John was taken to WRMC by ambulance on Tuesday, July 7th after experiencing a mild heart attack at home. He was admitted and they planned to keep him overnight to monitor the situation. John had some heart damage that led the doctors to believe that he had already had a mild heart attack in the past couple of weeks. Then shortly after midnight on July 8th he suffered a massive heart attack. His heart stopped completely and after performing CPR he was placed on a ventilator and sedated. He is currently in the Critical Care Unit and has been somewhat responsive as of this morning.
Currently their main concerns are the extensive damage to his heart, the acute kidney failure and the shock to his body from being resuscitated leaving him relying on the ventilator to breath.
Marilee, Jonna, Debra and his grandchildren would appreciate your prayers during this time. We will update this site as we learn more about his condition.
If anyone can come back from this it is JOHN BRODBECK!
