Unitas' condition is still serious

March 08, 1993|By From Staff Reports

Former Baltimore Colts quarterback John Unitas, who underwent coronary bypass surgery early Saturday, remained in serious condition yesterday at University of Maryland Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Unitas, 59, had breathing difficulty and chest pains after knee surgery Thursday at Kernan Hospital and was taken to University of Maryland Medical Center, where he was operated on for an arterial blockage. It is normal for patients who have undergone heart surgery to be listed as serious shortly after the operation.

"The [Unitas] family thanks everyone for their continued concern and their prayers," hospital spokeswoman Linda Anderson said.
