While you didn't say anything factually wrong here, I wonder if the person that wrote this story understands that Price Phillip is their grandfather. It seems like if you understood that you would have added it in somewhere.

I'm sure the whole family has been there a few times. Who wouldn't go visit their father/husband/grandfather when they are stuck in the hospital...Especially On Christmas. I'm sure he will be just fine. For a man like that the worst of it is prob having to stay put so long. He's always on the go even though he's in his 90s now.

there's really no reason, short of complication" for him to be there more than 48 hours. i've had this procedure twice. both times i was in for less than 48 hours. the biggest concern is your femoral artery. they want to make REAL sure it doesn't come open.

It is rather a long stay after a stent surgery but the man is 90 years old--certainly better to be cautious. The reports in the UK say it is unusual for royal family to visit members of the family who are hospitalized, in part because they do not wish to cause a commotion for other patients. The queen seems to have come once with her children yesterday and today was a day for grandchildren. Spouses have not accompanied them, probably to keep it as low key as possible. Hoping it's a speedy recovery.

Prince Phillip is a VERY lucky man, health wise. He had stents placed in his heart BEFORE he had a heart attack. I don't believe the outcome would have been as wonderful if he did have a heart attack at the age of 90. God Bless you, Prince.

At 90, any surgery is iffy even if he is in good shape -- for his age. I'm sure everyone would rather have the Prince in hospital for a longer stay than deal with any complications. His heart condition has been around for a while. Bodies just wear out even in a family which has longevity in its genes.

nice. i like the seats in their cars. very slick. very non-flea nesting, and bug repellant. that is important, considering their weak genes and inbred blood lines. it's important to be careful and safety on every level.
