Many thanks to all who have called, visited, and sent your well wishes and cards while Dennis has been recuperating.


What Happened?

Dennis was located at his home Friday October 21st by a friend. He was prone and disoriented. After being transported to a hospital he was intubated due to respiratory distress and critically low blood oxygen levels, and initially diagnosed with pneumonia. He then tested positive for Covid-19. Dennis experienced a loss of pulse while intubated and was rapidly resuscitated. Dennis was extubated after 15 days on a ventilator, and subsequently had a few complications which delayed his recovery. Many weeks of physical therapy have been necessary to regain strength and mobility.
