Sad News



I just got word that this afternoon, 5 August 2010, Bill Walker, friend and associate member of The Rochester Rams died in Rochester General hospital.

Bill was in considerably good health and just underwent hip replacement surgery at Newark-Wayne hospital on 27 July 2010 at 11:30 AM. At midnight on Sunday, 1st August, Bruce C. (his husband) received an emergency call from Newark-Wayne hospital because his heart stopped beating.

He was de-fibrillated and moved to intensive care, then transported to Rochester General Hospital, for a heart catheterization and a defibrillator-pacemaker implant.

Bill had repeated episodes of a dangerous heart rhythm called "ventricular tachycardia" which required many de fibrillations, strong IV meds and other assistive machines to reverse. He was moved to the Medical Intensive Care Unit at Rochester General in very critical condition.

The condition of his heart arteries was worse than originally thought, and unfortunately surgery or stents would not help.

I'm sorry to hear it. I will keep Bill, his family and friends in my thoughts this week.
