Guys, I realize everybody here does not know Vernon Huffines aka poospleasures but he had a heart attack within the last couple days.
The reason I say the last couple days is because he just called me from the hospital bed and he wasn’t exactly coherent and still had some confusion about the incident.
As a result I didn’t get all the information about the heart attack but he did say something like “they opened me up ” but he was awake enough to give me a call.
I would ask that his LJ friends that are inclined to do so, offer a prayer for his recovery and again if so inclined perhaps a card would help lighten his day while he’s laid up.
the address is : Vernon Huffines Baptist East Louisville 4000 Kresge Way Louisville, Ky. 40207

phone number 503-897-8100

Thanks,
Dick Byrd
aka recycle 1943

UPDATE
I just spoke to Jackie. Vernon had open heart surgery last Monday and had 5 bypass procedures. At this point he is doing very good other than not wanting to be in the hospital.

I’ve dealt with Vernon on this site and sent him a swap at one time. I’ll get the wife to drop a card in the mail and send prayers. Thanks for letting us know.

Tony, I’ve already emailed Earl, I don’t think he should be removed from the swap list just yet. When I talked to him last week he told me what he was swapping but didn’t say whether it was ready or not. I asked Earl to give me a couple weeks before that decision is made.

Good news – I just talked to Vernon and he is (according to him) doing as good as can be expected 7 days after a 5 bypass surgery.

You’re right Tony, he is one lucky individual. I hesitate to put things in writing for fear of getting things wrong but his wife told me that they got to the hospital and he was in surgery as close to immediately as scrubbing up can allow.
