Mighty MikeyD went back to CHOP last week for his check up with Dr. Vetter and some testing of his defibrillator and pace maker. MikeyD's Defibrillator had no activity on it which is good. MikeyD does have some damage to the left ventricular from the Sudden Cardiac Arrest one of the valves has a slight leak, Dr.Vetter will follow it closely to see if it gets worse. The big scar on his chest is looking better. While we were at CHOP we met Dr. Iyer he is the surgeon who installed the built in defibrillator in MikeyD heart. The last time Dr. Iyer had seen MikeyD he was paralyzed in a wheel chair and could not talk. He had read all the neurological reports that said he would never have the use of his hands or arms. When Dr. Iyer walked in the exam room MikeyD gave him a strong firm handshake you could see the doctors face light up. When we were leaving Dr.Iyer came over to me and said I cannot believe he is using his hands and arms he was truly amazed.
This Wednesday January 15th was MikeyD’s Birthday.
We thank God every day that he is still here with us.
MikeyD had a great surprise visit for his Birthday.
The whole Middletown High School North Basketball team and coaches came to the house to celebrate MikeyD’s Birthday! They gave him the best present he could ever get.
That meant more to MikeyD and my family than they will ever know. Coach Mark use to coach MikeyD and I could tell by the smile how happy he was to see Coach Mark again. We would like to thank all the players the coaches and the Cerbo family for all that they have done for MikeyD that night. You guys have no idea how happy you made him.
