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 August 2nd I was admitted to the hospital at Abbott Northwestern due to complications from on going heart failure. On August 11th I was officially placed on the national heart transplant list class 1A. I will be staying here at the hospital until a heart for me is found. I was informed it could be as little as a few weeks or as long as 6 to 7 months on the longer end. While I am here I'll be in the ICU the entire time so I can receive the best care to keep  healthy enough for the operation when that time comes. I am up and able to walk around just rather limited as to how far I can go due to being hooked up to monitors and an IV.  I will try to keep providing updates as the days go by to help provide friends and family informed as I have already received a wonderful amount of support and encouragement from family and friends. Thank you!
