On Tuesday, July 11th, Tim had coronary bypass surgery and an aortic valve replacement. Everything went well and he was released to a rehab facility on Saturday, July 15th. He was looking forward to starting his therapy program so he could return home. On Sunday, July 16th, we received word that they had sent him back to Mercy Hospital for a probable stroke. He was then transferred to Abbott Northwestern because they have a stroke center and neurological wing. Although they are still assessing the damage, it is clear he will have issues with speech and likely full or partial right side paralysis. Tim has many family and friends in his corner, and we know he'd be very grateful for all the positive thoughts and prayers being sent his way.
