His surprising diagnosis "I knew something was wrong, but I didn't know it was that serious."
Before Wendell could visit Dr. Chung, his shortness of breath turned into long coughing fits. It was so bad one night that Angie took him to the closest ER, where he was admitted to the ICU. It was there he was later diagnosed with congestive heart failure.
Determined to beat it, Wendell left the hospital following doctor’s orders of a strict diet, regular therapy and medication. But it wasn’t enough, and Wendell’s health got worse. Angie recommended Wendell get a second opinion from Dr. Chung.
At first glance, Dr. Chung could tell something was seriously wrong with Wendell. The doctor monitored him for a few days at Christ Hospital, but before long, he knew it would take something more to turn his health around – Wendell needed a new heart.
