james Weiss road to recovery

As many of you already know, Jimmy has been hospitalized since February 22nd. He was not feeling well for some time only to find out he has a heart birth defect that could only be corrected by a valve replacement. Through testing he then found out he had a rare heart infection (Staphylococcus lugdunensis) this infection only has 100 other reported cases since 1982. He has had many complications from this infection that caused surgery to be postponed several times. Surgery has now been scheduled for March 2nd. This is a major surgery (valve replacement and reconstruction) that will take approx. 6 months recovery time. Let's take some stress off Jimmy and his family to keep his home and maintain his bills. Jimmy has helped many of us and even picks up his nephew frequently to visit his disabled dad in the nursing home, he has such a big heart (just needs a lil fixing) ❤
