Gator had his surgery this past Friday and should be discharging home today or tomorrow. He is doing well.

Good to hear all is going well. I wonder if he would be interested in joining us here? I would love to pick his brain about what he has learned about exercise and valves through all of this.

So good to hear, tell Gator we're all thinking of him. With CA down, we aren't able to read an update from him.

Always the "over-achiever"

Post by Gary E on Thu Jan 16, 2014 3:54 pm

Richard just called and said that he insisted on walking down the hallway today (even though the staff doesn't hear of such talk until four days after that type of surgery). He lost four pints of blood this time (compared to very little the first go-around) but we all know that our irrepressible Gator always wants to set the bar high even if it is in a questionable way. His surgeon is very optimistic about the longevity of this valve and despite the fact that Richard has to sleep sitting up (because of some congestive issues with his airway) he is as upbeat as ever.

He just wanted me to say "hi" to all of you, and to thank everyone for their caring thoughts and comments. I'm sure he'll be on here giving more details when he does finally get home.

Glad to hear he's up and testing his limits again!! Thanks for the update Gary.

I feel sorry for his Doctors and Nurses though... They don't have any idea what they got themselves into  lol!

Is being stubborn part of being an athlete. Sounds like it to me, always pushing just a little further than what normal people might do. Glad to hear he's up and about.
