Jon Hospitalized

We got some bad news a couple of days ago. Our close friend Jon was hospitalized. Last Sunday around 10:00 a.m., he basically collapsed and went unconscious. Amy immediately called 911, then turned him over and thinking it was a heart-attack of some sort, began doing chest compressions.

A website was created to provide updated information on Jon's status.

Minutes later, before the paramedics arrived, Jon came to, but had no recollection of anything that just happened. After the ambulance arrived, he passed out again and Jon actually flatlined for about 15 seconds.

The ambulance took him to Long Beach Community hospital where he was admitted to the ICU. Initial tests showed that Jon had a stroke. But then another test confirmed it was not likely a stroke, but could be encephalitis or meningitis.

Regardless of the cause, Jon is currently mentally impaired. He has trouble putting complete sentences together and has trouble finding words. But besides that, he looks and sounds good. We saw him in the hospital.
