    Health Update For Jeff Quinn (Gunblast Magazine)

    Lots of folks in all facets of the shooting industry, manufacturers, distributors, ammo companies, and too many shooters and hunters to list, follow Jeff's Gunblast page, and I follow him on Facebook.

    Jeff has been battling heart related illness(es) for a while and today his wife Souette Quinn posted the current situation as it stands on Jeff's Facebook page.

    If you'd like to send prayers, NOW is the time..

    Quote from Souette:

    JEFF QUINN HEALTH UPDATE- August 21st, 2019
    Good afternoon all....this is Souette Quinn...Jeff's 1st wife as he likes to call me. I'm using Jeff's photo memory to post under.
    We have received literally hundreds of inquiries and words of support for Jeff. They have not gone unnoticed although Jeff is not accessing any media of any type at this time or taking calls/messages or visitors.
    Here's the lowdown:
    1) Tests confirm that Jeff DID have 2 major heart attacks on Monday. (That's 7 since last Fall.)
    2) The increased fluid in his lungs contributing to the severe pain of suffocating along with the horrible heart/chest pain was all a manifestation of his heart failure.
    3) Blood Pressure was off the charts as was poor oxygen levels.
    4) He made it to St. Thomas West in Nashville via ambulance / life flight.
    5) He has undergone numerous tests/procedures with support of 3 different teams of specialists. Nurse teams are stellar.
    6) He will be in the hospital several more days.
    7) He's totally exhausted.

    As of today, the teams have informed us of all the physical conditions weighing over Jeff.
    As they speak of his current status, ALL of them follow their report with the word "BUT".
    Example: "His kidneys are functioning BUT...his numbers are better!"
    "Blood pressure is still high BUT it's coming down and looks good."
    "This is your current heart condition BUT meds will can likely support your recovery"
    You all get the idea.

    Friends...I have NO idea how this man is still alive today. I swear, I have no vision at all what his purpose is to remain on this Earth. Even the Doctors just look at him and shake their heads with one saying "I can't believe you're still alive!"
    Jeff's response is: "I have a lot of good people praying for me."
    Whether you are the praying kinds or just send him good vibes, or blessings of your own accord....he feels them. He's living them.

    His biggest worry right now is "letting folks down".
    He has commitments to the industry he loves and he's agonizing over cancelling because "I hate to let people down."
    He has church and family commitments and again, he wants to be part of that without letting folks down by not doing his part.
    But that's just him. I just acknowledge his concerns and tell him I understand.

    Although this little report sounds kinda dark and bleak, I'll leave THIS with you just so you know that maybe 5% of the typical Jeff Quinn is shining through this health mess:
    Today, Jeff was receiving a full "echo" exam of his heart to determine current level of functioning to help guide which path is next for him.
    The x-ray technician was a HUGE male that probably stood 6'6" and over 300lbs. Big guy!
    The tech sat beside the bed with the warm jelly, wand and t.v. screen. Jeff was silent with his eyes closed tolerating the session.
    The tech asked Jeff to roll to his side as he was going to place the wand underneath Jeff's breast. Jeff complied.
    A few minutes passed and Jeff broke the silence and asked "Do you do this all day long?" The tech answered "yes".
    Jeff said "That's a good trade!" Tech answered "Yes."
    Jeff asked, "Do you do this to women too?" Tech answered "Yes."
    Jeff said, "My guidance counselor in high school never told me about THIS trade."
    Jeff said, "You do this all day and get paid AND get to see women's titties?! Tech answered yes as he grinned.
    Silence. Jeff closed his eyes and I heard him mutter "OH MAN!"

    At that point, I just shook my head and left the hospital to come home for the farm chores and such. I will return to Jeff this afternoon and remain the duration of his stay.

    Thanks again to all of you who have taken time to reach out in support of Jeff and the family.
    The next post on this page will be from Jeff in the near future.

    I first met Jeff & Boge over 10 year ago. We are members of a group who gather up down in Arkansas for a weekend of shooting, swapping tales and some picking and grinning. Both are fine men I'm proud to call friends. Jeff has been going through it for sometime with his health. I was unaware of Boge having some issues start up. I'll be keeping them in my prayers.

    Never give up. My BIL went through all of this and had stents, defibrillator/pacemaker, by-pass, and finally a new heart. He seemed to be getting worse all the time. Today he's back to his old self (other than taking a handful of pills each day). Once in a while a good medical team can perform miracles. There just might be one waiting for Jeff. I wish him the best.

    Jeff's heart and kidney problem stem from bad diabetes. He is a great guy in all respects.
