Greg has been receiving treatment for Heart Failure for the past 6-7 years. He first had a defibrillator placed and then it was upgraded to a pacemaker/defibrillator with one lead, then with 2; He had been getting along well until this last event. Last Sunday evening the device started doing its job and fired to get him back into rythum. It happend again on Tuesday and it turned into "a storm". The Care Team at LifeCare sent Greg by Air Ambulance to Altru and Altru sent him by plane to Mayo. I got to ride along and the girls followed. That brings me today 9/22/16.
Greg is sedated to keep him at rest which is good for his heart.
