Hello all, thank you all for caring so much about my health. I haven't written basically because I'm lazy. I am doing very well in fact so well the only time I really remember that I've gone through such a traumatic experience is when I look in the mirror and see my 11 inch scar. I cannot begin to explain how much all of the donations helped in getting through the months following my heart surgery and all the incurred costs. Thank you all from the bottom of my healthy heart. Since the surgery and going back to work only 3 months after the surgery I have undergone extensive testing including a trip to Stanford to get very little answers. The only thing that one of the Stanford doctors told me was that the medication I was taking for my ADHD may have been part of the problem. Since being told this I have tried to get more answers about the medication but I believe no one wants to tell me any definitive answers do to thinking I want to sue them. That would be the furthest from my mind I just would really like answers , but I'm afraid there will not be any answers coming anytime soon. I am now under the care of both a cardiologist and a hematologist. Check up appointments are now a normal part of my life and so far my life can go on as normal except for getting life insurance. This is now a problem until 2 years after the surgery then somebody might pick me up. Oh yeah I can't snowboard for a year either what a bummer. Again I want to thank you all and thank God for all your prayers and donations to make mine and my families life so much more trouble free and comfortable. I have never felt more loved in all my life. I love you all so much!
Hello Everyone, Mike and I so appreciate the prayers and support with meals, prayers and visits. Right now we are not sure why Mike developed Cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart). Concern is that it may be cancer worst case scenario or an autoimmune disease. We won't have more answers until mid-week. Mike is healing well and the children have been really patient and concerned about their Daddy. We're all trying to hold it together and praising God that Mike is still with us. His condition was very severe and could have cost him his life if we did not insist on seeing a cardiologist. Again, thank you for your prayers and support, Connie for the Lewis Family
