What happened?

On Sunday morning at around 5 a.m. Tim woke Leah up because he wasn't feeling well. He told her his back and teeth hurt and his arm was cramping. Within minutes he was unconscious and not breathing. Leah called for help and immediately began CPR. all in all, Tim's heart stopped 5 times that day and once early Tuesday afternoon.

As of Monday morning his heart was only functioning at 10% of what it should be.

Doctors at St. Vincent's in Billings found and removed a large blockage in his heart and installed 2 pacemakers and a pump to relieve some of the stress on Tim's heart which is severely damaged. 

Monday evening doctors informed us that Tim had no circulation in his left foot, but they immediately started him on blood thinners for what was presumably a clot. They are still monitoring him for more clots.

On Tuesday morning doctors informed us that Tim had developed pneumonia and they are considering flying him to Denver for more comprehensive treatment.
