Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. This will help out mom/Marie manage the amount of calls that she needs to make to keep everyone current as Dad gets better.
As many of you already know, Dad went into the intensive care unit at Palomar Medical Center on Sunday, May 20th, after he started feeling a lot of pain in his chest and back. He was diagnosed with a tear in his aorta, and the initial hope was that it would heal itself. A couple of days later, though, Dad and Mom, in consultation with the great doctors at Palomar, decided to undergo an operation to insert a stent into his aorta. The successful operation took place on Wednesday the 23rd, and now Dad is in the healing process.
We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
