Uncle Ned
« on: October 05, 2009, 04:40:50 PM »
I copied this post from the one about BK's rally.  I did this to be certain everyone sees it.  According to an email I received from Ned's daughter they are allowing Wilma to stay with him in ICU. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.

This posting is coming from "Uncle Ned's" kids.  After Ned and Wilma left the Busnut gathering they have been traveling around through TN.  They made it to Pickwick, TN Friday and Friday night/Saturday morning around midnight - "Uncle Ned" (Daddy) had a heart attack and was flown to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital in Jackson, TN.  Us kids left Lenoir, NC about 5am Saturday and went out to be with Mom and Dad - They did a heart cath yesterday (Sunday) late and found that he will have to have by-pass surgery.    We do not know when that is to be scheduled (told 2 to 3 days or possibly 3 to 5 days.)  When we last saw him - he was in Cardiac ICU.  We (kids) left to come home last night and arrived back home this morning about 5am.  Wilma and Huggy Bear are still with Ned at the hospital.  Just wanted to let everyone know what is going on.  I am not sure how this site works - so I am not sure if I will be able to get back on to make another post - so if you want more information, please email me at the following email address - info_scs@bellsouth.net or call 828-758-5820 and if we do not answer, just leave a voicemail message and we will return the call as soon as we can.

Thanks!

Uncle Ned's kids - Doug, Donna, Denika

Cat, YES thank you!
I feel so bad hearing about this, and even worse that it happened so close to us! I wish I'd know sooner, so I could have seen if there was anything I could do to help out Wilma & the "kids" this weekend! I do plan to call them tomorrow and go down and see them ASAP! I'm like barely over an hour north of them! They are all in our prayers and hopefully he is going to be able to have visitors soon!

Update from Ned's family:

Thanks for the email.  Here is the latest.
 
Ned (Daddy) was moved out into a regular room yesterday - Room 225.  We have a friend that leaves in Memphis and he was able to visit with them yesterday.  Mom called this morning and Daddy surgery is scheduled for Wednesday morning.  After the visit yesterday - he will be having a triple by-pass.  We are in the process of getting our schedules arrange so that we will be able to get out there as soon as we can.
 
You can google the hospital and on their website there is a link that you can send e-cards and the volunteers will deliver them to his room.
 
We were not able to find internet access in the family waiting rooms but we will do our best to keep you posted tomorrow.
 
Thanks for your help in getting this posted for everyone to see.  Tell everyone that we appreciate the prayers!

I spoke with Denika this AM Ned is doing OK & yes is scheduled for surgery tomorrow!
She said they (the kids) have rearranged schedules to travel back to Jackson for this.
I gave her my cell & toll free # and told her we are right at an hour away and to call if ANYTHING is needed! We will be checking in on him/them this evening!
