I know a lot of us have been worried about Ridge. In a lot of ways, he's the heart and soul of the RIA community - a true gentleman who gives everyone the benefit of the doubt, helps out newbies, and is always quick with an encouraging word.
Here is the full update from Stark:
"You can tell folks (post it on the blog if you want) that Ridge thought that he had been struck with the worst flu bug of his life. He thought he might feel better in a couple of days if he drank lots of fluids and got plenty of sleep. Only it turned out not to be the flu. The pain seemed to be getting worse until it was difficult to breath. At that point I took him to the emergency room. He had been through a full blown heart attack and the local ER put him in an ambulance and transported him to the cardiac hospital in the next town.
They did an angiogram and put a balloon in the artery to open it up, then inserted a little spring like tube to keep it open.
He's not out of the woods yet, but he's doing much much better.
His humor is returning, and that's a good sign.
Ridge is one tough bird. He's survived cancer, a stroke and a heart attack. And he's still grinning."
Well wishers can chime in here.
