Within weeks of getting back home, Kevin was back to work at St Andrew's Parks and Playground. Kevin worked there until September 2020. Kevin just started working for the Town of Mt Pleasant only 2 weeks before getting the call on October 13th that there was a donor for his new heart and kidney.
Within about 12 hours of receiving his new heart, the right side started to worsen and in an attempt to save his life the providers put him on ECMO. To be placed on an ECMO and survive once is a miracle... to be placed on the ECMO twice is a double miracle! Kevin received his kidney the following day but has encountered many setbacks along the way including Sepsis and Sepsis Shock. Due to all the blood pressure medicines, his new kidney has not started working and Kevin is on dialysis.
Kevin is currently in ICU and we are praying for a full recovery. We have seen one miracle after another as each day he gets a little stronger.
Kevin is a fighter and he will prevail, he has a lot to live for including his wife, Nancy, 6 children, 5 grandchildren, a wonderful family, many friends, and a ton of siblings. We know the road to recovery is going to be hard and it may be months before Kevin and his wife can return to work full time.
Your amazing help and donations will enable Kevin to fully recover without having to worry about finances. To anyone who does not have any money to spare, please don't feel compelled to contribute financially. Your prayers, messages of love, and support mean so much more than we could ever explain.
