Gary Rowbverry had his hip replacement surgery on Monday (Jan. 8) in Houston as scheduled. By Tuesday afternoon he was back at his apartment. Gary said as soon as he woke up after surgery he was no longer hurting. He says he feels great and hopes to be back to work in a couple of weeks. Typical recovery time is 6 to 8 weeks but he’s hoping the doctor will clear him to return to work since, as we know, he really doesn’t do anything.
Row says he was really crabby, which he attributes to his bad hip, and also always tired which he attributes to his bad heart. Now that he’s taken care of those two issues he feels like a new man. He said, “the Crabby Row is gone!” And he has a lot more energy than he did have. Anyone wanting to call him and test his crabbyless attitude, you can reach him at 314-715-5429.
Update: (11/22): Talked with Gary today and he’s getting ready to check out of the hospital and go back to his apartment. He said he’s feeling really good with minimal pain and everything is looking good. He’s going to start cardiac rehab to build himself up. He can’t drive for 6 weeks. Once he gets his heart built back up he’ll undergo the hip replacement and said he’ll be as mean and ugly as ever and good for another 30 years. He wants to thank everyone for their well wishes, thoughts and prayers. He’s hoping to be able to come back to St. Louis around Christmas but if not, by February for sure.
Glutton Brother Rick Walton was killed in a car crash around 5 pm Sunday afternoon October 8, 2017. Details are sketchy but apparently, he was on his way home from a benefit for a friend in the St. Charles area when he lost control of his truck on I-70 near Dave & Busters and went off the road and hit a tree. Rick was not thrown from the vehicle as first reported. He had his seatbelt on.
