Dave had surgery on 11/4/15. He had two VADs (heart pumps) implated. The pumps are pumping the blood through his heart so his heart does not have to work. He is doing extremely well considering the severity of the surgery. He has begun physical therapy to regain his strength and is officially on the Heart Transplant List. He will remain hospitalized for another 2 weeks. Once he heals from the VAD surgery (apx 3 months) he will be an active heart recipient. Our deepest thanks to everyone that has been praying for Dave. He is such a strong person despite all he has been through.
