The outlet recently spoke with Thomas, and he reportedly appeared alert and coherent, saying he believed that doctors had implanted three stents in his blood vessels.
He was scheduled to head into the OR at 7:30 AM.
The surgery was needed after Thomas experienced significant damage to his heart due to a heart attack he had about one week ago.
Thomas told the outlet on Tuesday, “They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed.”
Thomas is reportedly still in the hospital, and it’s unclear when he’ll be released.
