Petey

My friend Peter Griffin is the indefatigable and cheery soul who blogs at zigzackly, besides being a vital part of World Wide Help and much more.

Peter had a heart attack on Friday and is in hospital in Vashi. Some of us visited him last night; he's in good spirits if weary. If you want to send him your thoughts, please feel free to leave them here and I will tell him, next time I go there.

***

Update: As of Monday 19th, Pete's out of the ICU and in an ordinary room at the hospital. He will likely have an angiogram done soon. He was happy to hear about the wishes expressed here. Thanks.

Update May 23: Pete had an angiogram done last night, which found one block. An angioplasty was done to fix that. I met him in the ICU this afternoon: once again, he was in good spirits though visibly tired. He should be discharged tomorrow (Saturday).

***

Update May 27: After ten days in two hospitals, Peter was finally discharged yesterday. He will spend a few days at a friend's home for some well-deserved R&R.
