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.
Orville had a heart attack on Monday, Dec 14th and is now in the hospital at Essentia in Fargo. He is unable to undergo open heart surgery because of his previous lung cancer and resulting cancer treatments. The doctors believe that the best path forward for him is to have an angioplasty procedure this afternoon to place multiple stents in his arteries. This is a risky procedure for him, but the best and only way forward at this point.
His wife Pam asked me to start this website as a central place for friends and family to check for updates on Orville, as well as a place for everyone to send wishes of love, hope, and encouragement. As you can imagine, it has been overwhelming to navigate the medical information at the same time as getting the word out to their large circle of loved ones. We will post updates on Orville's condition on this website. Please share this website to help get the word out to everyone. And most importantly, please keep Orville, Pam and their family in your prayers as they navigate this health crisis. Thank you.
