Missoula, MT –-(Ammoland.com)- Dear MSSA Friends,
Ty Marbut here – Gary's son – writing you from St. Pat's Hospital about my dad's surgery. Some of you may know that Gary was going in for non-emergency cardiac surgery this week, and many folks have asked for updates on his condition and outcome.
Due to a scheduling mixup here at St. Pat's, we learned only yesterday afternoon that this surgery was scheduled for today rather than tomorrow. The surgery is now complete. Reports throughout the 5-hour open-heart surgery, including the wrap-up report, all indicated that everything went smoothly and according to plan.
As of now (Weds afternoon), they moved Gary to the ICU for the immediate surgery recovery period, and he will have his own room sometime tomorrow. I'll update you again tomorrow when the surgery results will be more final, but for now, everything is looking good.
I expect Dad to be back on e-mail maybe Friday, likely Saturday, or maybe Sunday, and my rough guess is that they'll discharge him on Monday or Tuesday. His birthday is tomorrow, the 24th. Well-wishes should be directed to [email protected] rather than to my e-mail address.
Finally, I thought I'd share something amusing that Dad and I saw entering the hospital this morning – attached photo regarding “pets”.
Best wishes to all,
