Wiley's good!, (but Cubs lose to Atlanta in 12)

From Wiley's wife Kate...

Dear Friends,
Wiley had his by-pass surgery this morning (Tuesday) at Willis Knighton North Hospital in Shreveport and he did well. He had five by-passes. (Ed. note: ... but only because they had a 'Buy 4, Get 1 Free' special going...) This evening he is off the ventilator and practicing breathing exercises. He can talk a little, but is hoarse. He will be in the ICU for two or so days and then a regular room for a few days.
He is clutching a blue Flair pen and wearing his Cubs cap.
Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers,
