Ed Mason Recovering from Heart Attack

Postby jon » Thu Oct 04, 2012 11:37 am

Legendary Newsman Ed Mason is recovering comfortably at home after a very serious heart attack on Saturday night. Three arteries were 100%, 90% and 80% blocked, respectively. Only the completely blocked artery was cleared Saturday night; the other two awaited his heart's recovery and were not cleared until Tuesday afternoon.

Ed reports "A cardiac ultrasound confirmed no significant damage after the heart attack. With no complications evident, I was released to continue recuperating at home. My cardiac rehab begins in a month and I should be able to return to work at that time too."

"Work", of course, refers to the Morning News Grind at CHED that begins with an alarm clock ringing before 3:00 a.m. so that Ed can his part of the Reporting required for quarter hour Newscasts on CHED, and even more often on iNews880. During Morning Drive.

Everyone I've talked to wishes Ed a speedy and trouble-free recovery!
