He was taken by ambulance to a hospital 5 minutes away where they heart cathed him, and in 2 hours they had stents in. Luckily he is OK today. It was at my weekly open mic hosting thing and there were other guys to cover him. That was a first.
Hmmm...how much pressure are you putting on these guys at open mic nite??? lol. Seriously though, hope he's doing well. Kind of puts everything into perspective doesn't it?
