Grove resident Jim Gray was 74 years old when he began to feel unlike himself while out on a walk. After a visit to the local emergency room and a consultation with a cardiologist, he learned that he would soon be having open heart surgery.
“When I was out on my daily walk, my back started hurting” said Jim. “I came inside and told my wife that I was in pain and she took me straight to the hospital in Grove. Once I was examined, the doctor told us that he was going to send me to Oklahoma Heart Institute because I could possibly need open heart surgery.”
