David has had a long battle with diabetes which has caused numerous health issues over the years, with the main one being heart disease.
David had a quadruple bi-pass surgery in April of 2014 and in July of 2014 he found out that 3 occluded, which put him in Congestive Heart Failure.
Since the summer of 2014, he has had several surgeries and has been hospitalized a few times, including his daughter’s 5th birthday, his son’s 18th birthday and most recently, Christmas of 2020.

The adventure continues – 5/20/2021
The first several weeks at home were really good, followed by some not so great weeks.
On 5/20 we were back in the ER and found out about Orthostatic hypotension. When he would go from laying to standing his blood pressure dropped dramatically and he was getting light headed and unbalanced.
4 days in the hospital reducing medicine and adding compression socks and a binder around his abdomen.
Back home now, still the same issues – lots more tests coming up in the next few weeks.

Today is one month from the surgery date and all is excellent! David has been home recovering for 2 weeks now.
The first two weeks included numerous appointments at the Mayo Clinic with every other day blood work and a weekly procedure that shows his heart is doing well with his body.
Seems we are moving to the next stage with less daily appointments. This week we have only 2 days!
He has been cleared to start driving in 2 weeks and to start cardiac rehab.
Thank you all for your support, it was a rocky start but we are on a great path now.
