Captain Tony Admitted for Heart Condition

The Key West Citizen reports that one of Jimmy’s closest friends in Key West, Captain Tony has been hospitalized again: "More tests for Key West legend" – Capt. Tony readmitted to Miami Heart Institute

Doctors continue to be concerned about "Capt. Tony" Tarracino’s heart, and have sent him back to a Miami hospital where he was last week to undergo further testing.

An ambulance on Tuesday took the 91-year-old "man about town" to the Miami Heart Institute at Mt. Sinai Medical Center. There, doctors may repeat an angioplasty procedure they did last week, said Tarracino’s wife, Marty.

"He came home on Wednesday as planned, but then was readmitted to Lower Keys Medical Center on Friday," Marty Tarracino said Tuesday morning. "Doctors want to redo the procedure in Miami, and it gets a little complicated for him because we’re dealing with heart and lung problems, and not just the heart."
