Haughton head football coach and athletic director Rodney Guin has plans for a little R & R on Saturday.
His remote and his favorite recliner.
That’s right, his.
Saturday morning, 29 days after suffering a near fatal heart attack, Guin, is scheduled to be released from the rehabilitation facility here on the massive campus at Baylor Medical Center. That’s when he’ll hop in a car with his wife, Tracy, and head back to Haughton.
“I’m killing the competition in rehab,” Guin joked. “Of course, the competition is mostly 80- and 90-year-olds.”
Doctors had expected three weeks of physical rehabilitation following his departure from a regular hospital bed, but Guin cut that time in half.
The 54-year-old’s rehab has included time on the treadmill, the bike and even a little yoga.
Wednesday, Guin took in some of the ACC Baseball Tournament on television and had a serving (or three) of the ice cream balls he’s so desired.
“Just another in the long line of miracles,” Tracy Guin said.
With strict orders to still use his walker, coach Guin displayed his physical progression and the presence of his popular sense of humor, by carrying the walker as he easily moved about his room.
