2020 was a very rough year for us. Allan suffered a heart attack the Saturday after Thanksgiving and was life-flighted to the hospital in Durango, where he spent five days in the CCU. One of his arteries was completely blocked and they put in a stint, but they were unable to do the other two arteries that were 70% blocked. He still needs to have them done, but we are waiting on approval from the VA. In the meantime, he is recovering nicely, although he tires very easily and is not able to do much. The doctor said the damage to his heart was relatively minor, especially for having had a major heart attack, and for that we are very grateful.
Our grandson, Kyler, has stepped up and is taking care of the animals and the winter feeding. We are so very grateful to have such a wonderful family. Our daughter, Lisa, is also working hard to keep the business running.
Needless to say life has changed quite a bit for Allan, and for me. As we move forward, if you don't see a newsletter come through each month, know you are in our thoughts and that another is probably in the planning. We are taking things one day at a time, and trying to simplify our lives as much as possible. Getting him back to good health is our first priority.
