In November, Brad experienced severe abdominal pain. He went to the ER where they diagnosed him with gallstones. Rather than remove the gallbladder, they just removed the gallstones they could through a procedure called ERCP. It is thought that that procedure inflamed the issue and within days, he was back in the ER with signs of severe infection. It was then that they removed his gallbladder and upon removal, it fell apart in the surgeon’s hands because of the severe infection. Brad has been in the hospital more than he has been out since the beginning of this ordeal. Last week, he was put on a ventilator in ICU because of respiratory failure. Thankfully, he was able to be removed from the vent. He is currently dealing with severe sepsis, partial death of his pancreas and congestive heart failure. He is waiting for transfer to a long term care rehabilitation facility.
During this time, Brad has been unable to work and is looking at spending a couple months minimum in rehab with future surgeries planned. This has placed a huge burden on him and his wife. Any donation to help support them would be very appreciated. Brad has been so concerned this whole time about his financial responsibilities and it would be a huge blessing to help lighten his load.
