On June 3rd, 2017 Donny Chomic passed away. Donny was the life of our family. The comedian, the dancer, the SMILE! Losing him is the hardest thing we had to go through. March 27th he had a stroke and a TIA May 2nd. He was recovering and making progress slowly he was finally able to remember things. He had a mild stroke on Monday And his wife called an ambulance. They admitted him for stroke symptoms. The Neurologist said he didn't have a stroke but saw the growth in his nasal cavity that's been there a year. He was supposed to have had that taken care of. He had to see an ENT Doctor for a biopsy and said if it was an easy out he would get it. The surgery went well no excessive bleeding so he was discharged that night. For the first time he went home, had dinner, and his sister and great niece came over. He was like the Donny from before the strokes joking, laughing, smiling, etc. Everyone was so excited. Thursday was another good day until 3:30. He went to the bathroom and fell against the door. His wife had to wedge her way in. He was having another major stroke. She called the ambulance again. The hospital could not give TPA because of his surgery the day before. They bay flighted him to Northside Hospital where he went down fast. He could barely talk, but he could. Friday evening he started choking. They intubated him. They did a stat CT. He had severe fluid build up on his brain. If they didn't get him into surgery to relieve it, he would have died that night. So they did the surgery but he never woke up that morning. His vitals went crazy, they got them under control. Everyone was able to see him. They did a pupil test and called the Dr. We knew he was gone. He was pronounced brain dead and put on Life Support. Family came up to say goodbye. Around 11 it was decided he would not want to live like that so they ended the Life Support. He was surrounded by family and all his loved ones. He was not alone. This process is not cheap. Any money donated will be put towards funeral expenses. We want to help take the burden of money off his wife and children. Anything will help. And we can't thank everyone enough. The funeral for Donny will be held at Dobies on Hicks Rd and Hudson Ave Sunday, June 11th at 1pm. We hope to see all loved ones, friends, and anyone who would like to come there. Thank you!
