Stan Haggett, Heart Surgery
|In May of 2010, just before his 90th birthday, Stan Haggett started feeling short of breath.
"We thought it was just indigestion," said his wife, Jane. Stan had never had problems with his heart before.
The condition continued for a few days and nothing seemed to help. The Haggetts called Stan’s primary care doctor, who advised them to go to Fletcher Allen.
In the Emergency Room, they learned that Stan had 90 percent blockages in his arteries and would need surgery.
He and his wife enjoy walking around their property -- a mix of
gardens and forest on 5 acres in Stowe -- and feeding the rainbow trout
in their pond. He also can be found riding his tractor mower.
