Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

On Monday evening, September 17, Judy suffered a cardiac arrest at home.  Eddie did CPR until the ambulance got there and when she arrived at the hospital they started a process called therapeutic hypothermia.   They cooled her body to preserve brain function and forced all the blood to the brain. After 24 hours of cooling, they slowly warmed her  up over 12 hours.  On Wednesday morning, September 19, we rejoiced and thanked God as she opened her eyes.  Later in the morning they removed her ventilator and she is successfully breathing on her own.  She has a lot of resting/recovering to do and a number of tests going forward as well.
