Max Maven to Undergo Heart Surgery Monday

Postby Richard Kaufman » April 21st, 2007, 9:58 am

Max Maven found out rather suddenly last Thursday that he needed to have bypass surgery. He's in Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, feeling pretty good.

His heart is strong and his doctors expect him to make a full recovery.

Unfortunately this means he will miss FFFF, the Collector's Convention in Chicago (where he was scheduled to speak), and also several performances of his one-man show which had been previously scheduled.

Max is online via his laptop while in the hospital and would happy to read your best wishes here.

Max -- As a guy with five stents, all I can say is all the B.S. you're going through is a lot better than the alternative would have been just a few years ago.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

This is a heck of a way to prove to your detractors what many of us have always known: That you do indeed have a heart.

Take care and well see you soon!

Max,

Hamburger Hamlet finally caught-up with you eh? I'm sure the day will come that Tommy's Chili Burgers will catch-up with me.

In all seriousness, I hope everything goes well and wish you the best!

You have NO idea who I am, but without even realizing it, you've been among my "magic-mentors" for years.

Your example has been stellar, Sir. You are one-of-a-kind. We need you, your brain, AND your heart, up and around a.s.a.p.

Here's predicting this thing is basically a formality and you'll breeze through it with the suavitee and aplomb for which you are reknowned.

With ALL Best Wishes for SPEED and EASE in recovery,
David Cox

Max, you gotta stop eating the Castle Chili at those board meetings!

Seriously, best of luck and care with your procedure. My dad had it (angiogram and plasty with stints) and was a new man. My father in law had a triple by-pass and was really a new man. Amazing recovery.

We will muddle through on Tuesday at the Castle perks but will be expecting you back for the next one. And it really will be about that fast.


Take care.

Max, RK telephoned this morning about your surgery. Best wishes for your complete recovery. All of us older than 50 hear the clock more loudly ticking these days. And perhaps more than ever, magicdom needs your continuing, vital presence and creative output. So, onward...and upward...

Dear Max,

I know your procedure is on Monday. Would you be available on Wednesday to do a show for our annual banquet? The fee would be our standard $50 & a meal, and you could room with the club treasurer. Please let me know ASAP.

All kidding aside, Charlene and I will be thinking of you, and wish you a speedy recovery.

All the best,

Chad

Hi Max:
Was looking forward to seeing you in Chicago and hearing another of your always interesting talks. Sorry to hear this had to be done, but they did the 'complete number' on me ten years ago and all's been well since; it's worth it. We'll all be thinking of you in Chicago and, who knows, I just might be prevailed upon to join Matt in that drink! Here's to a quick recovery... Cheers! -Jim Alfredson
