NGT - Former Eagles LS Jon Dorenbos - Aortic Aneurysm

Now with the Saints; good thing the docs gave him a thorough physical. They caught it today and he's having immediate open heart surgery. Happy for him that it was detected before something fatal happened.

He was great on Americas Got Talent. Kids loved his magic. Hopefully he has a speedy recovery.
Yes, very happy news

that they caught it before something awful occurred. Scary none the less.
So escaping the Eagles saved his life in two ways

Scary. I hope it all works out for the best.

I had a splenic artery aneurism burst and almost didn't make it through. These things don't have symptoms and unless you find them by accident most people aren't that lucky.

Glad to hear that it was discovered and will be fixed before it burst.

Yes, and at this point, he'll get a minimally-invasive fix and be back playing in 6-8 weeks.
good news

Thank goodness it was caught in time. Hope he's OK. Prayers to him, and to you bc0312.
