Update (11/18): Gary is off the breathing tube and sitting up talking to his daughter Sarah. He is expected to be moved to a regular room sometime this weekend. All signs are positive.
Update (11/16): Gary had quadruple by-pass surgery (they were thinking it would be a double until they got in there) but all went well. He is in recovery. Typical hospital stay is about a week.
Gary Rowberry will undergo open heart bypass surgery on Thursday, November 16, 2017, to repair 50% blockage in his arteries. The heart problem came to the attention of doctors when they were doing routine tests in advance of Gary’s hip replacement surgery, which he really needs. They won’t do the hip replacement until his heart problem is corrected.
He asks that you refrain from calling him for a few days after the surgery because he won’t be able to answer for a while.
Please keep Gary in your thoughts and prayers.
