“Want [to] thank everyone for the kind words for dad. Yes he was injured and all that needs to be known is he’s getting better,” the post said. “He just called me to tell me what to do with to fix the problem. Anyone that knows dad knows he’s more worried about making the fans happy than himself. It’s part of our lifestyle yes it’s scary but that’s what makes life exciting. Dad’s always telling me what to do.”
