[This was received form Bob Gillig's wife as an update on his condition--eds]
Hi everyone...I am so sorry I haven't written you back with news of Bob's condition. You can imagine how busy and overwhelmed we have been here. Bob is doing great, we brought him home Wed. and he's on the road to recovery. With a good diet, exercise, meds, and some R&R not to mention a little TLC he will be his old "bad" self real soon! LOL!
He had an angiogram on Monday, they did and angioplasty and inserted 2 stints to open up the bad artery. With all the wonderful friends and family he's surrounded with he's bound to recover in no time.
Our sincere thank you's to everyone who was so kind to send us lovely notes of encouragement and concern & all those prayers...they worked! :) You have no idea how much that meant to us especially Bob. He loved hearing who called or wrote. I will keep you posted.
I guess his timing couldn't have been better. With the 1998 racing season at an end, he can recoop without being stressed to get to the next event! Its unreal how things happen. Our best to you all, take care. TEAM IHRA thanks for a wonderful year, its been the BEST!
OH...BTW Bob say's "hi and this isn't the end of Gillig Motorsports and that BAD Olds Cutless!" LOL
Bye for now...Roseann Gillig
