A fund raiser and an update on Kevin Babington

PRINCETON, N.J.--Andrews Philbrick's Princeton Show Jumping is having a fund raiser for Kevin Babington, and a report from Dianna Babington on his condition.

Kevin is making strides, but his medical bills will be huge, so any donation would be a huge help.

Enter the Kevin Babington Benefit Dog Costume Contest
Sunday, October 13 at 11am!
Open to all.


Multiple categories. Ribbons and prizes!
Entry fees from the dog costume contest will be donated to Kevin Babington and his family.


UPDATE FROM Dianna Babington on Oct. 9.......I am extremely happy to report that last night Kevin was off the ventilator completely overnight.

That marks 24 hours of unassisted breathing.

This is a huge success.

This means freedom to travel when rehab is behind him.

This means his diaphragm has gotten stronger.

This means teaching will be well within his wheelhouse once he gets stronger!

He slept well, maintained his oxygen status perfectly and is bright this morning.

His respiratory therapist said his ventilator should get its resume together .

He slept all day yesterday and I think it helped get him ready.

Last night Marielle and I showed him all the photos and videos I took at Princeton Showjumping and Duncraven.

We also read to him from the book of good wishes from the Benefit Show.

He was extremely moved and said, “when I get out of here I have a lot of giving back to do” and I said, “You earned this Kevin, you are getting back right now for so much you already have given to so many.”

He said “I still have lots to do.”
