Go Jake Go!

Jake narrowly survived a sudden, unexplained cardiac arrest on November 28 that left him hospital bound for three weeks.
Now Jake is making remarkable progress (his sense of humor appears to be intact), but he faces significant neurological limitations. His recovery will require intensive speech, physical, and occupational therapy.
Erica and Jake are overwhelmed at the outpouring of love and support from friends and family all over the world; this fund was created at their urging and desire to help. Now that Jake is medically stable we have a clearer picture of what recovery will require, so we have been advised to raise the goal.
We are hoping Jake can get back to being the devoted husband, father, brother, son, and friend we know and love.
Go Jake Go!

Here's Jake on a medical flight to Atlanta where he will begin inpatient rehab.
