Thank you for checking in on our father, husband, mentor and friend, ‘Mike Guida’ . His wife, Liisa, is constantly at his bedside caring for him with her whole heart and posting many updates!
Mike had a stroke in the AM, at home in the Vail Valley. The Vail hospital did not have a Neurologist who could help dad. He was rushed to Swedish Medical Hospital where he is staying now. During his first week in the Intensive Care Unit, dad has had 4 surgeries. The first surgery removed one blood clot from his brain. The second removed a section of dad's skull to allow room for his swelling brain. For the last two surgeries, a breathing tube and feeding tube were put in. The doctors have discovered a large hole in his heart that allowed the stroke. He is staying at the Swedish Medical Center in Denver. Liisa is constantly at his bedside and will be living in Denver to stay close to him. There are a lot of opinions on how long it will take dad to recover, we are praying for miracles and trusting Jesus in His plan for dad. Your prayers, love, and phone calls are so well received. Thank you all❤️
PS: Michael is now at Craig Hospital in Denver, where we be until Michael can heal his brain and recover from the TBI- Traumatic Brain Injury
