Last week Drea's husband Mike was rushed to hospital and in ICU for a few days , he had a heart attack and also renal failure. A valve in his heart also needs to be replaced. So a lot of systems went bad real quick, and now he is looking at open heart surgery most likely in the beginning of next week. They are still running all kinds of test on him.

Drea has been a long time member here at spine health and many have been blessed to get to now her. Also many have enjoy her humor,kindness, and her support of others. So now is the time for us to do what we do best, and what this site is about, praying them through, sending them good thoughts,

I will keep you all updated as I find out more, and also how surgery goes for Mike.

Love ya Drea..........boog

  • I went through a similar experience with my husband about 10 years ago except we never knew what started the whole mess. He spent 4 weeks on life support in ICU and they only gave him about a 30% chance of survival. He did beat the odds so miracles really do happen.

    I really feel deeply for what you are going through right now. The entire experience was very traumatic for me and my family and it really took us years to cope.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and I will keep checking for updates.
  • for sharing this. Please send her my best wishes. It's so scarey to have your husband so ill. I hope he has a quick recovery and that they both can enjoy the summer RVing soon.

  • Here is more prayer heading your way

  • Thank you all for these kind words and thoughts about my husband. He is still very ill, but they've goten to the bottom of his blood loss/problem, as he had an AVM in his abdominal area, which is similar to an aneurysm. Resolving this allows for the open heart surgery to be scheduled...soon.
    A very detailed opertion to repair/replace his mitral valve. So, I'm greatful for all of you praying him through, I came close losing him, he's still not out of the woods.....
