Pete Vels Prayer & Praises for Pete

On Wednesday,  March 23rd,  Pete was enjoying a day of skiing at Breckenridge with his son, Jonathan, and friend, Matt.  At the time he was by himself, and was found down on the slopes. He was immediately rushed to a hospital in Frisco, where he presented with stroke symptoms. They were able to give him TPA (a clot busting drug) and then he was airlifted to St. Anthony’s Hospital in Denver. He went immediately into interventional lab, where they discovered he has a dissection of the left carotid artery, which then made a clot that went to his brain. They spent five hours trying to put in stents, open up vessels and break up the blood clot. Unfortunately, several areas of the brain went without blood flow for an extended period of time, and the stents were not successful. Now we are in the difficult process of waiting and seeing what happens. They say this will be a long journey and are hesitant to give any long term out looks. Follow along for updates on Pete’s progress!
