    Yo, John, my brother had a quintuple bypass (all FIVE of his coronary arteries were blocked!) so he’s got you beat, my friend! And these days he’s playing tennis and riding his bicycle on 70 mile road trips….

    Stay strong, my friend!

    A friend of a friend had multiple bypass surgery – many years ago – and, as reported by a mutual acquaintance, to celebrate his survival, fired up the barbecue and cooked himself a whole rack of ribs.
