Ross was diagnosed with Wegener's Granulomatosis in 2016. He has been fighting a respiratory infection or something since November 2017. He's now currently in ICU at Abbott Northwestern in Minneapolis. On Feb 1, he went to the ER at Methodist thinking he was having a heart attack. There he was admitted, and they put him on a ventilator. He has a significant amount of fluid in the lungs. His heart is only pumping at 15% of normal. At Methodist  the doctors decided that they did not have enough support just in case things deteriorated, so he was moved to Abbott Northwestern so he could get ECMO (a machine that works as heart and lungs). He currently has heart failure. The doctors are determining whether it is likely to be long term or short term. Currently, he has a great team here that is working hard to figure out what is causing the problem. But it's a long road from here. Right now the doctors are limiting visitors, but will update when he can be visited. We are so thankful for the support we've received and continue to receive from our amazing friends and family.
