Default Dr Thog has another heart attack

We flew Richmond Dale yesterday. Me, Primavera, Thogmartin, and Dudley, with new import Bob from Mo. assisting. Toms flight was the shortest, everyone else enjoyed some good Richmondale high wind soaring getting 650 above launch. After we all landed Mark tells us he's having another heart attack and Bob takes him to Aetna Hospital in Chillicothe where he underwent heart cath surgery. My last contact, his family was there and he was in surgery. Our prayers are with him.

What an awful thing to hear but the good news is it didn't happen mid flight and he knew what was going on. Also good that there was a hospital close and able to administer the needed treatment. Please keep us posted if you hear any more information.
Hank, if your lurking, how's Ralph?

Prayers for both.

That's ... wow ... don't know what to say!!

Mark, you're in my prayers and I'm wishing you a speedy recovery!

Hopefully they were able to place stents during the cath procedure and you didn't have to have an open heart surgery!

Default Mark still in intesive care

..at Aetna Memorial Hospital in Chillicothe. I talked with his wife Dona today. He has no room phone and cell phone coverage is not good. He'd welcome visitors. Monday the doctors will decide whether or not to do open heart bipass surgery. His spirits are down, as one might expect especially considering Mark has done everything right, clean lifestyle, excersizing, Zone diet, weight loss, and great additude. Cards etc can be sent to his home address, the same PO Box one would send OF dues to.
