Family and friends of Dennis Huis are raising money to pay for uninsured medical expenses associated with transplantation.

Dennis has led an adventurous life and is currently facing his biggest one yet. Having dealt with atrial fibrillation issues for the past 10 years, he has now been diagnosed with a rare form of Amyloidosis causing congestive heart failure. Unfortunately the only cure is a heart transplant, since there’s no artificial means to keep him alive with his condition.

Not much to add, things continue to progress. I’m getting stronger and actually developing some muscle definition, I’ll actually have legs again, not sticks! Heading to Kalamazoo next week to visit with aunt Sue, my sister and brother will be there as well. It will be great, but short, I’ll get in a quick visit with old friends from college and the old neighborhood. Should be fun.

Just got back from my May biopsy, things continue to go well. The biopsy came back as 0 rejection again! They are continuing to reduce my Prednisone, thank goodness! I’ve continued to walk and do my rehab, it’s going well and I feel stronger and better everyday. The transplant team are very happy about my progress and how good I feel, they love to see successful outcomes to all their work.

I’ll continue to rehab, can’t wait to get out on a real bike on real roads. Soon! I’ve posted some pictures from my visit to Estes park and Denver. The new family’s are out and about.
