Vietnam, Korean veteran in hospital following robbery

When we last saw 79-year-old Robert Huber last week, his daughter, Kim McLemore, was talking to Fox10 News about the beating her father took when two robbers broke into his Daphne home and stole his television.

Shortly after our conversation, Huber had to be admitted to Thomas Hospital.

“At that point you were there, he started going downhill,” McLemore said.

McLemore is back at the hospital again to check on her dad, this time joined by her daughter, Kelsey, and her grandkids, Christopher and Nicholas.

“There’s a lot involved in our bodies and when you’re 79-years-old, it’s…there’s a lot of things going wrong,” McLemore said.

She said her father, a Vietnam and Korean War veteran, had to spend a couple of days in the intensive care unit because his oxygen levels were so low. Today, the prognosis looks promising.

“Time always tells, but it was up that he was going to get better,” McLemore said, a squirmy Nicholas on her shoulder. “And getting ‘better,’ that word is good to me right now.”

And while McLemore is glad to hear her father is doing better, she’ll really be happy when he can finally go home.

“We’re just praying every day that he gets a little better and a little better, and we can get him back the way he was,” she said.

The Daphne Police Department is continuing to investigate the case, but so far no arrests have been made.
