to have a thorn removed from my ankle which had infected the joint.
Here's hoping for a quick recovery for Jason. Get well soon.
I think this is a reminder to ALL of us to make sure our Tetanus is kept up to date. Every 10 years, I hear.
Here's hoping Jason recovers quickly.

So surprised that he didn't get a tetanus - even if a person says they had it in the past 5 yrs - we usually give them another for a dirty cut. Is if for sure tetanus - or does he have another serious infection from the finger requiring IV Abx & hospitalization? I wonder - wishing Jason well & hope he gets back to us soon.
By the way he posts, I can't imagine his jaw being locked by anything.
Jason, quit lollygagging in that hospital and get back to this board where you belong!
The way my feet and hands end up with random, inexplicable scrapes and dings, I think the next time I go to the doctor, I will ask for a booster. Thanks for the reminder.
