On July 26, 2012, Kathy survived a heart attack requiring a triple bypass. On the morning of July 11th, 2017, Kathy was rushed to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tucson.
During her stay we discovered that she had another heart attack, leaking mitral valve, several mini strokes, had fluid in her lungs, and kidney issues needing continuous dialysis. On July 15th, she was sedated and intubated to help her healing process.
After spending 2 weeks in ICU at St. Joseph's she was transferred to Banner UMC so they could provide the specialized cardiac care she needs. As of July 30th, Kathy is in a very critical situation. She will need to have mitral heart valve surgery within the coming week.
We appreciate all the prayers, love, and care. Kathy has touched so many lives and we know that people are very concerned and want to help. Her family has now turned to GoFundMe for anyone who wishes to help support her medical treatments and expenses.
