Rex Temple, August 27, 2019

I was on my way to Wing Ding Monday morning with Libby.  We had to turn around and come back to Duke Regional Hospital.  My husband Rex went to go fishing Monday morning and started hurting in his chest and arms.  He actually got the boat home and went to urgent care.  They took him right back to a room and he passed out.  They had to shock him to bring him back to life.  Rushed him by ambulance to hospital and did emergency surgery on him.  He had a heart attack and had a 100% blockage in his lower artery.  They had to go in and put a stent in.    He is still in ICU, but should move him this afternoon to the 5th floor cardiologist.  He is doing better and wants to thank everyone for their prayers.  Love you all.
