“MR” was a healthy man for most of his life. But recently his age, increased weight, and underlying medical problems, had taken their toll on his heart. Once able to keep a head of almost anyone, when he arrived in Boston this time, he was barely able to walk up one flight of stairs.
His emergency bypass and heart valve replacement at a Major Harvard Teaching Hospital went perfectly. He was out of the hospital in just days and beginning his exercise and strengthening program within a week from his hotel room overlooking the Boston Harbor. That was almost 10 years ago. Today he can still keep ahead of most anyone.
