Update On Ed O’Neal: The Dixie Melody Boys were in Nashville on Friday doing a photo shoot. At the end of the session, it was clear that Ed was not feeling well. He had worried through the week that he felt a cold coming on, but nothing major. We took him to a nearby Urgent Care where his condition worsened. He was then taken to the hospital where they identified an infection, but could not trace the source. He was immediately put on antibiotics and measures were taken to control his blood pressure and lower the fever. He would doze off and on and every time he awoke, he asked about Mama Joy. Even in the midst of his own suffering, she was still his number one concern. We made sure she was well taken care of and assured Ed of such. Meanwhile, Ed’s son Allen and daughter and son-in-law, Dara and Bill, drove through the night from Kinston. Around midnight, Ed’s vitals were back to normal. He was exhausted, but feeling better. Just to be safe, he was admitted for overnight observation. He received the all clear this morning and the kids took him and Mama Joy back home. He gave us a good scare, but is doing much better. We ask that you continue to keep Ed and Mama Joy in your prayers while they rest at home and remember the Dixie Melody Boys as we soldier on in his absence. Also, we must send a huge thank you to Danny Jones, Rick Francis, and Bob Crawford for your support through the night and this morning. We cannot express enough how appreciative we are to these gentlemen. Keep in mind, it’s going to take a lot more than a little infection to keep the “old man” down. After all, all he ever wanted to do was sing a song.
