Below is an e-mail message received from John Bergman's wife Pat. ¬†Please keep John in your thoughts and prayers. ¬†I f you would like to send John your get well wishes you'll find his e-mail and snail mail addresses here on our website under 'Contact Classmates.'
On 12/12/12, John Bergman had a heart attack and was life flighted to Aultman Hospital in Canton. ¬†His artery was 100% ¬†blocked. ¬† ¬†The surgeon was waiting for him when the helicopter landed. ¬†Put in a stint to open the artery. ¬† The Dr. said if I wasn't home & got him to the hospital as fast as I did, he would have been gone in an hour. ¬†No damage to the heart. ¬†John didn't doctor or take any medicine, thought he was perfectly healthy. ¬†He had no pain or warning of a heart problem. ¬†
¬† ¬†He was out spliting wood and came in and said something isn't right because he couldn't get his breath. ¬†Then sweat started running down his neck. ¬†Home recuperating, doing ok, extremely tired. ¬†Taking several medicines and needs therapy. ¬†I feel blessed he's alive. Please keep him in your prayers. ¬†Thank you, ¬† ¬†Pat Bergman
