Lance is recovering!

The following is the content of an email that Lance sent earlier this evening.....

Hello everyone.
Well l survived a heart attack this last Thursday and the great fast acting San Diego fire dept with a ambulance got here with in about 3 to 4 minutes and speed me out to Scripps Memorial hospital and they got me stabilized and then transferred me over to my hospital Scripps Green Friday afternoon and fast tracked me Friday night with a angiogram and implanted a large stint in one of my arteries up close to my heart.

Was a real whirlwind but very very thankful to be alive and home and course lots of new drugs to take . l am still pretty tired and a
little weak but improving. I had just signed up with the LifeLine
button around my neck Tuesday and boy real thankful for that just pushed the button and fast action everywhere. Course on a blood thinner l really don't want but doctors orders and must take it everyday and carry nitroglycerine with me at all times now.

Well all this sure beats the alternative.
Hope everyone is well.

Lance: Get better. If you see this later tonight or tomorrow morning, I will call you from the airport.

to add to Lance's comments

I did talk to Lance while I was waiting to depart San Diego for NJ, while he sounded upbeat, he also sounded tired. He is very grateful to the SD EMT's and Fire Dept, and the staff at Scripts. In typical Lance fashion, he thought he was well enough to go home and wanted to leave the hospital. Fortunately, he listened to the DR's and hopefully now he will slow down and rest.
