Hello everyone. As many of you know my dad John Davis AKA Ricky had to have a Quadruple Heart Bypass on Tuesday 11/14. He was having very bad chest pains a few days before and went to Renown Urgent Care. They ran an EKG showing he had a heart attack, they then sent him to the emergency room immediately. Monday 11/13 they put him in surgery hoping to install stents to repair his arteries. Three of his arteries were 80-100% blocked. One was very thin.
The day came for his surgery. Family gathered around that morning. The surgeon said that he was the worst he's ever seen in the 38 years and that it amazed him my dad was still alive. He went back for surgery which took about 5 hours to complete. The day after, complications started to arise. He has been on the ventilator for about 3 days now and should be on it at least a few more days. His motor skills have been going in and out and his kidneys are not working properly. The doctors are keeping him sedated since he has been irritated and uncomfortable.
My dad had just changed jobs and does not have insurance until January 1st. All of the bills that my dad covered now falls on my moms shoulders for at least the next 6 months. My dad will not be able to work for a minimum of 3-6 months so her income is the only one they have right now. His medical expenses will be very costly and once he is released from the hospital he will then have to start Cardiac Rehab and have to start seeing a Cardiologist.
Anything will definitely help in this time of need and be very appreciated. Our family cannot wait to see him getting back to restoring cars which is his passion and hobby. Please keep him and my family in your prayers!!!
