Short and sweet, I had a serious heart attack on Wednesday night. I'm in the hospital, hooked up to a bunch of tubes. I have had a catheterization done and a stint put in, but there is still some blockage. So next Wednesday the doctors are going to do a little carving and install some new parts. No big deal.Talk about being an optimist! I'm sure Bob's positive attitude will go a long way toward his complete recovery ... along with the skilled hands of his doctors. It shows how life can turn on a dime ... and it also shows how the Virginia political blogosphere has become a community of caring individuals.
Uncle Jimbo at Blackfive took it a little more seriously than Bob:
Boy I hate writing this, but it's what we do. A great friend of many of ours and a magnificent patriot can use our help. "Concrete Bob" Miller had a heart attack and is in the hospital. His wife called this afternoon and asked if we could keep him in our prayers. I am not much for praying, but God will hear from me. They put a stent in today, but it looks like they are going to do a multiple bypass operation because of some blockages on a couple of arteries.As we approach the upcoming holidays, our prayers go out for Bob's recovery and for the doctors who will have his heart in their hands.
His wife was a little worried he might be mad about her telling us about this. I say, let him get up off his butt and do something about it. See you soon Bob.
And thank goodness the hospital has wireless internet! On top of a heart attack, we wouldn't want Bob to go through internet withdrawal!
Get well, CB! We have battles to fight....
