During a routine medical procedure on Oct. 13, 2010 Rodney Melchor experienced serious complications and was placed in ICU for observation. Within a 36-hour period, his kidneys, lungs and heart shut down. He was placed on a ventilator and was receiving dialysis for the better part of two weeks. Rodney was diagnosed with severe acute pancreatitis and continued to receive around the clock care in ICU, including several procedures to address serious issues around his pancreas, abdomen and lungs. After a total of 8 weeks in the hospital, Rodney is finally on the road to recovery. He has been amazingly strong throughout the ordeal as has his wife, Stephanie, and their children, Danielle, Kristen and Damian.
