On October 14th 2016, Dad had a medical issue and was rushed to St. Francis Medical Center. After a short stint in the ER he was admitted to the ICU. While in the ICU dad had a number of test done to try and figure out what caused the medical episode. While at St. Francis dad suffered a seizure which lead him to need more intense respiratory support. Even though the doctor and nurses took great care of him they could not provide the treatment he needed. Therefore, the decision was made to transfer dad to UNMC. Doctors are doing a number of tests to try and figure out what's causing dad's illness. Dad is currently on the ventilator and continues to have a number of test done. Right now it's a waiting came as the doctors continue to rule out what may be the cause.
Please know that the family has been extremely amazed and appreciative of all the thoughts, well wishes and prayers. There's a long road that lies ahead of us but with your support we are optimistic that we will get through this. Thank you again and please continue to check the site for any and all updates.
