Jim Ross posted the following in new blog over on his official website regarding the health status of Gerald Brisco:

“Gerald Brisco is feeling much better and after a “false start” regarding his lab work looks as if he will have his “valve job” for his ticker next week. In order words, Jerry Brisco is scheduled, as I write this, to have the small hole in his heart and the faulty heart valve repaired in Tampa next week. Jerry seems to have made a positive turn from the affects of his multiple strokes. The Brisco’s are tough and have always been winners and I can feel Jerry attacking this matter with the competitive edge with which he was born. Recovery time for all the native Okie’s health issues will likely be a couple of months, maybe a little more, but what some folks wouldn’t give to have a couple of months off and get away from the challenging, weekly travel schedule.”
