Ox Baker health update
Apr 24, 2013 - by Dr. Jerry Wiseman
Many sites are reporting that Ox Baker had a heart attack several days ago and is hospitalized but those reports are untrue. I have spoken to representatives for Ox Baker as well as Ox himself and he did not have a heart attack. Baker was taken to the hospital with shortness of breath and anxiety and at first doctors believed he did have a heart attack but tests later revealed that he did not.
Baker is being treated for fluid in his lungs and is resting comfortably in a Connecticut hospital and continues to undergo tests. It is believed he will be released from the hospital by the end of the week.
Ox Baker asked me to relay his gratitude for all the thoughts, prayers and well wishes and looks forward to seeing everyone at the Mid-Atlantic Legends Convention in Charlotte, NC in August.
