As you will recall, recently on June 17th, 2009, here, information was shared on Florida Skunk Ape eyewitness and researcher Pat Rance having some healthwatch concerns. The following is his own update on the situation.
Many thanks to all of the concerned readers.
I am doing just fine; I apparently had several (7-8) mini heart attacks prior to the big one that night. I didn’t realize that that’s what was going on; unfortunately there isn’t an owners manual for this type of thing! lol.
I woke at around 1:30 am on Tuesday the 15th [of June 2009]. After an hour of the pain not going away, I decided it was time to reluctantly go to the emergency room.
I was airlifted from one hospital emergency room to another at around 2:45 am. When I got to Florida Hospital Orlando they immediately brought me into a cardiac surgery unit and the cardiac team determined that I had a 95% blockage of my right coronary artery.
The team performed an angioplasty, and then inserted a stent to keep the coronary artery open. I was awake watching the procedure on the monitors, and even talking with the Dr. as they did the procedures.
By 4:00 am, I was in an ICU recovery room. They released me on [June 17, 2009] Wednesday, early afternoon. I took that [June 18, 2009] Thursday off, and then went back to work on that Friday [June 19, 2009].
I have been doing good. It really hasn’t slowed me down much; I’m still mowing the 1-1/2 acres at my weekend house, and cutting logs into fire wood with an ax in the 90*+ heat. No problems!
I also was out for a few hours over [the July 4th] weekend hiking in a new area in the Ocala National Forest, just a couple of miles from my weekend house.
I would like to thank all of the people who have sent me emails or called to check up on me. I appeciate your concerns. It will take alot more than that to keep me out of the woods.
