Robin Williams/Heart Surgery

I had heard he cancelled a concert on monday due to shortness of breath. I was thinking about him this morning and read on MSNBC the he will be undergoing heart surgery for aortic valve replacement.
What an extremely talented man, I wish him well.

Yes, he is!! I hope it all goes well. With the things we can do now days, it's ALMOST minor surgery.

Saw the report on this morninig's news. He's going to have the same surgery Mrs. Bush (Barbara) just underwent. Hard to think of ANYTHING that can slow him down. I wish him well.

"Almost" only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades!

Any time anesthetic is involved, it is (or should be" considered MAJOR surgery. For may folks, the anesthetic is more dangerous than the operation.

I wish him well. He is extremely talented, funny, and from what I understand, also a nice guy. My cousin and her daughter were extras in Mrs. Doubtfire, and said he was truly a laugh a minute.

I told Ken that Robin Williams is the only man I'd ever consider dumping him for. LOL. I sure hope he does well and gets back on his feet soon.

That is so funny, I tell my husband the same thing only for a different entertainer (Garth Brooks).

I agree, I think my favorite movie(s) of his is Awakenings and Patch Adams.
It's amazing how such a funny man can act so well in some serious roles.

For me it was Neil Diamond - until he got fat, bald, and lost his voice. Nah, I think I would still go for him!

I really hope Robin Williams does well with this surgery and is able to go on giving us the wonderful entertainment we have come to love and expect from him.
