Jeff’s Story

Site created on February 11, 2021

Welcome to Jeff's super fun and amazing CaringBridge website. (Okay, maybe not always super fun, but we are a family who loves to laugh and be positive, so that's what we choose to focus on! NO boo hoo-ing on this site please!)

The boy is having open heart surgery on Friday, March 5. Three procedures. Read The Backstory journal entry if you are curious to know more.

We are using this site to keep family and friends updated in one place. While Amy loves sending texts with emoji, there are SO many of you who love this crazy guy that I can't keep up with you all! ;-)

We appreciate your positivity, love, and encouragement. Thank you for visiting!

Journal entry by Amy Stoehr

Wow. 4 weeks ago today, Jeff was having his chest cracked open for what would end up being a 7-hour surgery. 💔

Today, 4 weeks later, he's joking about his belly and wandering around singing songs that worm in the brain and annoy others. On our walk last night it was snippets of Beer Barrel Polka. 🍻

So, he's doing well. Healing will take time. And he's well on his way. 🏃

Special shout out to the poker buddies - they decided a floral, heart-shaped pillow just would not do for Jeff so they special-ordered him an Atlanta Falcons PillowPet as a replacement, personally delivered by Dan
