Gary had open heart surgery on March 2, 2022 at Sanford Heart Hospital in Sioux Falls. They replaced his mitral heart valve, made repairs to his tricuspid valve, and made other repairs to attempt to fix his atrial fibulation during this procedure. The surgery went well, but Gary has experienced a few complications afterwards. Joyce is staying at the hotel that is adjoined to Sanford.
