Rod is in the hospital

Unread postby Blue Man » 2 months ago

Prayers for Rod as he is in the hospital with a tear in his aorta. Very serious as of right now but he was excited his hospital blanket had Rhody colors.

Just keep him in your thoughts. Now I guess we have to win the A10.

Just heard from someone who follows Rod on Facebook. His daughter posted that he will be having surgery this week.
In addition to the tear in the aorta, they also found an aneurysm in the abdomenal area. This normally wouldn't have been found.
I'm told this can be treated.

According to another update from his daughter, Rod has a long vertical tear in the aorta plus an ileac aneurism......

Wow....scary.

He will have surgery this week.....thank goodness they found this before it ruptured......

Probably will have a long recovery ahead.....but hopefully everything will be OK.

85, read the same thing....

Don't know about the aneurism, but one of my bosses had a torn aorta. They fixed it, and three or four months later he was good as new.

Just reading this and I am praying for Rod.

I met Rod last year at a URI game.. Having traveled from CT, I saw Rod in my section and had to say hello..

Had a great conversation with him at halftime and always respected him as being a true RHODY fan.

Reading this all I can do is keep him in my prayers.

Rod, this board is behind you 100%

God Bless

Prayers and wishes for you Rod for a speedy and full recovery. I had quite a scare and a couple of serious health issues a year ago from this past December then another issue a year to this date. I tried my very best to stay strong, positive and fight as hard as I could. Thankfully I am feeling well now. Hopefully you will have the same fortune.

Glad to hear the update news. Stay strong Rod and get well.
I had open heart surgery 9 years ago that included repair to my aorta.
I am in better shape now than I was then.
Love the hospital board responses - has Rod written all over it.
Looking forward to your next post.
