Hope for Mike

As many of you know, my uncle Mike, had his heart transplant on 9/4/18. He finally returned to Rochester, from WestChester, a few weeks ago. One major complication that Mike has had is with his right leg, where the ECMO machine was placed. His artery has continued to collapse and severely bleed, and require multiple blood transfusions, and emergency surgeries. On Wednesday, March 26, my uncles artery bled out, at Rochester General Hospital, causing him to go into cardiac arrest from the blood loss. The hospital performed CPR for hours on my uncle, performed bedside surgery, and have transported him to the MICU. The doctors are predicting a poor prognosis, maybe hours to a few days. At this time, we are asking for your prayers for my uncle and for our family during this very difficult time.
