I copied this post from the one about BK's rally.  I did this to be certain everyone sees it.  According to an email I received from Ned's daughter they are allowing Wilma to stay with him in ICU. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.

This posting is coming from "Uncle Ned's" kids.  After Ned and Wilma left the Busnut gathering they have been traveling around through TN.  They made it to Pickwick, TN Friday and Friday night/Saturday morning around midnight - "Uncle Ned" (Daddy) had a heart attack and was flown to Jackson-Madison County General Hospital in Jackson, TN.  Us kids left Lenoir, NC about 5am Saturday and went out to be with Mom and Dad - They did a heart cath yesterday (Sunday) late and found that he will have to have by-pass surgery.    We do not know when that is to be scheduled (told 2 to 3 days or possibly 3 to 5 days.)  When we last saw him - he was in Cardiac ICU.  We (kids) left to come home last night and arrived back home this morning about 5am.  Wilma and Huggy Bear are still with Ned at the hospital.  Just wanted to let everyone know what is going on.  I am not sure how this site works - so I am not sure if I will be able to get back on to make another post - so if you want more information, please email me at the following email address - info_scs@bellsouth.net or call 828-758-5820 and if we do not answer, just leave a voicemail message and we will return the call as soon as we can.

Thanks!

Cat, YES thank you!
I feel so bad hearing about this, and even worse that it happened so close to us! I wish I'd know sooner, so I could have seen if there was anything I could do to help out Wilma & the "kids" this weekend! I do plan to call them tomorrow and go down and see them ASAP! I'm like barely over an hour north of them! They are all in our prayers and hopefully he is going to be able to have visitors soon!

Update from Ned's family:

Thanks for the email.  Here is the latest.
 
Ned (Daddy) was moved out into a regular room yesterday - Room 225.  We have a friend that leaves in Memphis and he was able to visit with them yesterday.  Mom called this morning and Daddy surgery is scheduled for Wednesday morning.  After the visit yesterday - he will be having a triple by-pass.  We are in the process of getting our schedules arrange so that we will be able to get out there as soon as we can.
 
You can google the hospital and on their website there is a link that you can send e-cards and the volunteers will deliver them to his room.
 
We were not able to find internet access in the family waiting rooms but we will do our best to keep you posted tomorrow.
 
Thanks for your help in getting this posted for everyone to see.  Tell everyone that we appreciate the prayers!

I spoke with Denika this AM Ned is doing OK & yes is scheduled for surgery tomorrow!
She said they (the kids) have rearranged schedules to travel back to Jackson for this.
I gave her my cell & toll free # and told her we are right at an hour away and to call if ANYTHING is needed! We will be checking in on him/them this evening!

Holy Moley! I don't read the Board for a couple of days and one of my best friends has a heart attack.
Wilma and family, Ned is at the top of our prayer list along with all of you.

We're terribly far away to do anything but offer support. Somehow I can't help but feel that the Good Lord isn't ready for Ned yet....he has more work to do.

We will watch closely for any reports and our hearts are with you.

OK folks I thought everybody would be happy to know I took "Grampa Cody" down to Jackson and we went and saw Wilma & Ned.
They were sitting watching TV and doing fine.

Ned sure perked up to hear all the msgs I had for him, and both were thankful to ALL Y'ALL!

He goes in fer triple bypass @ 6:00AM and will be sitting on the edge of the bed barking orders by night fall! Grin

Seriously the Dr. told them he is in excellent health other than the blockages and that he'll come thru this fine. (and Wilma did really tell me that the Dr. said he expects Ned to be able to sit on the edge of the bed by himself by night time after the surgery!)

We took them a great big crock pot of home made veggie soup for the family tomorrow, and Wilma & I went and put it in a pot in the fridge of "Huggy"!(since she wouldn't dream of hanging on to our crock pot!) Ain't no tell'n what kinda mischief Cody & Ned got into while we was gone.

Wilma promised to call & update us tomorrow evening after the dust settles and Ned has time to recover some. (I told her "I'll Be Back" if she didn't!)

Again they said to thank ALL Y'ALL fer the thoughts, prayers & msgs!

I will post more when I know more! Grin

Just got an update report on Uncle Ned from Wilma!

He is fine he came out of surgery around 11:30 and did just fine. His Dr said all went well and he now has 3 new hwys/bypassages around the congested areas! He should be good to go for a long time now! (my words not Wilma or the Dr.s!)

Will check in on him later and provide updates as available!
Grin  BK  Grin

By the way he is in Jackson-Madison County General Hospital in Jackson, TN (last night he was in rm A225) I believe he'll be back in the same room after recovery!

BK, what mischief could I possibly get into while me and Ned were discussing world events and other topics, as a couple of deep thinkers we tend to lean towards the scholastic side of discussions like how we're going to smuggle in a pizza. It was good to see Ned in good spirits tho.

Cody, Your post might fly with the members who don't know you (exception made for your comments about our mutual friend, Ned) but where in the Sam Hill are you? If you and Alice are anywhere near Ned...please tell him we're pulling for him and wish to see both he and Wilma (and Sam) in our future.

I truly don't believe that you could make Ned a convert to your philosophy...but then you have every right to believe in Obama.

When someone wrote, I have no idea, wrote "May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You" there is no doubt in my mind that he had folks like Wilma and Ned in mind.

Latest update from Neds daughter:

Mom just called me and Dad(Uncle Ned) is out of surgery and doing fine. They did do a triple bypass. Mom has gotten to see him twice and said that the last time he was off the vent. and asking for a t-bone.  She said his color is much better than before the surgery. We will check in as often as we can and thank you for all the prayers, I know they helped.

Bob,
Cody and Alice are only about an hour & an a half north of Ned & Wilma.
Cody & I went down and saw them last night!
Ned was in good spirits, and yes Cody tried to corrupt him!

One other thing that has me confused, Cody has told me that you are a devine and devoted democrat and especially fond of Mr. Obama. I don't understand yer comment about him at all if you supported him in his election as Cody says you did! Wow that wa$ $ome contribution $ you $ent him!

I spoke with Wilma this evening again and Ned is doing fine! The Dr is well impressed with his condition and progress!
She said that when they saw him he looked great and was in good spirits.
One thing though was that the Dr. didn't want them to let him talk much. Those of you who know "Uncle Ned" know how hard is must be on him not to be able to talk!
(almost as hard as Cody staying out of trouble! Grin !)

Jackie uses a chin strap to keep her yap shut at night when she's unsing her C-pap machine. I'm sure she has an extra I could send to Wilma for Ned! Grin

Knowing how Ned is I'd imagine that if he had his bike with him he'd want to ride the "Dragon" on the way home.

Just received an email from Ned's daughter again with an update. 

I just got to see Ned (Daddy).  He is sitting in his chair waiting to be moved into a regular room.  He looks good, but is ready to go!  We are not sure at the moment when he will get to come home.  I will keep you posted.

Just spoke with Ned & Wilma both! He is in good spirits, and sounds good!
Wilma said he is looking good and still surprising the Dr at how fast he's recovering compared to other patients.
He said he was surprised that Bob took time away from eating to "talk" to us! (LOL! Grin something about calling Bob during the rally and being told "I ain't got time to talk to them. I'm eat'n! Grin)
When I told him lots of members here were praying, and asking about him.
He said "they is a bunch o' good people there on the board, includ'n you" (I told him not to tell anyone, it'll ruin my reputation!)
(He also asked "who was bet'n 4, & against him and what was the odds?")  now who woulda set up a pool like that? Hmmmm......... Cody, what you and Frank been up too?

By the way he's been moved to room 232!  That's all I have fer now!

From family experience, a bypass is like a serious tuneup and carb rebuild on an engine. It was runnin OK before, but clean out the pipes, new air filter, points, and spark plugs and it's a whole new beast!  good luck and all the best.  Nice to see the family in action!

Would you do me a favor? Please tell Ned that I can hear Huggy crying (even from this big distance).  Huggy is crying because Huggy is missing his dad! Also please tell him that he is missed, and I am praying for him.

Btw what is all of this talk about Cody causing trouble? I don't believe it! I assume that we are talking about St. Cody right? Grin

Thanks for the updates. I look forward to seeing the updates.
