prayers for Russ Leggitt - update added

Russ needs our thoughts and prayers. As some know, he has had a heart problem for a while, and has had one ablation, which is where they go in and either surgically or electrically disable part of the heart muscle that is causing problems. They have recently replaced his pace maker with a different style 3 lead one, and it has restarted his heart once when it stopped completely. He is going to The Cleveland Clinic in Ohio to see if they can do more for him, or if he is a candidate for a more serious ablation. That is all the options he has left. Those that know Russ know he is pretty private about things like this, and I did ask his permission before posting this.

Thanks John, Prayers are offered for Russ. For those who don't know Russ, he is one of the most helpful guys you'll ever meet at a CubFest.

Prayer has been lifted up. My wife and I have moved to different parts of the country and have been in numerous hospitals. Our recent (first) experience with Cleveland Clinic was extraordinary! Everyone, right down to the people that cleaned the rooms, was extremely kind and considerate. And the doctors, wow!

Russ, you are in good hands at the Cleveland Clinic.

Our prayers go out for Russ and Miss Martha. I agree the Cleveland Clinic is the place to be for major medical issues.
