Mark Arvin partnered Gold Medal Winner Martha Butler at the International Ballet Competition in Jackson in 1990. He was a very nice dancer and partner and I certainly hope he is well soon.

I trained here as a medical student - they have some of the best heart surgeons in the world there ( DeBakey ) so he is in great hands. Good luck and I pray for the best.

There has been nothing in the Houston Chronicle, which is probably a Good Thing.

As Matthew said, Houston is the best possible place to have heart surgery (er...if you absolutely must have it, of course), so there's every reason to assume that no news is good news.

Mark is very dear to our family and he is one of my sister's best friends. This is been extremely difficult for all of us. My sister, her husband and their 5 week old baby are going to visit him next week. We are all praying for his recovery. He is too special to lose.

That truly is a sad story. To happen to anyone but what a shock - a fit 38 year old.

Well, TIRR is an excellent rehab facility (I volunteered there as a college kid and years later my mom was briefly a patient there), so there's always hope.

Wow, 38 years old, that's a shocker. Of course, folks have heart surgery for any number of reasons.

Dancer progressing slowly
Copyright 2003 Houston Chronicle

Quote:
Mark Arvin, former Houston Ballet principal dancer who has been comatose since December, is progressing slowly in a long-term acute-care facility affiliated with Park Plaza Hospital.

His partner, Kevin White, said Arvin is breathing without a respirator. He underwent surgery Wednesday; doctors inserted a shunt that they hope will release fluid from Arvin's brain and enhance his chances for recovery.
