Dennis Oshiro’s Emergency Medical Expenses

On Wednesday, March 28th, Dennis Oshiro suffered a massive heart attack and was medivac’d to Straub Hospital on the island of Oahu with his wife, Dino, by his side. Upon arrival he was placed on a ventilator. The doctor at Straub gave him 24hrs to live and advised his wife to take him off everything and call the family. They were told that even if they tried to do surgery to repair his heart, they didn’t think he would survive because his heart was too weak.

But, God intervened ! The family decided to go ahead with the surgery the following day. They did an angioplasty on Thursday, March 29th and were able to repair 2 of the 3 blockages to his heart. Currently, they are unsure how and when they will try to repair the 3rd blockage. He has been in icu all this time and doctors have been unsure of his recovery, but friends and family have been continuing to pray for a miracle. He also had a minor stroke and was unable to move his right side. He was taken off the ventilator and pain meds Monday April 2nd. He has been slowly responding to questions and slowly progressing each day. We are watching miracles happen !

The Oshiro family needs our help during this very difficult and stressful time. How can you help? One way is financially for medical bills, as we are unsure how long he will be there and what kind of therapy he will need to go through. Also, finances for lodging, airfare and meals. They also have a flower business on Kauai and because his wife, Dino, needs to be there with him, they are also concerned about the financial responsibilities of the business.

Please pray with us as we are continuing to trust and believe for complete healing and that their needs will be met financially as well as, emotionally. Praying for God’s peace, comfort, strength and wisdom. Thank you & God Bless !

4/13/18 Update:
Dino, Dennis and the Oshiro Ohana would like to say thank you to everyone that has donated and supported them in prayer. Dino says, they feel so blessed to have family and friends supporting them during this difficult time. They pray that God would bless each one and meet your every need, as you have helped to meet theirs.
Dennis has been able to take a few steps to the sink with his walker yesterday! He still has pneumonia, is not able to eat or drink yet as his throat muscles are still weak. They are working on a plan to send him to a rehab clinic. At this time it is still unknown how long they will be on Oahu. Thank you and God Bless!

My ohana really appreciates this❤️

Aloha family and friends! Please help my family out. We just had the scare of our lives. Being told that your dad has 24 hours to live is a thousand stabs to your heart. I can’t imagine how my mom felt braving those words, that her partner in life was coming to an end. Nobody enjoys a mother’s cry. I’m thankful my sister could fly me and my brothers up on the next flight out to be by our moms side. And I’m thankful I was on the island and close by (I live in seattle now, I was supposed to leave that day) Talk about being in the right place at the right time. God is GREAT, he knew I had to be home. I took this trip specifically to be with family. I’m glad my mother and my dads siblings agreed to try and save his life rather then pulling the plug. He’s a miracle man, god has a plan for him and sent him back to us and we are so happy for that.

Unfortunately the struggle is real and we are struggling financially to pay his diabetic meds, which is how this all started, he didn’t tell us he couldn’t afford his meds and just stopped taking them. Then he got sick caught pneumonia, had a massive heart attack, and also had a mini stroke
