The Story

On February 27th 2017 around 8pm my life permanently changed. I went in the Hospital that night unknowingly with the onset Congestive Heart Failure. I swelled with so much water, that my pours were literally leaking. That was my body’s way of alerting me to do something or it was going to quit. This form of Congestive Heart Failure took my hearts ability from its normal 55% to between 10% and 15% working ability. My Doctors are alarmed at 35% because anything under that is grounds for a major operation. There were two procedures done to get me to where I am now. A Heart Catheterization Procedure was done in a lifesaving effort to see what my heart looked like and to see what its ability was. The second procedure was done to open a passage for blood circulation by way of a Stent there were four blockages and three are being managed with medications. But this ordeal is not over by a long shot. My heart is at this very moment working at 15% and this puts me in line for a defibrillator and a Pace maker implants, that is the potential bad news.

Look I am blessed, we caught allot of things in time. This should have been so much worse and thank God it wasn’t. Earlier I said the phrase, “potentially bad news,” here is the great news, my Heart did not receive the expected damage that others in my condition would have. Thank God for so many of your prayers and the awesome show of support from friends, family and an awesome medical staff from the Augusta VA hospital, I have a good fighting chance, and a Golden opportunity to recover on a greater scale. So my Doctors have planned a regiment that will give me a good chance at recovery and a stronger heart.  Through medication, a good diet, exercise, and monthly if not weekly checkups, we will see how the regiment goes “God willing.” If it goes well, there will be no need for a Pace maker or what have you.

But my medical condition and the regiment will not afford me to work normally, and this affect my work and the funds that would have been made to help these medical, logistical and transitional issues. The recovery which will take 9 months, this journey will be long with many changes. There will be interruptions and permanent sweeping change of everything I do. I now have to change the way I do everything. I need to lessen the financial burdens but the simple truth is “I don’t have it...” I am blessed the Augusta VA has lessened the financial blow, but the truth is I still have at least 7 to 8 months to go, and another procedure coming. My VA Medical bill is over 5000.00 and growing thank God my a few friends, family mainly my Sister and Mother have been kind enough to help me through the starting transition. But we have used up what we had financially getting started. Any relief of Medical Bills, nutritional needs, Transitional and Logistical needs in the way of donations will be humbly and gratefully appreciated. It is in times like these, where the love and kindness of the Village and its Interdependence along with God’s blessings that truly makes the difference in situations like these. I am blessed that I have friends and a community that I can go to. Whatever help, prayers donations will be very much appreciated. I am starting out with a manageable goal of $5500.00 on the site. Whatever you feel lead to do, I am grateful for anything you can do. Bless You and thank all of you in advance, and I will be posting my progress and advancements on a weekly basis, From this point forward this will no longer just be my journey, “It will be our journey together whatever the outcome is… Again thank you, thank you all so much…

It is September 27th and from late July to September has been a Rough patch I fear for us all. So this is a State of my recovery. I am going in to see the Doctor for my heart tomorrow on the 28th, and I will be preparing for the October appointment which will determine which kind of operations I am in for. I have been busy trying to change everything for this appointment because this will be no matter what the outcome is life changing no matter how I see it. I made some progress on the house transition but more needs to be done to completion. I have changed my diet, but more funds will be needed to see that through. I have gotten help from the clubhouse on reconstructing our business to refit it for functionality with our new needs and requirements in mind. I should mention that I run Perfect Storm our Art Enrichment Center with my business partner Mr. Sheldon Eastman, who has also dealt with his own medical issues to the point where he can not be at work for a while. things are stressful for us both, but we persevere. The fundraiser stalled due to so of what was mentioned and the rigors of the Summer transitioning. Thank God and all of you for Crowdsource funding I would NOT have gotten this far were it not for all of you. The Fundraiser is still functional but incomplete due to stalled situations, but I will not give up. I know our country is going through a heck of allot at this very moment, 3 Hurricanes, and their aftermaths still very fresh and raw for many in their own recoveries. Puerto Rico and the Keys happening at this very moment. I feel very guilty at this very moment even imposing on any of you, but we are soooo close to the finish, and the summer did not yield as much as I wished it did. God and yourselves are the best hope to get to the finish of this. I am at 260 shares at the moment and 30 of the most amazing donors have raised in some cases double and triple donations, THANK YOU SO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!
