Just wanted to let people know Chuck had a heath scare and hope you all put him in your prayers. He is a true "gentle" man

I hope he is doing okay and will certainly keep him in my prayers.

Chuck is good people. A 'knife person' as STeven will call him.
I'd heard he had problems and won't make the AG Russell show this year. Goldie got Jim Weyer to fill in... :eek:
So, Chuck, is partially responsible for the comeback of a legend. We will hope for the best for ALL concerned.
See you soon, my friend!

One of the best things about the shows in my region is talking with Chuck and Mary. He will be in my prayers.

Update please? Chuck, you alive and well?
08-16-2010, 05:17 PM
I'm still alive, feeling ok, but have severe coronary artery disease. ( I've never had symptons) I thought bypass surgery was certain six weeks ago. I had the first visit with the surgeon, but instead of surgery ( right then) he wanted me to get on a strict diet, add some new meds and lose weight. I still may have to have surgery, but as long as I'm not having symptoms we're going to hold off. I canceled The Branson show and AG's ( Jim Weyer covered for me there....thanks, Jim ) but plan to shoot the Oklahoma show and Jerry's Micro show. Just keeping my fingers crossed right now. Thanks for checking on me Coop, and everyone that has called or dropped by.

I didn't know what you were dealing with until I read your post. I'm sorry to hear that you are having health issues, but glad that you are feeling okay.
We'll keep you in our prayers. See you in Tulsa.

Chuck, I had quintuple bypass surgery right around 20 years ago (1987 actually). At the time, I was told they were meant to last between 6 months and 10 years, depending on how well one took care of himself - and haven't needed to join the "zipper club" yet.
I took reasonable care to do what the doctors suggested and, with the exception of needing a stent in 1999, I've had no symptoms since the original surgery in 1987. And the surgery itself is safe and I never experienced any real pain from the surgery. There's actually a far greater chance of complications from the leg incision, where they pull out the vein to use for the grafts.
Some know I've had other health issues, but with respect to the coronary artery disease issues, it's all about your diet, exercise and medications. They really go a long way toward reducing the risks and toward preventing the need for further interdiction.
All the best,

Chuck, wishing you the best. Hope you continue to feel better.

Hope your lifestyle changes are working and you soon feel better than ever Chuck. I've known quite a few people that have had "wake up calls" and have never felt better after making some diet and exercise changes.
Hope you join THAT club instead of the "zipper" club!
