ROD CAREW'S FIGHT
Quick note on this Christmas Eve morning and a message from us here at BYB to the great Rod Carew and his family... Get Well Soon, Mr. Carew.
As we wrote last week in our piece ROD CAREW TO HAVE TRANSPLANT, Rod Carew needed a transplant of a kidney and a heart. It was a huge undertaking and something that an older person sometimes will not come out of. I am happy to report that Rod did, and he's doing well... the operation was a success.
MLB.com writes this:
"The entire Minnesota Twins family is happy to report that Rod Carew had a successful heart and kidney transplant surgery today at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, and is expected to make a full recovery," the Twins said in a statement on Friday. "After a 13-hour procedure that started shortly after midnight Pacific time, Rod is resting in recovery. We ask that all of Twins Territory and the entire baseball community keep Rod, his wife Rhonda, and the entire Carew family in your thoughts and prayers as Rod recovers."
I hope the guy continues to do well and the Carew family can have a wonderful holiday!
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy New Year!
