Once there, they did surgery to break up one of two blood clots that had traveled from his heart to his brain but could not complete the second one. He has right sided paralysis and cannot speak but he was alert. Then, they found fluid in his lungs so they are sedating him for a few days and he is currently on a ventilator.  Two valves in his heart are closed but no further surgery can be done until the other issues are cleared up first. His wife, Sharon, has been by his side continually. They are two hours from home and from the sounds of it, will be for several months until he can be stabilized enough to be moved to another hospital for the surgery he needs on his heart valves. Doc and Sharon have been married for 37 years and have 4 boys and 1 girl.  He is also a veteran of the U.S. Air Force. He only has Medicare with no prescription coverage and he is going to need a lot of medication after he recovers and his wife will not leave his side (understandably) so we are asking for monetary help for food and necessary items for her to continue to be by her husband's side. They have a dog that a dear friend is boarding for them while he goes through recovery but they still have a lot of bills that will need to be paid in their absence and are in danger of losing their home.
Please, we know there are still kind people in this world, help Wayne and Sharon Sarno! They are good people. Any donation, no matter how small or large will be very much appreciated. Thank you!
