Bill was supposed to check in at THVs yesterday for opening day at the new villas. He was eager to post detailed description of distances to/from THVs as well as photos of the villa and resort area.

He has been in FL for a few weeks now and attended Diane's meet at Kidani a couple of weeks ago and I got to spend some time with he and his wife while at OKW. He has been visiting with his sister near Tampa.

He began experiencing some health issues and went to the hospital for evaluation. It seems he is in need of triple bypass heart surgery - originally planned for today. After running the usual gamut of medical tests, he learned Monday afternoon that his heart was not strong enough for the surgical procedure procedure so a consult was set for this morning to discuss other options.

The decision has now been made to send him home with a ton of medications. With any luck, with the meds his heart will be strong enough for the surgery in a few months. Otherwise, the alternative is a heart transplant.

He'll be in the hospital for a day or two longer, then at his sister's for a few days, and then fly home. DW will drive back up and dvc_john (Bill's brother) will follow her. One of the kids will pick him up at the airport and stay with him until Peg and John can get back home.

John has been keeping me posted with Bill's condition and progress and I will try to contact Bill once he returns home.

Please keep Bill and his family in your thoughts and prayers as they negotiate the challenges before them. I will update this thread when further information is received. I asked for and received Bill's permission to share this information here on Mousecellaneous as I knew most would want to know.

Edited on 6/10/09 - I just spoke with Bill on the phone and commented in post 245 - http://www.disboards.com/showpost.php?p=32218851&postcount=245 . He hopes to provide a personal update soon.

My DH and I were also at Kidani for the meet a few weeks ago....Bill and Peg were excited about checking into the THV on 6/1.......I thought it was strange yesterday when there was no post from him.......hopefully, he'll get stronger and have the surgery soon. Well wishes sent your way, Bill.

Wow - I am a long-time lurker here, and only have a few posts. However, I have always seen CaskBill to be somebody knowledgeable, friendly, and always ready to share his love of DVC, and to help others - especially with the HUGE amount of loving work he has put into his "trackers". So - even though I don't post often, I feel like I "know" him, and will DEFINITELY send all the positive thoughts and healing vibes I can muster up his way!!

I am sending a prayer up right now for healing in his body and wisdom for the doctors. I lost my dad (he was 60) last year, he was diagnosed in January & suddenly had a heart attack in April. He had a web site & was very known on a message board in his area of expertise ... we had an outpouring of love/messages from those he impacted there, this was very touching to our family. I hope Caskbill and his family know how much he is appreciated here at the Disboards and for all the excellent programs he has created for us. He has made a mark on this world for sure!

Bill has read most of your replies, and is very appreciative of all your best wishes, thoughts, and prayers.

He's at our sister's house now. He's resting and stable, but weak. He will be flying back to Indiana on Monday with Peg. He's got an appointment with a cardiologist up there as soon as he gets back.

Thanks again everyone.

They both did great...my dad went back to work (he was working full tim before the surgery even though he was 73 at the time!) at five weeks cause he was "bored." My FIL managed a trip to Ireland about two months after surgery!

Hello everyone!

I'm feeling quite a bit better, the meds are certainly helping. Still a little weak, but my breathing is greatly improved and I'm able to walk short distances.

Just wanted to hop on line quickly to say that I've read all your messages and want to give everyone a heartfelt Thank You for all your kind words and prayers. They have touched me deeply. I've always known our DIS DVC community was special, and all your well wishes have certainly shown that to be true.

We finally fly back to Indiana tomorrow, and it will be good to get home.

Again, thanks to all of you.

I like to think that we're a giant family here on the DVC boards :love: (as proven by the frequently heated "my home is better than your home" comparisons and "why did you paint it THAT color?" discussions :rotfl: ... All the stuff that acquaintances wouldn't dare discuss, but family has no problem throwing in our faces ;))

His PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) is at the top and he'll be back to normal soon. :) He was truly touched by the support from his DIS/DVC family - it means a lot to him.

Be well, Bill!
