Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.... Here is David's story: At age 11, he had open heart surgery due to him being born with Aortic Stenosis. He knew he would be facing another surgery later in life, just didn't expect it at 50. On May 6, 2020 David had his 1st appointment with Dr. Rodney Harrison, who would be his new cardiologist. Little did we know this would tailspin into a round of tests only to determine he would need surgery by the end of this year. He has had an EKG, TEE and CT of his heart. These test determined he is in the 'severe stage' of Aortic Stenosis. Dr. Harrison has been great unlike the other heart doctor he saw on a regular basis that just listed to his heart through his stethoscope and sent him on his way. We have decided to travel to the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, OH for the surgery - after all they are the BEST, comes highly recommended by Dr. Harrison and our insurance is accepted there! Please be in constant prayer for us as we get ready for this stressful journey. Pray that a peace will overcome us and we will feel His presence. Pray also for the doctors to know exactly what to do and we have no complications. We know it's all in God's hands and we are trusting Him every step of the way. We appreciate your support, words of hope and encouragement. Thank you all for your love, concern and help in the coming months. Thank you for visiting.
