As many of you know George is a very private person. In September his health started to change. He was first diagnosed with high blood pressure and within a few days he was suffering from edema. It was very difficult to keep his blood pressure in check and he ended up having 3 hospital stays. During the second stay it was determined that he was in renal failure and had to start dialysis. He is in the process of getting on a transplant list at the UofM Fairview for both kidney and pancreas. He has dialysis 3 days a week for 4 hours a time. April is staying home and helping him with whatever he may need.
