The Nation

April 22, 1985

Artificial heart recipient William J. Schroeder and his family hung out the "Gone Fishing" sign at their Louisville, Ky., apartment, and "he caught a couple of fish" at a nearby lake, his son, Mel, reported. Meanwhile, doctors at Humana Hospital Audubon have inserted a device in the most recent Jarvik-7 heart recipient, Jack Burcham, to help connect him to a kidney dialysis machine, if that becomes necessary, because of a "renal insufficiency," a hospital spokeswoman said. No change was reported in the condition of Murray P. Haydon, 58, the other mechanical heart patient still under care at the hospital.
