UPDATE ON RICH KOLL (frankg)

I want to post an update as to my medical condition. After having catheterization of my heart I wound up going to the emergency room three different times due to my leg swelling up like a balloon.

The third time in the emergency room was like a Chinese fire drill of vampires drawing blood for this test and that test. Needless to say I wound up being anemic. The original plan was to have a heart valve replaced along with two bypasses, which meant that they would have to crack open my chest again. I asked the doc if he could put in a zipper this time to save on the wear and tear.

After reviewing the pictures from the catheterization, it was decided that the heart valve replacement was not necessary at this time and that the use of medicated stents would be used to open up the previous by passes. Great news!!! No open chest or zipper installed.

I am now home and still not able to walk too well, but getting better with each passing day. Today is Christmas Day as well as my birthday and I will be hobbling over to my sister’s house for dinner. The sun is shining, and I am a happy camper. With the previous good news that there is no trace of the BIG “C”, and now with the ticker getting all the blood it needs, I look forward to the New Year with great expectations.

To all the friends and family, and my fellow model boatmen here on the FORUMs, I want to thank you for your prayers and well wishes. It reinforced my need to get well and get back to doing what I enjoy most, model boating.
Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.
