Our dear friend Kris Eilers, Executive Director of the St. Louis River Alliance and clean water advocate, had a heart attack on February 4, 2018. She had a stent placed immediately after the attack and was initially recovering well.  As time passed she experienced pain and was in and out of the hospital multiple times with severe pain. Upon further investigation the doctors found a pseudoaneurysm on her aorta and as a result she will need long term medical care.  With or without a very complicated (10 plus hour) surgery, the healing process for this condition is typically very slow.  She will be going to the University of Minnesota Cardiac Center for further assessment and care.  At this time she is managing her pain, but her activity is limited (60-80% bed rest) and it is unclear when she will be able to return to work. She is very optimistic she will be able to heal and live an active lifestyle with the love and support of family and friends.  Please join us in helping our friend Kris - any help you can provide will go directly to medical and basic living expenses.

Here is an update from Kris. Thank you all for joining in to hep her. Please share and encourage your friends to join is. Stay tuned for an announcement of a special event - an evening of music in mid-April with a special guest,

"Hello friends . The cats out of the bag again... I'm sorry I have not given an update on my medical situation. Since my heart attack on Feb 4 I have been hospitalized several times due to severe pain, the last time revealing I have a pseudo aneurism on my decendng aorta. This may or may not have happened during the heart attack or procedure . Due to some anomolies in my anatomy, a surgery would be complicated. Luckily the doctors gave me time to rest in the hospital and didn't need an emergency surgery. I am home and being well taken care of by friends and family. I can feel progress and healing-
I am not able to be up and around much or go places.But I am very optimistic this "blip" will heal and am seeking outside expert opinions as well as learning how to manage the pain and shock with new techniques. I am humbled by the help and support i have gotten. It's been hard to know if or how to share this. Please believe with me for total healing, humour, laughter and love along this journey."
