NSU Coach Leaves Hospital, Starts Teaching

August 23, 2012, 10:00 PM by Erich Schaffhauser

NSU Coach Leaves Hospital, Starts Teaching
ABERDEEN, SD -

It's out of the hospital one day and kicking off a national teaching tour the next.

Former Northern State University coach Don Meyer started teaching his leadership course Thursday in Aberdeen. Meyer wasn’t even out of the hospital 24 hours before it started.

Meyer never planned to miss the start of his leadership series.

"I feel great,” Meyer said. “I mean night and day difference from when I was going into the surgery in Minneapolis that's for sure."

Meyer left the hospital Wednesday for the first time in a month. He left with three replaced heart valves and a pacemaker.

He spent time hospitalized in the Twin Cities and Aberdeen. His rehab isn't over, but will continue at home.

"They trust me to do it. And it'll give me something to do, that's for sure. I can walk the block out here. It's about four-tenths of a mile. So that'll be good work," Meyer said.

And then there's the work he started Thursday teaching the leadership course. He's traveling to do so, making four stops, one as close as Aberdeen and one as far away as Mississippi.

Despite his on-going recovery, Meyer is optimistic he'll be able to stick to that travel schedule.

"Oh yes, I think so. Before I had the surgery every breath was a struggle. I had to think about every breath and now I breathe and it's just unbelievable," Meyer said.

Meyer thanks his doctors for their work making that possible and thanks people for their prayers.

"I think God can do a lot more too and all of that working together, it's sort of a miracle I'm even walking around," Meyer said.

Meyer has a little more time to recover before his Mississippi trip but not much. He's scheduled to be there early next week.
