I don't usually do a lot of this but I'm back asking for help from my WT brothers and sisters. Some of you have met Walt, my father in law. He's my other wheelin partner and has been with me to Hot Springs many times and to Clayton last fall. Well, he's in the hosp due to some chest pain and they are keeping him till Friday when they are going to try to clear up two 90%+ blockages to his heart. The old fart is strong as an ox and was just splitten firewood yesterday! He went through open heart surgery about 15 years ago and was walking me around his latest construction site four days later! I'm sure recovery will be a bit slower now that he's in his 70's but you just never know with this guy. Anyway, keep a good thought if you will and maybe things will go as well for him as they did for Mrs. Wanabe a short time ago. Thanks in advance - Daryl

He sounds a lot like my Dad, Dad is 74 and still works every day.
He had 2 bad blocks and a bad valve that they had to fix.
He was out in 3 days and never even took pain pills.

Good luck Daryl and we will be thinking about you.

True enough. My mom's had 2 triple bypasses now. 72 years old. A country girl at heart.

Best wishes

Progress report time. Ol' Walt had two stints installed today with great success. These were the two that were blocked 90%+. That leaves two more that are about 70% blocked and it looks like they are going to keep him on the ward till they get ready to do the other two on Monday or Tuesday. Looks good so far!!!
