I spoke to Vince today by phone. He had just been through a stress test and his doctor advised him to have bypass surgery asap. It will either be a triple or quadruple bypass and the procedure will happen tomorrow morning.

It was originally supposed to be today, but the hospital sent him home as the operating rooms were already taken. As he left for a day at home to think about it, the doctor advised him against doing anything strenuous, he should not stay up late, couldn't eat a big dinner, and advised that he not drink.

Vince shot back, "Then what the %&$# am I going home for?"

Keep good thoughts for Vince. He is the best!

Obviously, to sit around reading PW and the good wishes and energy we are all sending his way!

I'm sorry to hear the news... "bypass surgery" is a scary phrase indeed, especially when modified by the words "triple" or "quadruple." The good news is that cardiac surgery has really advanced in recent years. I'm guessing Vince will be back on his feet within days and will soon resume his helpful role of informing newbies that their "valuable antique" uprights are really worth less than the cost of moving them to a dump... laugh

Our thoughts are with you, Vince. Hope it goes well for you tomorrow. smile

All the best Vince.

I had a triple in 1999 and look at me.
Ok, maybe that's not the best example :-)

The first thing I did when the nurses got me up to walk
was ask where I could find a computer with an Internet connection, so I could
check Piano World (I kid you not).

They let me use the one in the nurses lounge.

It's ok though Vince, you can wait until you get home.

Seriously though, you'll be fine, but trust me when I tell you...
DO WHAT YOUR DOCTOR(s) TELLS YOU!

Eat the way they tell you, exercise the way they tell you.
Get the rest they tell you, take the meds they prescibe.

Before you know it, you'll feel better than new.

"Vince shot back, "Then what the %&$# am I going home for?"

Sounds a lot like a memorable quote from Woodie Guthrie; unfortunately not the kind of thing you could reprint on Piano World.

Any kind of big surgical procedure is scary, but this is one that can really give you a new life. My best wishes.

It's 4:15AM, I'm due at hospital at 5:15AM. Only a 15 minute drive. A wonderful niece stayed over and is driving me.
I would like to thank Rich and all of you for the well wishes, and prayers.

It is amazing what medicine can do to make things right again.

Best thoughts will be with you today and no chasing after the nurses during your recovery!

I hope all is well--remarkable what doctors can do. You'll be entertaining the nurses in no time!

Any word? If he had the surgery yesterday, they probably have him walking already...
