As many of you know, Fred Kalsow in WI has been experiencing some heart issues last year and has run over into 2019. We thank Shirley for sending the following email. Our thoughts and prayers are are with Fred and Shirley for a full and speedy recovery. We have sure missed them at the Midwestern and wish them both the very best. I am sure he would love to hear from his beagling friends.
Dear friends in beagling,
Hope you’re all doing well this winter, we’re getting snow again! Think Spring!!
Some of you may know that Fred had 3 stents put in his heart in August but just didn’t better.
In fact the past 2 weeks he’s been to ER twice with lightheadedness. This past Wed after being in ER and had several more tests done, they noticed sometimes his heart was slowing down for few seconds. He ended up having a pacemaker put in on Thursday and surgery went well. He came home on Friday with a sling for his arm because he can’t lift his arm above his shoulder for 6 weeks. He’ll have a stress test this Thursday. He’s glad to be home in his own chair and bed. I’ll keep in touch.
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers as he recuperates. Thank you!
Forever Friends in Beagling
