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

DENNIS NEEDS PRAYERS AND SUPPORT
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.

ENT visit will result in another surgery to roto-route my sinus’s. Scheduled day is this coming April 22nd, can’t wait to get things cleared up and get rid of this obnoxious cough!

Other wise things are going quite well. Joanna and I are back in Durango and spring is springing all around us. Spending time now doing spring cleaning on the yard and just enjoying the warm sunny weather.

Ok, I think I got this. Here’s a long overdue update on my adventures through the end of ski season. I attempted to update earlier but was using a strange lap top and couldn’t finish an update without accidentally hitting some key and losing everything. Gave up in frustration until I got onto the regular computer again.

Right after my last update I had a blip and ended up in the UC cicu for 2 days. Seems I had a “perfect storm” of my drugs going haywire and another sinus infection hit me all at once. During my little “visit” we straightened everything out and did my annual heart cath and biopsy. They went in and checked both the left and right side of my heart and checked the pressures and vessels. Then did the usual biopsy taking another bite or two out of the right ventricle (hope they don’t eat it all). All came out with perfect scores, the heart is ticking away on all 4 cylinders! The rest of me is still playing catch up.

Went back to Telluride and worked a few more days then hit a patch of exhaustion. The sinus infection won’t go away, did a second round of augmentin (twice in 5 weeks). I checked the infection last week after finishing the last course of antibiotics and had a CT scan, the infection is still raging away, actually worse than the last scan in Feb. So heading to my ENT for more treatment and a plan to fix this.

On a good note, I got in 50 days of skiing and thoroughly enjoyed the last day at Telluride. It was a beautiful sunny and warm day for the closing shenanigans on the mountain. Now back in Durango and looking forward to gaining weight back and strengthening up again (during my feb/mar adventure I dropped to 148 lbs!!, now eating every calorie bomb I can get in my mouth!).

Later, and thanks for checking for my updates. I will do better now that I’m feeling better.

So glad you got that sinus infection quickly under control, Dennis. And to see you back on the slopes is the most beautiful sight ever!!! Love the photo! Enjoy the snow, as we know you will! We think of you and Joanna often and wish you the happiest of holidays coming up. We look forward to seeing you again in the New Year! Lots of love, Bebo and Dennis (and we know Nisty joins in these sentiments too - who, thanks in a big way to your and Joanna's warm hospitality and support, is happily thriving in Durango, finishing up her fall semester next week).
