Allen was flown to Sioux Falls from Platte. He passed out Wednesday and was taken to the ER in Platte. He is in ICU on maximum life support, he has also started dialysis, due to no kidney functions. The doctors believe that due to an untreated infection in his body that caused his kidneys to shut down. During this time he continued to take his heart medicines, which then built up in his system. Causing complications and his blood pressure and heart rate to drop dangerously low. I sit here in this room and still I am overwhelmed!
