First, I want you all to know how much it means to me to see the caring and support and prayers offered for my son. I am truly grateful and humbled. Thank you and may God bless each and every one of you.
My son was transferred from our local hospital to the best hospital in our State where he is receiving excellent care.
He tested negative for Covid.
He is being treated for fluid in his lungs.
At the time a couple of years ago when he had a stroke, there were found arteries that were blocked and three stents were inserted. Those are still functioning perfectly, but the need for several more were now found and more stents were added.
Duane underwent surgery last evening to remove a blood clot in his leg. This morning finds him alert and able to answer questions put to him. An Electrocardiogram is scheduled momentarily. The doctors are closely monitoring his heart.
Duane's Aunt has worked at this hospital for years and is able to translate 'doctor speak' for the rest of us. My youngest son keeps me informed.
We realistically do not expect Duane home any time soon. There is not a quick fix for his heart condition. But we are all keeping the faith and going forward with positive attitudes. He is in the best possible place for receiving the best care.
Thank you all.
