My father, Jack Hoeppner had a massive heart attack (with 2 arrests) this morning.
A very long story short….dad is on a ventilator, in induced coma and had a 100% blocked main artery.
The next 24 – 48 hours are critical to determine if dad lives. Tomorrow evening they will try to bring him out of the induced coma to see if there is any brain activity or at what level there is activity.
Mom was with dad when this all happened and performed CPR on him as soon as she could safely stop the vehicle.
The doctors have told us that mom was amazing in her ability to think at that time and credits her greatly.
For those in the medical field……. I greatly apologize for my lack of medical terminology.For those in the engineering field….dad had a complete reboot to his system today.
For those of you who know my dad, he is very strong….AND can be stubborn. Two things he
has going for him right now.
Prayers are greatly welcomed. I do not know how/when we will be able to provide updates….we will do
So when we can.
Thanks,Colleen (the proud daughter of the humble Mennonite, Jack)
