Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Please post any messages for Clint and his family as well as your favorite photos of Clint so that he can read and enjoy as soon as he is feeling better. Thank you for visiting.
While at work on Wednesday Clint suffered a severe Cardiac event. He was rushed to St Johns Hospital in Santa Monica. After determining the severity of his condition he was transferred to UCLA Medical Center for surgery. Clint underwent surgery to repair the damage to his aorta Wednesday evening and into Thursday morning. Post surgery he needed the assistance of a ventilator in order to breathe. The stress of the event caused his kidneys to need assistance as well so he started dialysis shortly after surgery. Yesterday morning Clint woke up and the ventilator was removed. He is now breathing on his own. He knows who he is and recognizes his family and friends as well. Clint is making wonderful steps in the right direction and the Dr. who performed the surgery refers to him as a miracle. He is currently at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in the ICU. Clint is currently limited to the number of visitors he can have. In the coming days we will let you know as visitation becomes more readily available.
