You'll be up and in the kitchen in no time! Glad to hear it is better than expected.

Just saw this this thread. I read somewhere that there are bypasses done 300,000 times a year in the US. Bill Clinton is a great example and there are many more of how quickly one comes bouncing back--and then some. Having met Vince and his wife, I sure spirits are high, the hospital staff is being well tended to and Vince is being very well taken care of.

Best wishes to a speedy recovery- looking forward to posting of Vince playing flight of the bumble bee by Labor Day. grin

I, too, just saw this thread. Vince, I'm sure you are in very capable hands, and I pray for your speedy recovery. Try your best to do what the docs suggest. (Don't be like my father-in-law who continues to smoke even though he has congestive heart failure!)

Just for clarity, Jane is not Vince's wife.

For further clarity, I have lived vicariously through Vince for years now. What a stud. thumb

Latest news from Vince,

He is going home today around noon!

He will have a visiting nurse (he asked them to send one named Phoebe) wink 3 times per week, but everyone is very pleased with his progress.

Thanks for posting here as Vince enjoyed hearing your comments. Hopefully he will follow up personally before too long.

(I wonder if he will post pictures?)

In the interest of a full and speedy recovery, maybe it isn't such a good idea to send Phoebe to take care of Vince. Perhaps a nurse named Bruce might get better results.

To all, I lived.Thank you all for the prayers and well wishes. I (or someone) heard them all. I'm not frisky yet so my thank you will be brief. More later.

WOW!

You are already home?

That is fantastic! We all wish you a speedy recovery. And will miss your contributions....especially to all the newcomers that want to know when their pianos were built!

Vince:

Is this what I have to look forward to in retirement?
I hope all is well for a rapid recovery. I also hope that your day nurse is not a guy named Craig.
Best Regards

Frisky will come sooner than you think. You're gonna feel better than you have in the last 5 years.

Every day will be just a little bit better...

Very happy you are home and doing well! A serious word to the wise if I may. Five years ago at the age of 53 I went in for the "standard routine stress test". No symptoms, just something that should be done as one advances in life. During the test, the news become quite horrible. The same day I went straight to the hospital for a quadruple bypass!! Please, if nothing else for the sake of the music, see your doctor and take the appropriate steps in evaluating your current state of health. I was lucky!!

I saw Vince for about a half hour today.

He looked just fine and although he was moving slowly (he didn't take any pain meds today) he did not seem like they had opened his chest and messed with his plumbing just five days ago.

I was impressed by how mobile and totally normal he looked and acted. He seems well enough to post something here now. How about it Vince?
