Source While the jokes are making the rounds around the country, it is really nothing to joke about. The man is 78 years old and there is a pellet lodged in his heart (not in the heart chambers) which has led to him having a heart attack. He went for a cardiac catheterization this morning and had a stent put in. Doctors are not planning to remove the pellet at this point. The man was moved back to intensive care and is on heavy doses of antibiotics (for possible infection) and he could potentially develop other serious problems. My prayers are for him and his family, that they may come to know the Lord through this, if they don't know Him already. Also, consider the possibility - what if he should die? This could be ruled as an accidental homicide. Not too great for the VP of these United States and could literally be a shot heard around the world. Please keep this thread serious. It really is a serious matter - the man may be literally fighting for his life.
