Ron's procedure
« on: March 15, 2005, 04:24:00 PM »
All:

     Just got a call and my heart catheter and stent has been moved up to this Thursday morning.  I'll give you an update when they let me out.  :)

Thanks for all the good wishes.  I can't let Bob be the only one with attention. (haha)

This is a general thank you to all who sent me messages.  A lot easier than answering all separately.  I'm sure all will go well and I'll be back on line soon.

Ron,

I must have missed something. A Heart stent???? Was QZ that hard on you??? :) We will keep you in our thoughts. Just be ready for some great photo ops at Moab! In the meantime, leave those cute nurses alone! ;D ;D

Just saw a message posted by Ernie Carpet (he bought Ron's previous BB) regarding Ron's procedure. Without Ernie's permission, I am reposting his message to make sure everyone is aware of the status. >:( >:(
********************************************
I just got off the phone with Ron's wife, Shirley. He was scheduled to have a stent installed this am. The area of installation was too close to the heart, thus he is not a candidate for the stint, but must have bypass surgery. Currently they are waiting on the surgeon to inform them of when that will take place. Shirley said it won't be today but possibly Fri. More later

Bernie, no sweat about quoting me. When I talked to Shirley she was quite alarmed and not prepared for this bit of news. We have some friends from our Wanderlodge Forum going over and checking on her. He is in a very fine hospital, so hopefully all will be well. Ernie Ekberg

Thanks for the OK on the quote. I thought it was important enough to post immediately without trying to track you down. Glad to see you here, you've added a lot on the other forums.

Howdy, Y'all.
It is 1:35 PM.
I just heard from Shirley Marabito. Ron had his open heart surgery this morning. The docs are closing him up and everything went well!!!
Ron is being moved to a different floor and room. When I get that info, I post an  update.

Tell Shirley to get him a large teddy bear. The Hosp issued me one in 87 when I had my bypass. Makes coffing MUCH less painful when huging a bear!

Hi Everyone
Just talked to Shirley and Ron is doing great and was suppose to go home today but they decided to keep him one more day because his heart went out of rhythm last night for a short time but then went back to norm on its own.  So he should be back on line in a few days hopefully.

When Ron gets well enough we can ask why he didn't talk to us from his hospital bed with his notebook like Bob did  ;D

If the hospital there is like the one in Billings, all the stuff is on wireless PCs and no strange ones were allowed.  This was in July when my brother had his bypasses.

Tom,

I used my ATT wireless network via datapath and my ATT Samsung phone and also connected via analog dialup (AOL) through my phone port in the room, using '9' to dial out.

Oh, do I get an "M" for Chat moderation?
