For those of you who know Jim, you know he unfortunalty is no stranger to heart related problems! Thirty-two years ago he had is first mini heart attack at age 38. More recently, 18 months ago, he needed to have 5 stints pleaced to clear some major blockages. However, 18 months later Jim again had started to feel some pressure in his chest. Upon some recent visits to the hospital - the doctors have decided it would be best for Jim to undergo a triple bypass surgery. If you know Jim, he refers to this as "the zipper". He also said, that he can't wait to show the grandkids the scar and tell them how he survived a BIG bear attack! The family wanted to start this site so that we can keep you all informed and up to date on his surgery and recovery. Thanks in advance for your prayers!
