A number of questions have begun to arrive on our doorstep concerning the physical condition of a key member of our team – our leader, in fact – Doctor Cesar Parra. To help answer these questions and to avoid speculation, permit us to present the key facts as they are known to us.
While on a business trip to Germany, on Wednesday September 5, 2007 Cesar suffered a physical ailment and was immediately rushed to the hospital where he was diagnosed as having suffered several small strokes in the cerebellum. His wife Marcela flew immediately to be with him.
By Saturday September 8, Cesar showed marked improvement, was feeding himself, and showed none of the signs typically associated with a stroke. On Monday, the tenth of September, a scan of Cesar’s brain showed no adverse signs of a stroke having occurred and he was released from the hospital. He will be returning to his home in NJ this weekend.
Before leaving Germany to fly home with Marcela, Cesar gave us these words to share with his family, friends, and fans, “I thank God, my loving wife and family, my friends and my coworkers for seeing me through the past week. I have every confidence that no permanent harm was done and that God has given me a second chance at life, which I aim to make good use of by being even kinder to the people and horses that bless my life. I am grateful and I thank God for all of the wonderful people who came to my aid in this time of need, especially Sharon Myers and Silve Dietrich and of course all of the doctors and nurses of Clinic Osnabrueck who took such good care of me.”
