            More info:

            Frenchy is out of icu. he is in private room 212 West Florida
            Hosp. he actually had a little lunch.. whining already.. not
            sure how many days before he will be sent home..

            please pass on to those I may not have on his list....


            background... he was scheduled for a knee op. when doc saw ekg and
            called in a cardiologist. more tests were conducted and a cauterization
            clearly indicated he had had a "silent" heart attack some months ago and had
            severe blockages requiring a triple by-pass...

            Best part, he knew he had all the signs of a heart attack , BUT, it
            wasn't "that" bad, and he was going to the VA in 4 days anyway. He
            explained what had happened to him to the va, and they told him he would
            not be there if he had a heart attack. good v a. Frenchy has
            now taken a "silent" heart attack to level two...............have one, and,
            do not tell anyone.......

            knee operation will be rescheduled........ take care all, s /

              You GO Frenchy! Not fun being in those hospitals, Get Well Soon>>
              Larry I ran a streadmill many times and the VA said your Heart is great (PASS with flying colors).........When I did have trouble the Outside Doctor said "I need to do the Cauterization " Because of that I ended up with 4 Stents. I'm up to 7 and I have past ALL but the last 2 Streadmills since 98.

                Only a triple? No sheet batman...a walk in the park (but STAY OFF the Gunny's grass).You'll walk out the door in<5 days...
                Anyways, welcome to the "bypass club"...Just like their "end of tour policy," I don't think the Charlie get bypass ops as we do...gotta love war! Eh?
                BUT...and I empasize this...you gotta listen to nurse Cratchet and do what she says, as she know the G Reaper on a first name basis...and he has yours...just too busy right now to care...God Bless! Keep the faith.

                  Talked w/Frenchy and Nurse Cratchet last night...he should walk out of the hosp today...sort of weird, and comparable to a roomie I had in University, who went to hosp with a suspected broken wrist and came out w/knee ligamant operation.
