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. Thank you for visiting.

On April 8th in the early morning, Randy suffered a massive heart attack. We were lucky in that everything aligned so that I was at his side when his heart stopped and could start CPR within seconds. EMS were amazing! They arrived on scene in seven minutes and worked to bring him back. By the time we reached the hospital, Randy had a pulse and was starting to regain consciousness. He was quickly evaluated in the ER and was taken to the cardiac cath lab for a stent. The artery that caused the arrest was 100% blocked. The procedure was successful. He is resting at Munson and has been communicating via text. We will have a clearer picture as the recovery progresses. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, Randy is not able to have visitors. So I am thankful for this space where all of our friends and family can send messages and check for updates. ❤️
