He lost something like 60 pounds, plus most of his hair (and shaved the rest off), and he had Lasik, so he stopped wearing glasses. In the 2 or 3 years after his surgery, he reached the point where he could move around in certain circles pretty much anonymously–people who had known him for years didn’t recognize him.
Well, he had to add reading glasses 3 or 4 years ago (pretty much everyone does), but in the last couple of months, he’s had to go back to correcting his distance vision, as well. So he’s back to glasses. But otherwise, he still looks completely different than he did pre-heart attack. There’s a link here to a photo of him taken last week.
The before-and-after contrast cracks me up sometimes.
