Surgery put on hold for Burr
Hastings resident Scott Burr continues to show improvement a little at a time.
Burr suffered a heart attack two days before Thanksgiving and has been at United Hospital in St. Paul since. Doctors pronounced him brain dead at one point, but he woke up the next day and recognized everyone around him.
He had been battling pneumonia and his kidneys were failing. Those two concerns prompted doctors to delay the installation of a pacemaker and quadruple bypass surgery.
