"Once Again One of Our Own Friends Needs all Our Help, Now"
« on: November 13, 2006, 06:31:02 AM »
I received this information from Ace this morning and have been thinking of it every since.
I want to inform you all that one of our very best busnut friends,  (Bob Weis), (aka NCbob), from NC and his wonderful wife Jackie needs us as a family to pull special prayers and thoughts for them right this moment.  Jackie was admitted into the hospital late last night, I do not know any of the details  except that she is in (ICU) and hope that Bob will be able to update us later today, but in the mean time anyone reading this email can pass on by other emails or phone and word will get back to them that we are truly concerned.

Our very biggest get well wishes are in this post Jackie, many people looking forward to you both being in FL. soon. 
Gary

It's now 2:00PM and Jackie has been transported to Mission Memorial Hospital in Asheville, NC, one of the finest Heart Hospitals in the Southeast.  Since she has two stents there's a possibility that one (or both) are blocked again so they have scheduled a Heart Cath.  As to when that will be we don't know at this time.  I just talked with her and will know in a few minutes as she's is with a Dr. at the moment.

If you're wondering why I'm here and not there...let me explain.  This all started in the early morning hours and she woke me to call 911.  They came and took her to the local hospital.  I followed and, of course the usual blood tests, x-Rays, etc. By 6 AM they were able to take the '2 hour Blood Enzimes' which would tell if it was a heart attack.  They came back at 7 and were normal. I came home for a short rest and they called me at 10 to tell me that she would be transported to Mission Memorial in Asheville (70 miles away).
I took her CPAP and some other items she needed and came back home to await more info.

Giving them time to get there I again called...but (as usual) she was lost in the system.  Finally I found here and you are now up to date.

Both Jackie and I would like to thank all our friends for their prayers and good wishes.  I will be leaving for the Hospital shortly and will keep Dallas apprised of progress or whatever.

God Bless you all and thank you.

First of all, Jackie and I thank you all for your concern, well wishes and prayers.

Tomorrow they will do a heart cath and determine exactly what the problem is and will go from there.  It will be a couple of days before she's back home again and a while before we can pick up our plans to go to FL for the winter.

But as long as we can we'll thank you, our friends, for your prayers and the Good Lord that it's not her time....yet.

Bob

Now, Bob, you just tell Jackie I said to quit all this and get back to normal  >:(, because I really wanted to meet her in Arcadia and get a lot of insight into how she's learned to put up with you all these years  ???.  I'm not about to let her off the hook, so she'll just have to postpone all these heart problems for a few years, 20 maybe. ;)

Seriously, we'll all be waiting on pins and needles to find out for sure that she's ok, and she won't have a choice but to be ok, because we're all out here praying, chanting, spinning in three circles before sitting, anything we can do to make her better.  You hang in there yourself, as we know you must be lost without her telling you what to do, where to go, etc. ;D  We're thinking of you guys constantly.  :-* Love Christy & Larry Hicks

HI Bob & Folks:

This aging process is not easy for any of us.

All the more reason for you young bucks and mates to be kind and gentle on these Boards and elsewhere as you pass through this very short event we call a "Life time"!!!!

Bob, my prayers are with You and Jackie, as the Pros will hopefully make the correct calls wih regard to her Medical Care!!

Happy & SAFE!! Bussin' to ALl.
