Yesterday afternoon Eddie was experiencing chest pains. After it didn’t get any better, he went to the hospital where they discovered he needed immediate heart surgery. If he hadn’t gone to the hospital he would have had a massive heart attack. He is now resting comfortably but is being monitored and is expected home tomorrow.
