Feinstein on the mend

July 02, 2009

Here's the latest from John Feistein's blog regarding his heart bypass surgery:

"This morning, we talked to John from his hospital bed at the Washington (DC) Hospital Center. It was our first conversation with him since Sunday. His voice sounds stronger than we anticipated and he says, other than some chest soreness, he feels pretty good; though he does tire easily. The end result was open heart surgery and there were seven blockages they had to address."

Feinstein, a Golf Digest contributing editor, possibly could be released from the hospital Thursday night, the blog said.
