Dan McGuire, the less attractive one in the photo at right, suffered a heart attack Sunday morning (December 30). Dan was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital where they roto-rootered his clogged coronary artery and installed a stent to keep the blood flowing. He was in intensive-care Sunday but was expected to move to a regular room Monday. He was up and moving Sunday evening and is on the mend.
Dan said he feels good and they’ll keep him for 3 days because if anything goes wrong it usually happens within those three days. He appreciates your thoughts and prayers and says there’s no need to pay a hospital visit and hopes to see you all soon.
Update: Dan was discharged on New Years Day so he can recuperate at home.
