On Thursday, December 12th, Steve started having tooth pain. He waited until Monday, December 16 to figure out what was needed for his tooth. Monday afternoon, he found out he needed a root canal, and had it scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday morning Steve passed out at home in the kitchen, after thinking he was feeling well enough to go to work before his appointment. When Raelin came to find him, he passed out again, and she called the ambulance. They took him to Willmar Hospital, to be transported by ambulance to St. Cloud Hospital. The doctors suspected he would need a pacemaker, because his heart would stop beating for 4.5 seconds. After meeting with many different doctors that were on his case, they decided to put a pacemaker through his groin.
